Preview: ‘Goldie Vance: Larceny in La La Land’
We haven’t done the Saturday morning comics thing for a while, but an old favorite is back and we’re happy to provide an advance look. There’s a new Goldie Vance graphic novel out next week with a new creative team of writer Jackie Ball (Welcome to Wanderland) and Mollie Rose (Steven Universe) replacing Hope Larson and Brittney Williams, who have moved on to other things. Here’s the 411:
Thanks to a serendipitous combination of events, Goldie, Diane, and Cheryl find themselves jetsetting to sunny Los Angeles! While Cheryl pursues her space dreams at JPL, and Diane continues her work as a remote scout for a music label, Goldie spends her days getting lost in the haze of old Hollywood, and becoming friends with a silent film star whose golden days are long behind her. But when her new friend is framed for stealing, Goldie must dive deep into the secret history of Tinsel Town to get to the bottom of it all! Acclaimed writer Jackie Ball (Welcome to Wanderland) and Mollie Rose (Steven Universe) present the return of everyone’s favorite young detective in an all new mystery with all the glitz, glamor and giant secrets you’d expect from Goldie!
The book will be out on August 26. Enjoy!
