Stephen McCranie’s Space Boy Lands at Dark Horse

Dark Horse is partnering with writer and artist Stephen McCranie to bring his unique space opera webcomic Space Boy to the page as a four-volume graphic novel series. Currently serialized on Webtoons.com with over 50,000 unique readers, McCranie’s Space Boy is a coming of age story of a high-school-aged girl who belongs in a different time, a boy possessed by emptiness as deep as space, an alien artifact, mysterious murder, and a love that crosses light years.

Amy lives on a mining colony in out in deep space, but when her dad loses his job the entire family is forced to move back to Earth. Amy says goodbye to her best friend Jemmah and climbs into a cryotube where she will spend the next 30 years frozen in a state of suspended animation, hurtling in a rocket toward her new home. Her life will never be the same, but all she can think about is how when she gets to Earth, Jemmah will have grown up without her.
