Comic Books/Books


Woman of Tomorrow will be Kara’s first book back. The new eight-issue limited series by (a)Bilquis Evely, (a)Mat Lopes and (w)Tom King, launches on June 15. Could this be the book that finally gives me an appreciation for King?

The classic french cartoon strip is getting a series on Netflix. Will be 3d animated and done in France.
