This week brings some final issues of comics to which we are not ready to say good-bye! She Could Fly ends this week with issue 4, and it has been such a weird and wonderful addition to our reading list, with the main character, Luna, being unlike any protagonist we've journeyed with before. We also have the long awaited last chapter of The Wilds, from the brilliant Vita Ayala. We can only imagine what dramatic climax awaits!
In better news, we also have some new titles to look forward to! Adventure Time, though canceled on Cartoon Network, continues as a comic, with issue 1 of "season 11" hitting stands this Wednesday! We also have Infinite Dark, which follows Deva, a Security Director investigating a murder...the first murder on a ship of two thousand people who survived after the collapse of the universe!
Some of our favorite ongoing stories return this week, including Catwoman, Ms. Marvel, Sleepless, Squirrel Girl, Unnatural and X-23!

Anne Frank's Diary: The Graphic Adaptation
(W) Anne Frank, Ari Folman (A/CA) David Polonsky
A timeless story rediscovered by each new generation, The Diary of a Young Girl stands without peer. For both young readers and adults it continues to capture the remarkable spirit of Anne Frank, who for a time survived the worst horror the modern world has seen - and who remained triumphantly and heartbreakingly human throughout her ordeal. Adapted by Ari Folman, illustrated by David Polonsky, and authorized by the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel, this is the first graphic edition of The Diary and includes extensive quotation directly from the definitive edition. It remains faithful to the original, while the stunning illustrations interpret and add layers of visual meaning and immediacy to this classic work of Holocaust literature.

Things have gone from bad to worse for Selina in Villa Hermosa. Her new city has taken away what little she was able to carry with her from Gotham, and her rap sheet offers scant protection when local crooks frame her for murdering two police officers. The law has caught up with her and Catwoman is in the clink, giving her time to reflect on her life and all the things that led her to Vila Hermosa. Turns out she didn't choose the move randomly or just to get away from the Batman. This special interlude issue takes us back in time to explode some previously unknown truth bombs from Selina Kyle's past. BATWOMAN artist Fernando Blanco joins Joëlle Jones to explore a couple of the early versions of Catwoman's nine lives.
