“Classic comic-style art is effectively deployed to show intense emotion and fast-paced action, and in addition to being nonhuman, the characters represent a diverse group of racial and gender identities that are generally background to the plot. A satisfying climax… makes this a fun choice ideal for a middle-grade audience with a taste for more relatable X-Men–style heroes.” KIRKUS
Six kids search for a new place to call home in this middle grade graphic novel debut by comic creators Cait May and Trevor Bream, for fans of Marvel’s Runaways and The Witch Boy by Molly Knox Ostertag. Another Kind is not your average monster story.
Tucked away in a government facility nicknamed the Playroom, six not-quite-human kids learn to control their strange and unpredictable abilities. Life is good-or safe, at least-hidden from the prying eyes of a judgmental world. That is, until a security breach forces them out of their home and into the path of the Collector, a mysterious being with leech-like powers. Can the group band together to thwart the Collector’s devious plan, or will they wind up the newest addition to his collection?
