Synopsis: Werewolf barista Julie and her new girlfriend go on a date to a close-up magic show, but all heck breaks loose when the magician casts a horrible spell on their friend Chet. Now it's up to the team of mythical pals to stop the illicit illusionist before it's too late.

The first chapter of the brand new, all-ages magical coffee-laden adventure from Lumberjanes creator GRACE ELLIS and talented newcomer SHAE BEAGLE.


Review: This comic is adorable! I love the light and pastel colors used. The character design is breathtaking. I loved spending time on each panel just admiring the background characters. I want so many more stories set in this modern world full of paranormal people. There are werewolves, medusa, and so much more. My favorite is the gender queer centaur barista! There's also a magic a world full of magic. I love it!

In addition to the main story, there's a meta-story of an old family comic in the spirit of Boxcar Children or Babysitters Club, called Pleasant Mountain Sisters. Julie's scribbling is even in the margins of the comic since she's a super fan. 

This comic is full of wonderful diversity. I love the main crew and want to see more of their adventures! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this comic! I give it a 5/5
