Soaring Penguin Press has agreed to publish the English edition of A Small Revolution by Boum, the pen name of Samantha Leriche-Gionet. The book, which was nominated for a 2016 Ignatz award for Outstanding Online Comic, was originally published in 2012 in French as La petite révolution.
A Small Revolution is a story of dictatorship and revolution as seen through the eyes of a little girl, and her love for Boris Vian’s music.
Boum is a comic artist, illustrator and animator living in Montreal, Canada. She studied traditional animation for seven years, at the cegep du Vieux Montreal first, then at Concordia University. Her animated shorts have been screened all over the world. Currently, she has entirely devoted herself to her new job as a mom and makes comics during nap times.
A Small Revolution will be published in the latter part of 2017.
