We have sorted through this week’s new releases to bring you in no particular order, five comics that you simply must read this week!
Twelve-year-old Hazel loves spending summers at her grandmother’s house. Granny’s magical stories of adventure in the Ether are unlike the stories and fairy tales Hazel finds at the library. And then, one summer, Hazel gets a little too curious and discovers the source of those stories. When she falls through a well into a magical dimension, she learns that there’s a dark side to the Ether that her Granny never told her about.

“When I grow up” part one! The sons of Batman and Superman have graduated to their own monthly comic-but if they want to survive, they’re going to have to share it! Writer Peter J. Tomasi (BATMAN & ROBIN, SUPERMAN) teams with rising-star artist Jorge Jimenez (EARTH 2) to bring you the adventures of the World’s Smallest. This debut issue looks at the lives of Robin and Superboy and their destiny to follow in their fathers’ footsteps, while we meet a new villain whose ascension parallels the boys’ own understanding of their powers-except that he believes it’s his right to rule over every being on the planet!
