REVIEW: 'Home Sick Pilots' #2 by Dan Watters, Caspar Wijngaard, and Aditya Bidikar

The Old James House has lost its ghosts. With her new powers, it's up to Ami to bring them back...whether they want to come home or not. Even when they're really big ghosts wrapped in metal, with lots of sharp edges and things. HOME SICK PILOTS #2 Writer: Dan Watters Artist: Caspar Wijngaard Letterer: Aditya Bidikar  Designer: Tom Muller Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 13, 2021 Cover Price: $3.99 Score:  ★★★☆☆ (3/5) A powered-up ghostified Ami has been compelled to find the ghosts of The Old James House in the form of an enchanted horseshoe. Its current bearer isn't going to give it up so easily. Meanwhile, Ami's friends Buzz and Rip are left looking for answers about her whereabouts back at the house.

World's Greatest Musical Genius Comes To Graphic Novels in 'Young Mozart' by William Augel

With the graphic novel YOUNG MOZART, cartoonist William Augel provides a tender and playful glimpse into the life of the world's greatest musical genius, based on real events in his childhood.



Little Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lives only for music. The young virtuoso is looking for (and finding) inspiration all around him: in the sounds of birds, crickets and frogs; in the cries of his sister; even in the poop of his dog. 

For comic readers, the whimsical storytelling (and most especially the scenes with a boy and his dog) will recall the charm of Charles Shultz’s PEANUTS…. But with more music (and more historically accurate info). It’s a charming tale, riddled with good humor, and, yes, real musical chords. 

The book has been endorsed by Joanne Pearce Martin, the Principal Keyboardist for the Los Angeles Philharmonic who writes: "Wolferi's inspired musical antics spark the reader's imagination. It's a wonderful mix of historically accurate information and humor that brings out the playful child inside of all of us. You'll have so much fun during the journey, you won't realize how much you’ve learned!" 

The internationally renowned publisher Humanoids has been expanding its storytelling focus with BIG, which features all ages and YA graphic novels--including the acclaimed BIGBY BEAR by Philippe Coudray.  And now Humanoids will publish YOUNG MOZART in bookstore on April 23 and in comic book stores on April 24.
