Read an Excerpt from Nnedi Okorafor’s New Graphic Novel LaGuardia

The Millions has just posted an excerpt from author Nnedia Okorafor’s latest graphic novel!

LaGuardia by Nnedi Okorafor finds the Hugo award-winning author weaving extraterrestrial travel with political elements as a veiled allegory tackling the United States’ immigration policies. Tana Ford and James Devlin are the artists for the book.

Set in the future, LaGuardia follows pregnant Nigerian-American doctor Future Nwafor Chukwuebuka who is en route from Lagos to New York and assisting a plant-like alien in fleeing from violence. Next up: smuggling the refugee through LaGuardia’s Interplanetary Airport.

LaGuardia is scheduled for release on July 30 by Dark House/Berger Books.
