Cover Reveal: ‘We Found a Monster’
Today we’re unveiling the cover of We Found a Monster, the new graphic novel by Kirk Scroggs (Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid), coming from DC in on January 12, 2021. If you check out our interview with Kirk from last year, when Swamp Kid came out, he tells us a little bit about this book. And now it’s on the way! Official press release below.
Kirk Scroggs (The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid) brings you a new type of best friend!
Casey has always loved monster movies; in fact, he considers himself something of an expert in monsters. He spends his day doing normal kid things, like attending school and riding his bike around his town of Serena Mar–and filling his journal with helpful ways to take care of the various monsters who live all around them…whom no one else seems to know exist.
But as Casey delves deeper into the history of his spooky friends–or are they fiends? –he uncovers more than just skeletons in the closet. Turns out there’s a Frankenstein and maybe a werewolf tucked in there, too! And he’s just starting to wonder if it’s possible that his new friend, Zandra, has a secret of her own, as well…
We Found a Monster is a fun, funny, and fast-paced tale about learning what true friendship is, and respecting the secrets we all have inside.
