Very Near Mint Vol.1 by Justin Peterson Synopsis:
Colin Turner and Sam Jones own a pretty awesome comic book shop, the Splash Page. Business is great, they have a brand new employee, Nate, and Colin's ex-girlfriend Mackenzie is back.
Everything seems like it's fantastic...
That is, until this week's new comics don't show up. Then things get really complicated and everything starts to fall apart and other important stuff also happens, but we don't want to spoil it for you.
That's what the internet is for.
Another book to be on the lookout for – Afterschool Charisma Vol. 1! If you haven’t started our Great Graphic Novels for Teens challenge yet, you should definitely try this title.
After School Charisma Vol. 1 Synopsis:
St. Kleio Academy is a very exclusive school: all of the students are clones of famous historical figures such as Beethoven, Queen Elizabeth I, Napoleon, Mozart, and Freud. All of them, that is, except for Shiro Kamiya. As Shiro struggles to adapt to this unusual campus, St. Kleio's first graduate, the clone of John F. Kennedy, is killed. Are the clones doomed to repeat the fate of their genetic progenitors, or can they create their own destinies? And how does a normal boy like Shiro fit in?
