Tomorrow! Crystal Cadets from IDW comes to print!


Back cover

The wait is over! Tomorrow the digital comic magical girl series I wrote, CRYSTAL CADETS, is coming to print. Consider it a verrrrrry last minute holiday gift for the young reader in your life. Check out the preview at Bleeding Cool. The 128-page book is full of action and wonderful art, so it’ll be hard to be disappointed. But don’t just listen to me, listen to people like you:

“This series is so cute!! I would say this is a good mixture of a number of things ‚ÄďSailor Moon,¬†The Prophecy of the Stones, and many other girl focused super power team-ups.”

The Book Ramble

“It felt like a breeze of fresh air and a good change after all the super heroes/very serious reads. I would definitely recommend you guys check this out!”

Cat’s Shelf

I know you planned ahead and ordered the trade paperback back in September.¬†In case you can’t find it at your local comic shop, you can still order it online via Amazon. And if you hate dead trees, the digital versions are still yours for the taking!
