Daphne Byrne. Written by Laura Marks, art by Kelley Jones, covers by Piotr Jablonski ($24.99, 9781779504654, November 13).
It's 1890s New York, and after the death of Daphne Byrne's father, her mother is drawn to a spiritualist group that claims to speak to the dead. Daphne sees through their act right away, but something from the other side sees her too, and soon "Brother" offers support and encourages Daphne to stand up for herself--and to use the powers he has too.
Laura Marks says, "What's a young girl supposed to do when a charming demon invades her mind and eats her soul?"
