KIM W. ANDERSSON'S ALENA COMES TO AMERICA
I have quickly become a fan of writer / artist Kim W. Andersson after reading the stellar Complete Love Hurts collection, published last year by Dark Horse Comics. The publisher has announced the upcoming release of Alena, a graphic novel from Andersson coming this August, so you can imagine my excitement. Alena originally debuted in Sweden where it was adapted into a feature length film that recently debuted at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Here's the write-up from Dark Horse:
Alena’s life is a living hell. Since she arrived at a snobbish boarding school, she’s been harassed every day by Philippa and the girls on the lacrosse team. But Alena’s best friend Josephine is not going to accept that anymore.
Not from the counselor or the principal, not from Philippa, and not from anyone else at that horrid school. If Alena does not fight back, then Josephine will take matters into her own hands.
I was in based on Andersson's name alone, but did you see that cover? Damn. I cannot wait to see what this book has in store for us on this side of the pond. Alena is set for release on August 24th, 2016.
