Media Release — Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Holograms, Storykiller) and Meredith McClaren (Hinges) are putting the pieces back together for Heart in a Box, a new original graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics.
In a moment of post-heartbreak weakness, Emma wishes her heart away, and a mysterious stranger obliges. But emptiness is even worse than grief, and Emma sets out to collect the seven pieces of her heart in a journey that forces her to face her own history and the cost of recapturing it!
A fresh, funny, and action-packed take on heartbreak, Heart in a Box is Thompson and McClaren’s first graphic novel collaboration and comes hot on the heels of Thompson’s critically acclaimed novels, The Girl Who Would Be King and Storykiller.
“Working with Meredith and Dark Horse is a bit like a dream come true, especially since it’s my first graphic novel,” Thompson said. “We’ve been working on the book for a long time now, and I’m excited to finally bring this story to life with Dark Horse and Meredith, who is a fantastic talent.”
Retailing for $14.99, Heart in a Box is currently available to preorder through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound, as well as local comics retailers.
