Dark Horse Books Reveals The First Look at Angel Catbird
This fall, Dark Horse Books will publish one of the most eagerly anticipated and unusual books of the year: Angel Catbird, the first graphic novel by Margaret Atwood, the Man Booker Award-winning author of The Blind Assassin, The Handmaid’s Tale, and The Heart Goes Last. For her first graphic novel, Atwood is collaborating with artist Johnnie Christmas and colorist Tamra Bonvillain for a weird and wonderful tale about a part-cat, part-bird superhero.
Angel Catbird is the latest politically charged book by Atwood, who was recently named the recipient of the 2016 PEN Pinter Prize for her political and environmental activism. Angel Catbird is being published by Dark Horse Books in tandem with Keep Cats Safe and Save Bird Lives, an initiative led by Nature Canada, the oldest conservation charity in the country.
Angel Catbird (978-1-50670-063-2) will be a 3 volume series of 6” x 9” full color hardcovers, priced at $14.99 each. More information about the Angel Catbird graphic novels and Nature Canada’s campaign will be released throughout 2016.
