Blue Moon: From the Journals of Mama Mae and Leelee

Alicia Keys, Jessica Walton, Cheryl Abood, Victoria Racino (w) • Bento Box (a & c)

From the interactive story telling app The Journals of Mama Mae and LeeLee, Blue Moon is an inspirational and magical tale of discovery created by Grammy™ Award-winning artist Alicia Keys, and was inspired by her childhood relationship with her own grandmother.

Blue Moon introduces readers to young and imaginative LeeLee, who just moved to the big city, and her magical grandmother, Mama Mae. To help LeeLee adjust to her new home, Mama Mae tells her the story of Abey, a young Native American girl from the 17th century, and her adventurous yet magical evening when she too wasn’t sure of her surroundings.

Filled with warmth, discovery, and powerful messages, Blue Moon provides a great example of overcoming fear and finding similarities in life despite differences of time or territory.

Superman: The Golden Age Sundays: 1946–1949

Various (w & a) • Pete Poplaski (c)

In a full eighteen adventures, Superman’s travels take him around the globe as well as through time and space. The Man of Steel solves the case of the Curiosity Crimes, becomes a rival for Cleopatra’s affections in ancient Egypt, is exposed to radiation that turns him into Superbabe, battles a prehistoric animal called a “Paleomatzoball” (!), reprises the “Superman’s Service to Servicemen” series with a couple of services for veterans, encounters an ancient civilization in the lost valley of Ru, meets up with Angus the talking dog, and to top it all off, witnesses Lois marrying Clark Kent—or does he?!

Superman was created in 1938 by two ambitious Cleveland youngsters, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel. Their defender of the oppressed became an enduring smash sensation in comics, radio, animation, television, and motion pictures. He remains the little guy’s White Knight, battling terrestrial and extra-terrestrial menaces and standing for Truth, Justice, and the American Way.
