Image Comics’ Little Girls OGN Book Tour Announced

by Oliver MacNamee

To mark the reales of Little Girls, an original graphic novel from creators Nicholas Aflleje and Sarah DeLaine, the two are planning a signing tour across parts of America. Are they coming to your town? Well, check out the dates and location below and find out if you’re lucky. Luckier still if you can make one of the dates as there’s the promise of live music too. Most excellent!

But, first, more about this new book, out on Wednesday, the 24th of March from Image Comics.

Something hunts people on the outskirts of town…

Sam and Lielet are two new friends living in Ethiopia. They’re dealing with the kind of problems that all kids have: judgmental social cliques, condescending adults, alienation… and a legendary brain-eating monster straight out of folklore. Sure, it’s not going to be easy, but all they have to do is live through it. Showcasing a quietly unsettling plot and building tension similar to Nick Drnaso’s Sabrina and Adrian Tomine’s Killing and Dying, Aflleje and DeLaine construct a poignant story of otherness and mystery.
