The Almost Epic Squad 1 Mucus Mayhem
Jessica Flem has spent the better part of her life reacting allergically to everything - and much of it in her basement where she rules the online game Gang of Greats. She’s used to a nose that never stops running, but is not prepared for the mysterious power that shows up around her thirteenth birthday: the ability to transform her snot-filled tissues into slimy, magical helpers. And just in time, too! It turns out there are forces both good and evil who have had their eyes on her and three other “special” kids who were exposed to a mysterious element called reidium. Jess must draw on her full video game knowledge to face the evil Boss and her equally evil henchwoman, Garvia Greep, in real life as they scheme to rule the world through the powers of reidium. With her best friend, Cliff, at her side, and with the stakes ratcheting higher and higher, Jess and her arsenal of snot-filled tissues must make the world of Dimly, Manitoba, a safe place once again. Black and white illustrations throught; 9 page black and white comic panels. Author: Kevin Sylvester. Hardcover. 9+ years.
