Alison Dare: Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft in fabulous, graphic adventures.

Alison Dare is not your typical twelve-year-old. She's the daughter of an archaeologist/adventurer and the masked hero known as the Blue Scarab. To top it off, she's also the niece of an international super-spy; it's no surprise that a craving for danger is in her blood! Unfortunately, her parents have locked her away at the prestigious St. Joan's Academy for Girls, hoping that this would lead to a more "normal" life for their daughter.

But despite all the strict rules at the school, Alison and her best pals - Wendy and Dot - somehow manage to find themselves involved in adventures that rival those of Alison's globetrotting, planet-saving relatives. Whether it's magic genies, super-powered bank robbers, or a dastardly baron bent on world domination, Alison Dare delivers the best thrills since Indiana Jones and more action than Lara Croft!

J. TORRES is the acclaimed writer of such kid-friendly comics as Teen Titans Go! and Jason & the Argobots. His partner, artist JASON BONE, is an accomplished cartoonist whose work has graced Spiderman: Tangled Web and Paul Dini's Mutant, Texas.
