Little White Mouse

According to the NCRL, tomorrow should see the Little White Mouse Perfect Collection, vol. 1 hitting the shelves of comic stores. If you have not yet read Little White Mouse, now is the perfect time to discover Paul Sizer's scifi fable. LWM tells the story of Loo, a teenage girl from a well-to-do family on Earth who is marooned on an abandoned mining colony. She's the only living human there, but is kept company by robots, AI holograms, and the mental patterns of her dead sister, trapped in the memory of her crashed spaceship's computer. I know, it sounds a bit morbid, but it's not; it's good fun and adventure with great characters and impressive black and white art from Sizer. So give it a try.

Also out tomorrow are the third issue of Amelia Rules: Superheroes and the fourth volume of the reissued Banana Fish, though you may want to go back and hunt down the earlier volumes of both if you haven't been keeping up.
