|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 14, 2015—In June 2016, Dark Horse Books will be pleased to offer How to Talk to Girls at Parties, a brilliant new graphic novel adaptation of an award-winning short story from Neil Gaiman—one of the most celebrated authors of our time—by award-winning artists Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá.
Originally published in Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things: Short Fiction and Wonders, “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” quickly became a celebrated work, receiving a nomination for a 2007 Hugo Award for Best Short Story and winning the Locus Award for Best Short Story the same year.
Now Moon and Bá are set to adapt the Gaiman story they were born to draw in a sumptuous graphic novel that is not to be missed.
“They have a storytelling aesthetic where [depicting] body language is everything. The story is all about what’s in the narrators’ heads, so it can be very hard to do that in comics. It’s incredibly enjoyable to write a story and see them make it real,” said Neil Gaiman in an exclusive interview with Publishers Weekly.
In How to Talk to Girls at Parties, two teenage boys are in for a tremendous shock when they crash a party where the girls are far more than they appear!
How to Talk to Girls at Parties is in stores June 15, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop or through these fine retailers:
