This excites me. Colleen AF Venable, respected designer and author of the outstanding Guinea Pig, Pet Shop Private Eye series, is writing a graphic novel titled Kiss Number Eight that will be released by First Second in 2016. Art is by Leela Wagner, her first book.
The link has more information on the project and a couple of preview pages, but here’s the killer part of the description for me, from Venable: “I wanted to write a hopeful book about growing up queer in a conservative community.” So, yes, coming-of-age, but one focused on a still-fraught topic. And so pretty!
