A Queer Romance For The Modern Age – Preview Luisa: Now And Then From Humanoids

by Hannah Means Shannon

This week, the new Life Drawn imprint at Humanoids brings us a much-heralded graphic novel that’s well-suited to release in Pride Month.

Luisa: Now and Then has been adapted by Mariko Tamaki from an original work by Carole Maurel and is described thus:

A disillusioned photographer has a chance encounter with her lost teenage self who has miraculously traveled into the future. Together, both women ultimately discover who they really are, finding the courage to live life by being true to themselves. Luisa’s sexuality is revealed to be a defining element of her identity, one which both of her selves must come to terms with. A time-traveling love story that turns coming-of-age conventions upside down, Luisa is a universal queer romance for the modern age.

Here’s that preview of Luisa: Now and Then available both in bookstores and comic shops this week:
