About the Little Girls graphic novel:
Something hunts people on the outskirts of town…
Sam and Lielet are two new friends living in Ethiopia. They’re dealing with the kind of problems that all kids have: judgmental social cliques, condescending adults, alienation… and a legendary brain-eating monster straight out of folklore. Sure, it’s not going to be easy, but all they have to do is live through it. Showcasing a quietly unsettling plot and building tension similar to Nick Drnaso’s Sabrina and Adrian Tomine’s Killing and Dying, Aflleje and DeLaine construct a poignant story of otherness and mystery.
Little Girls (ISBN: 9781534310599, Diamond Code: FEB190018) hits comic shops on Wednesday, April 24 and bookstores on Tuesday, April 30.
Image Comics has announced an eerie, hauntingly original graphic novel, Little Girls, by debut creators Nicholas Aflleje and Sarah DeLaine, set to hit shelves in March 2019.
In Little Girls, readers meet Sam, who has been an outsider all her life. That might have been the case even if her father hadn’t dragged her all around the globe, but it sure didn’t help. Every year, another school and another word for foreigner. Why would things be any different in Harar, Ethiopia? Well, for one thing, there’s Lielet—an outspoken and rebellious local girl who has all the makings of a lifelong friend. Then there is the city itself—a crossroad of cultures and traditions woven together through time that make it feel like anything’s possible. Also, there’s something hunting people on the outskirts of town…
As the disappearances start piling up, Sam and Lielet decide they might be the only ones willing to do anything about it. But as these two young friends bravely strike out into the dark on an exciting new adventure, they soon find that the night has teeth.
