We read the first volume of DESTINY, NY and it was really fun! Two magical girls falling in love and saving the world? Heck, yes.

Clueless gets the graphic novel treatment! I really loved spending some time with Cher, Dionne, and Tai. If you need a break from the 2017 hellscape, this is a fresh and fun choice.
