BOOM! Studios and Archaia Reveal a First Look at Sanpaku
BOOM! Studios has released an extended early preview of Sanpaku being released the the publisher’s Archaia imprint.
Arriving in stores this August, Sanpaku, from cartoonist Kate Gavino gives voice to the insecurities that haunt teens of all cultures told through the eyes of Marcine, a young woman fascinated with the Japanese idea of Sanpaku—that seeing the white around the iris of your eyes is a bad omen. But it’s everywhere Marcine looks—her grandmother has it, some classmates at Catholic school have it, JFK had it…even Marcine might suffer from this odd condition. Eating a strict macrobiotic diet and meditating is supposed to help, but no matter how much Marcine wants it to, it can’t save her grandmother’s life or make her days at school any easier.
