Hero Cats of Skyworld #16

A new beginning! Bandit is transported to the Crow King’s realm and it’s a land of magic, dark spirits, and fairies. Featuring new Hero Cats – Lancelot, Sapphire, Newton, and Madalyn. This is a perfect starting point for new readers.

Whoa. Whoa whoa. I feel like I’ve gone through some sort of comic wormhole or something. It’s been what, at least a half dozen issues of filler and we’re back to the ongoing story. Sort of? Not at all as we’d expect though, as issue sixteen is now the Hero Cats of Skyworld, so we’re totally not in Kansas Stellar City anymore.

The one link we do get to the original Hero Cats is the opener of Bandit and his robot companion landing in a strange new world...

Hero Cats #15

Rocket’s origin is revealed! Debuting the art of Hero Cats writer and creator Kyle Puttkammer.

Now this is a pretty special issue to return to after nearly missing this one. Not only do we get origin stories for two of our heroes, but debut art from the creator? I would have already enjoyed issue fifteen of Hero Cats, but that makes it all the more exciting.

Before becoming the strong member he is, Rocco started out living on the sea with his father. Rocket however, was the very first cat to be born in space, before sadly having to escape to Earth because of pirates. By chance meeting, these two eventually meet and become both friends and teammates in the Hero Cats team...

Rose #1

A classic fantasy tale about a girl trying to restore balance to a broken world. Rose must connect with her Khat—Thorne—to become the Guardian the world needs. But things aren’t easy for Rose and Thorne, the powerful sorcerous Drucilla has many powerful and demonic allies—all of them focused on stopping one scared little girl who’s desperately trying to stay alive and do what’s right. Written by MEREDITH FINCH (Wonder Woman, Little Mermaid), and drawn by fan-favorite artist IG GUARA (Batman: Arkham Knight, Blue Beetle, The Ravagers).

So let’s get this out of the way: Rose apparently has nothing to do with Jeff Smith’s Bone. This was my first assumption, seeing as the names “Rose” and “Thorn” are pretty unequivocally linked to Mr. Smith’s series. There is a Bone p...
