BOOM! Studios has added another original graphic novel to its 2021 slate with Guerilla Green, The comic from Cookie Kalkair and Ophélie Damblé follows a 30-year-old city-dweller as she joins the guerilla gardening movement which has been fighting to bring more green back to cities for decades.
This city gal’s putting the guerillas’ motto into action by reviving the true spirit of her city and showing everyone the true nature of their world! Explore the real world of the guerilla gardening movement that teaches us the principles of making our cities more beautiful and sustainable places, one plant at a time.
“While working with Ophélie for more than a year on this book, she has shown me that my city deserves more than just endless layers of concrete and buildings,” said Kalkair. “More plants and more life! And that the Green Revolution is accessible to ANYONE— even to a comic book geek like me.”
“I would never have thought that I would become a comic book character one day AND that green hair would suit me that well!” said Damblé. “I’m so excited to see our graphic novel on guerilla gardening in the US, and I hope it will motivate you to PLANT EVERYWHERE!”
“The passion and excitement that Cookie and Ophélie bring to the subject of guerilla gardening is incredibly infectious! When you read their graphic novel, Guerilla Green, you’ll immediately want to grab a pair of gloves, some plants, and go make your city a greener place for everyone to enjoy,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios.
Guerilla Green is set for release in April 2021.
