Description
01
Kat Leyh's Snapdragon is a magical realist graphic novel about a young girl who befriends her town's witch and discovers the strange magic within herself.

Snap's town had a witch.

At least, that's how the rumor goes. But in reality, Jacks is just a crocks-wearing, internet-savvy old lady who sells roadkill skeletons online--after doing a little ritual to put their spirits to rest. It's creepy, sure, but Snap thinks it's kind of cool, too.

They make a deal: Jacks will teach Snap how to take care of the baby opossums that Snap rescued, and Snap will help Jacks with her work. But as Snap starts to get to know Jacks, she realizes that Jacks may in fact have real magic--and a connection with Snap's family's past.

What’s harder than fighting robot aliens and ice monsters? Being in a relationship! SuperCakes follows May and Molly as they learn to live together while still being on-call to battle the next baddie that’s ravaging their city. Kat Leyh’s SuperCakes touches on topics most “capes and tights” comics wouldn’t even fly near.

"Kat's comics shine with wit, sincerity, and warmth — a welcome fresh take on the superhero genre."
– Noelle Stevenson (Eisner-winning writer of Lumberjanes and creator of Nimona)

The Lumberjanes find a treasure map that leads to them to a buried prize...which comes to life and threatens to drain all the magic from the woods around them. That definitely sounds like the opposite of what they wanted!

X MARKS THE SPOT...FOR TROUBLE!

The Roanoke scouts are eager to hunt down what they hope might be some kind of mystical hoard of gems and jewels, rad dinosaur bones, or maybe even more treasure maps (that you have to piece together to find an EVEN BIGGER prize, obviously)! What they end up finding is scattered pieces of an ancient Greek statue of a woman, who, when assembled, comes back to life as a vindictive ex-goddess!n. And she's looking to satisfy her hunger after thousands of years frozen in stone by draining any nearby magical resource...starting with the ‘Janes!
