Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol (First Second 07 June 2011 / $15.99) - Product Description: Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn't kidding about the "Forever" part . . .

Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who's been dead for a century.

Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya's normal life might actually be worse. She's embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she's pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend—even a ghost—is just what she needs. Or so she thinks. (see review)

Dungeon: Monstres Vol. 4 Night of the Ladykiller by Joann Sfar and Lewis Trondheim (Nantier Beall Minoustchine Publishing June 2011 / $14.99) - From back of book: Vulture sorcerer Horus, a ladykiller? Who knew? Yet, as the first sotry in this volume shows, he is accused of impregnating a slew of women. The second story takes a much lighter tone starring Grogro the big, always hungry goofball seen in many stories before, especially in the Parade series. Here, he's the hero, or at least tries to be, on a first mission to pick up barrels of beer from a bunch of bunny rabbit beer brewers. Question is: will he solve the problem... or just eat (and drink) it?

Guest artists: Night of the Ladykiller, Jean-Emmanuel, Vermont-Desroches; Ruckus at the Brewers, Yoann. (Source: Nantier Beall Minoustchine Publishing)
