Cecil Castellucci Tells All in Graphic Memoir Girl on Film

BOOM! Studioshas announced Girl on Film, a new original graphic novel memoir from award-winning young adult novelist and Eisner-nominated comic book writer, Cecil Castellucci, illustrated by artists Vicky Leta, Jon Berg, V. Gagnon, and Melissa Duffy, available in November 13, 2019. Based on the true story of her own free-spirited coming-of-age as a young, independent creative who fell in love with the art of storytelling, Cecil’s memoir also depicts the nuanced connection between experience and memory.

In 1977, Star Wars released in theaters nationwide and changed young Cecil Castellucci’s life forever. From that moment on, she knew that she would one day become an artist and storyteller who brought her own imagination to life. Thus began the evolution of the young starstruck fan into an aspiring theater kid (who was childhood friends with Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono), a teenage artiste running wild in ‘80s New York, an indie musician in the Montreal punk scene, and finally the acclaimed author and bestselling comic book writer she is today. Along the way, she found that even though nothing ever went according to plan, everything happened the way it should have. 

Chronicling the life of award-winning young adult novelist and Eisner-nominated comics scribe Cecil Castellucci, Girl on Film follows a passionate aspiring artist from the youngest age through adulthood to examine the arduous pursuit of making art, while exploring the act of memory and how it reshapes what we think we truly know about ourselves.

Is there life beyond the confines of Apokolips? Scott Free, the future Mister Miracle, is about to find out. But when Big Barda plays a role in his escape, it could spell trouble not just for her potential promotion to the role of the leader of the Female Furies, but to the very existence of the Furies. The women warriors already have too many secrets among them, and if one is exposed, all are exposed. But which of Darkseid’s minions holds the true key to their destruction? Could it possibly be Granny Goodness herself?

Writer Cecil Castellucci on Female Furies, Plain Janes & Changing Girls

Writer Cecil Castelluccidiscusses how Jack Kirby’s Fourth World Saga powers her new comics series The Female Furies. Female Furies depicts Big Barda’s own feminist awakening on the hell planet Apocalypse–a world so much like our own.

Cecil Castellucci is the award winning and New York Times Bestselling author of books and graphic novels for young adults including Shade, The Changing Girl, Boy Proof, The Plain Janes, Soupy Leaves Home, The Year of the Beasts, Tin Star, and Odd Duck. In 2015 she co-authored Star Wars Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure. She is currently writing The Female Furies with artist Adriana Melo for DC Comics.

Warning: lots of geeking out over the Fourth World Inside:

  • “Bernadeth would be fun at dinner parties”
  • Hockey Noir: The Opera
  • Being ahead of the YA curve
  • There is no allegory, women go through hell
  • We are all doing our own takes on Jack Kirby
  • Passing the Mega-Rod to the next generation
  • Mister Miracle #9 is the lynchpin
  • Here’s Elana’s Daily Beast essay about Glorious Godfrey as Donald Trump

All their lives the Female Furies have been raised to be the meanest, most cunning and most ruthless fighting force on all of Apokolips. So why are Granny Goodness’ girls left behind every time the men go to war? With the might of New Genesis hanging over the planet, and the Forever People making mincemeat out of Darkseid’s army, Granny thinks it’s about time that changed.

And so, Big Barda, Aurelie, Mad Harriet, Lashina, Bernadeth and Stompa set out to beat the boys at their own game. Little do they know the game is rigged-and one accidental murder could spell disaster for them all!

FEMALE FURIES is an exciting new miniseries starring some of Jack Kirby’s coolest Fourth World characters by the writer of SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL and the artist of PLASTIC MAN!
