PAPER GIRLS #1 
In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Stand By Me meets War of the Worlds in this mysterious young adult adventure, starting with a spectacular double-sized first issue. The Image Firsts: PAPER GIRLS #1 edition is available with Diamond Code MAY168030.

MONSTRESS #1
Steampunk meets Kaiju in this original fantasy epic for mature readers, as young Maika risks everything to control her psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, placing her in the center of a devastating war between human and otherworldly forces. The adventure begins in a spectacular triple-sized first issue, with sixty-six pages of story. The Image Firsts: MONSTRESS #1 edition is available with Diamond Code MAY168031.

I HATE FAIRYLAND #1
The Adventure Time/Alice in Wonderland-style epic that smashes its cute little face against Tank Girl/Deadpool-esque violent madness has arrived. In an adventure that ain't for the little kiddies, (unless you have super cool parents, then whatever), you'll meet Gert—a six year old girl who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for thirty years and will hack and slash her way through anything to find her way back home. Join Gert and her giant battle-axe on a delightfully blood soaked journey to see who will survive the girl who hates Fairyland. The Image Firsts: I HATE FAIRYLAND #1 edition is available with Diamond Code MAY168029.
