When the school is attacked by magical forces that few have seen before, our heroes face a mystery and an enemy that could spell doom for them all. Can they count on the wielder of the Dragon Flame to return to them in their darkest hour? Or is Bloom lost forever?
The Netflix show ended with many exciting moments, and author Olivia Cuartero Briggs promises that this new graphic novel series will pick up where the show left off and bring those storylines storylines to the end. She teased that fans can expect to see more darker monsters and themes; romantic storylines (yes, you've seen a some tension between Musa and Riven!); and fun twists and turns along the along the way (Beatrix is back!).
"It's extremely feminine oriented; these are powerful characters who run their business in their own way, and I think that's something you rarely see," says Cuartero-Briggs. "What I love about it is that the teachers are not responsibility ... these girls really run everything, and they're complicated. There are so many different nuances to their characters, and they're so much growing up."
