Your First Look At New YA Graphic Novel ‘Zatanna: The Jewel Of Gravesend’ For 2021 From DC Comics

by Olly MacNamee

DC Comics continue to build on its YA output with the news that writer Alys Arden, artist Jacquelin De Leon and letterer Ariana Maher will be bringing you a very youthful Zatanna in the new graphic novel Zatanna: The Jewel of Gravesend. Out on April 13rd, 2021 we have a first look at the cover and some select interior art. We also have a very informative synopsis for one of DC’s premium magic usres. All reimagined as a New York teenager and set, for some of the book at least, at the fun fair!
“Zatanna’s not your typical New Yorker. She walks her giant rabbit on a leather leash down the boardwalk, lives in a colossal architectural wonder known as the Golden Elephant, had her first kiss in the Haunted Hell Gate ride – and wouldn’t have it any other way.
But the time for having fun in Luna Park comes to an end when a mystic’s quest for a powerful jewel unravels everything Zatanna thought she knew about herself and her beloved neighborhood. Mysteries and magic surround her as she reveals the truth about her family’s legacy, and confronts the illusion that has been cast over her entire life. 
From the bewitching mind behind ‘The Casquette Girl’s, Alys Arden, and with enchanting artwork by Jacquelin de Leon, comes the story of a girl stuck in the middle of a magical rivalry and forced to chose between love, family, and magic without hurting anyone…or worse.”
