Seven Secrets #14 releases this week from Boom! Studios. Tom Taylor and Daniele Di Nicuolo’s fantastical story continues to twist and turn as it builds steam in the second part of the third arc.

I can honestly say that this is my favorite ongoing book, and one of the only competitors it has is another book that is also from Taylor.
