Lion Forge Comics will release two double-size editions of popular 80s nostalgia TV-based graphic novels Punky Brewster and Saved By The Bell this summer.

Punky Brewster: Punky Power includes the original sold-out Punky Brewster adventure reboot graphic novel as well as a new adventure on the streets of New York.  Written by Joelle Sellner, the collection features art by Lesley Vamos. In the new story, plucky young Punky and Brandon are on a trip to New York City with adoptive dad, Henry, so that he can do a photo shoot. Left to her own devices, Punky soon gets swindled by a street vendor, which leads to a mad chase through the streets of the Big Apple.

The 256-page paperback in aimed at readers ages 6 – 10 and  has an MSRP of $12.99. Release is scheduled for August.

Saved by the Bell: Freshman Year is a new edition of the Saved by the Bell  trade paperback (see “Review: 'Saved by the Bell' TP”) plus a new volume of stories, including the sold-out Bayside Warriors one shot. Written by Joelle Sellner & MK Reed, the comic is illustrated by Chynna Clugston Flores, Tim Fish, and Joe Flood. Last year’s collection was selected for the ILA’s Children’s Choice Reading List and nominated for a Children’s Choice Book Award.

The 256-page paperback in aimed at readers ages 12 and up, and has an MSRP of $12.99. Release is scheduled for July 13.
