We’re excited to share some images from Grimoire Noir, a graphic novel from author Vera Greentea and artist Yana Bogatch, coming in 2018 from First Second!
Bucky Orson is a bit angsty, but who isn’t at fifteen? His best friend left him to hang out with way cooler friends, his cop dad is always in his business, and in a world where boys are forbidden to read—and only girls, with their inherent magical powers, get access to books—he feels left behind. When his little sister goes missing, Bucky has to get out of his own head and investigate the small town that gave him so much grief, only to discover a conspiracy that will change his mind and the lives of the inhabitants forever.
Check out the first three pages of Grimoire Noir below. Plus, author Vera Greentea lists five other tales with magical books at their centers—join in the comments to add your own!
