“What if Magical Girls aren’t Earth’s champions after all? The world’s most beloved heroes Aoe, Thel, and Gen, better known as the Lovely Trio, first burst onto the scene five years ago when they saved Earth from a surprise space monster attack! Since then, everyone–including Gigi, whose brother died as a bystander in a Lovely Trio battle– has idolized them as superheroic pop icons. But when Gigi witnesses the Lovely Trio battling a monster firsthand, she sees something that causes her to question everything she thought she ever knew about her heroes!
SAVE YOURSELF! #1 features main cover art by series artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews, a Magical Girl variant cover by acclaimed director and artist Stephanie Gonzaga (Ducktales), and variant cover art by fan-favorite illustrator Kevin Wada (DC Pride).”
I absolutely adored this first issue. The story is a fun and unique take on the magical girl heroes concept. I love the diversity of the characters, and how immediately loveable so many are. This is going to be a fantastic series!
The art is beautiful and cute. The colors are gorgeous and so perfectly suited to the story. Character designs, scenes, and just the overall look are all so well done. The lettering is fantastic.
