When we got Mae #1 by Gene Ha in our e-mail, I was thrilled. I’ve long been a fan of his work and the chance to see him work on a personal project excites me to no end. It looks to be the right kind of comic for female readers, but should also appeal to anyone that fondly remembers Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld, likes fantastic, naturalistic comic art, or fans of great storytelling in comics. If you want to get a copy of this book, the final order cutoff is April 25. Otherwise, look for it in better comic shops on May 18.
Until we can properly review the book, here’s a preview of it.

The Kickstarter sensation continues in comics!
When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and for the last couple of years has been having great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. She was a celebrated action hero! But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, has had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time. Her tales are too hard to believe; that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . .
* A new series from four time Eisner-winning artist Gene Ha!
