Wet Moon Vol. 1: Feeble Wanderings (New Edition)
Writer: Sophie Campbell
Artist: Sophie Campbell
Cover Artists: Sophie Campbell and Annie Mok
An all-new edition of the first book in Sophie Campbell’s critically acclaimed original graphic novel series, Wet Moon! With brand new covers designed by cartoonist Annie Mok (Screen Tests) and special extras in the back, this edition is perfect for longtime fans and new readers alike!
An unusually usual day-to-day story in the Deep South, set in the gothic, swampy southern town of Wet Moon, a place fraught with lousy love lives, teen angst, and shadowy locals. As Cleo Lovedrop heads off for college at the local art school, she’s haunted by her melancholic past: a lost love, a lost child. Friends and enemies live their lives around her, as trouble and dissent brews amongst them: an unseen social assailant spreads slander about Cleo, she is forced to deal with her two brusque roommates, and discovers unsolved mysteries about the girl who lived in her room previously. As the moon grows full and lunar rays shine down, lunacy and moon-calves run free. Goths, friendship, romance, sex, betrayal, gossip, cats, murder, guilt, a squirrel monkey, and all the terrible and wonderful things people do to each other.
Why It’s Neat:
Includes a fanart section in the back of the book!
This slice-of-life, Southern gothic mystery features a diverse cast of women; body diversity, women of color, and people with disabilities are represented throughout the series.
Included on Diamond Bookshelf’s “Spring 2016 Recommended Reads for Older Teens (16+)” list!
Whether you’re an existing fan or a newcomer to Sophie Campbell’s work, you’ll love this updated edition that contains some of the best writing you’ll see in print!
Rick and Morty #13
Writer: Tom Fowler
Artists: CJ Cannon, Ryan Hill

Rick and Morty are stuck inside the severed head of another dimension’s Morty, and things are getting… weird. They still have a narrow chance of saving their own dimension from alien invasion… but only if Morty can get the science right!
Why It’s Neat:
Written by artist Tom Fowler (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, The Thrilling Adventure Hour)!
Rick and Morty were trapped in a Rickverse. Now they’re trapped in a different universe… a whole different, Stupid universe… a MORTYVERSE!
It’s a lot of dumb mixed with a lot of fun. And who can pass that up?
