Three Women’s Lives Interconnect Unexpectedly: November From Fraction, Charretier, Hollingsworth

by Oliver MacNamee

Image Comics are to publish a sequence of three graphic novellas by Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals, Hawkeye), Elsa Charretier (Star Wars, Infinite Loop),  Matt Hollingsworth, and Kurt Ankeny, titled November.

In November, the lives of three women intersect in a dark criminal underground. As fire and violence tear through their city over the course of a single day and night, they find that their lives are bound together by one man—who seems to be the cause of it all.

That’s the basic synopsis, but Fraction had more to say about this all new graphic novel trilogy to entice you in:

November is a crime thriller about three women connected by unforeseen and terrible circumstances—the kind of random encounter with chaos and darkness that upends lives without warning, walking the line between accident and catastrophe. As a serialized series of novels, the format of November gives us the space and time to explore who these women were before and after everything changed for them, in a sprawling story of chaos and coincidence where everything happens according to a pattern, but no plan ever goes off without a hitch. It’s the kind of story only comics can tell in the way only a comic can tell them, and I couldn’t ask for better collaborators than Elsa, Matt, and Kurt.

November, vol. I hardcover will be in comic shops on Wednesday, November 6 and bookstores on Tuesday, November 12. The final order cutoff for comic shop retailers is Monday, August 5.
