The extraordinary education of Nicholas Benedict by Trenton Lee Stewart; illustrated by Diana Sudyka — is a must-read for anyone who has read books from Stewart's series, The Mysterious Benedict Society. Nine-year-old Nicholas has been shifted from orphanage to orphanage because no one quite knows how to deal with this brilliant, bizarre child plagued with narcolepsy. At Rothchild's End Nicholas encounters unchallenged bullies, self-absorbed adults, and ridiculous rules and procedures. He also presented with an intriguing mystery that if solved could make him a millionaire and buy his freedom from insufferable orphanages forever. On his quest to find the enigmatic treasure before the orphanage's director, Nicholas faces unexpected obstacles, but also forms rich frienships.
Wonder Woman Vol. 1 Blood (The New 52) — is a bold reimagining. Greek gods with odd, new looks (Hades has a candle for a head), scenes out of a horror movie (centaurs sprout from decapitated horses), and lots of butt kicking by one of the most iconic heroines. Brian Azzarrello has taken this comic in a new direction, and it's never been more exciting. If you love Greek mythology then check it out.
