“Thought-provoking… gorgeous” – Newsarama
San Diego, CA (November 8, 2011) – IDW Publishing and the SuicideGirls are excited to announce that SUICIDEGIRLS, Vol. 1 is now available in stores. This 120-page graphic novel is caught in a near-future defined by its rigid conformity and persecution of women. The SuicideGirls are the last hope for freedom. Can they take down the techno-religious cult, Way*of*Life, or will they die trying?
“We are thrilled to finally have a SuicideGirls comic book and were grateful for the opportunity to work with such a talented team,” Missy Suicide said about the partnership between IDW and the SUICIDEGIRLS.
SUICIDEGIRLS offers a unique attitude of alternative cultures in a vibrant, positive community of women and men. This story of butt-kicking and witty banter written by Steve Niles, Missy Suicide, and Brea and Zane Grant is sure to keep fans enthralled. The full color graphic novel also features variant SUICIDEGIRLS photos, and art by Cameron Stewart and David Hahn.
Newsarama.com enthused “Grant’s deft pacing and snappy, concise dialogue make SUICIDEGIRLS an entertaining read, while the ideas behind them make it a thought-provoking one… and David Hahn’s pencils are gorgeous.”
With the writing team of actress Brea Grant (Heroes, Halloween 2, Friday Night Lights) and Zane Grant, the co-founder of SUICIDEGIRLS, Missy Suicide, and well-known American comic book creator Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), this graphic novel will be sure to keep fans on the edge of their seat.
