The Adorable Beastling is The Ugly Duckling in Reverse

Action Lab: Discover presents Jonathan Rosenbaum‘s The Adorable Beastling! This is the tale of The Ugly Duckling in reverse. In this world, Beastling are fierce creatures that scare for food. But one group of young Beastlings have an adorable oddball among them who is too cute to live up to the Beastling ways. How will she survive in this scary world?

Creator/writer/illustrator Jonathan Rosenbaum had this to say:

It’s a non-traditional take on a traditional story in a familiar yet odd world, meant to relate to children and people of all ages. That it’s OK to be yourself. I find that the idea of not fitting it is common.  I wanted a sweet, fun and unique way to express this, and I feel like I’ve done it.

A standalone Action Lab: Discover story about accepting yourself for who you are, The Adorable Beastling is the perfect book to help kids get into reading. Out in comic book stores this November 2019, you can pre-order the hardcover with the Diamond item code SEP191360.

Your First Look at Cecil Castellucci’s Graphic Novel Memoir Girl on Film

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Girl on Film, an original graphic novel memoir from award-winning young adult novelist and Eisner-nominated comic book writer, Cecil Castellucci, illustrated by artists Vicky Leta, Melissa Duffy, V. Gagnon, and Jon Berg, available in November 2019. 

In 1977, Star Wars released in theaters nationwide and changed young Cecil Castellucci’s life forever. From that moment on, she knew that she would one day become a storyteller who brought her own imagination to life. Thus began the evolution of the young starstruck fan into an aspiring theater kid (whose high school friends were Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono), a teenage artiste running wild in ‘80s New York, an indie musician in the Montreal punk scene, and finally the acclaimed author and bestselling comic book writer she is today. Girl on Film brings those memories to life on the page, and then asks us to examine just how time and perspective can color those memories.

Girl on Film will be available for sale November 13, 2019 at local comic book shops and on November 19, 2019 at bookstores.

LOAC Essentials, Vol. 13: Charlie Chan, 1938

Alfred Andriola (w & a & c)

As a famed hero of the mystery novels by Earl Derr Biggers, Inspector Charlie Chan reached even greater heights in a series of popular movies. As actor Sidney Toler was preparing to replace Warner Oland as the wily police detective in 1938, Alfred Andriola was tapped to create a newspaper strip version of the character. The pride of the Honolulu Police Department uses his intellect more than his fists to solve cases of international intrigue, and the syndicate’s initial promwith thes otion called Charlie Chan “a new mystery strip, totally devoid of guns and gangsters” to separate it from Dick Tracy and his many hard-boiled imitators. Featuring the first complete year of daily strips, from October 1938 to November 1939, this volume offers readers exciting adventures, snappy dialogue, and arresting art.
