In the upcoming middle grade graphic novel Meesh the Bad Demon by Michelle Lam, the titular demon is bad because she sees the good in those around her! This leads the bad demon Meesh to be bullied by the other demons. However, disaster leads Meesh to seek help in another world.

Meesh the Bad Demon

Here’s the description of the comic from the publisher:

“Meesh is a bad demon. ‘Bad’ in that she always sees the good in those around her—which isn’t how a demon is meant to feel or act.

“Bullied by the other demons, twelve-year-old Meesh is more likely to be found reading magazines from Plumeria City—the fairy realm—and fangirling about the fairy princesses. But when disaster strikes and all of demon-kind is threatened, Meesh must journey to other worlds in search of help.

“As luck would have it, she meets a fairy princess right away. Things in the fairy realm aren’t so perfect either, though. As Meesh makes surprising new friends and unites a band of outcasts, she learns there’s much more to being a demon than she ever realized. And learning to love herself might just uncover the secret to saving her home.”
