Nightmare in Savannah | Exclusive Preview
Today we’re very psyched to bring you an early preview of Nightmare in Savannah, by writer Lela Gwenn, artist Rowan Maccoll, and letterer Micah Myers, which will be published by Mad Cave’s YA imprint, Maverick, in September.
Here’s the quick synopsis:
This graphic novel tells a story about Alexa moving to Savannah to get away from her horrible past. Her past has caused her terrible hardship as her parent’s criminal acts quickly makes her an outcast. Thankfully Fae, Chloe, & Skye aren’t high on the social ladder and give Alexa a group to feel comfortable in. As she finally settles in with her new friendships, she realizes there is something dark and mysterious sinking beneath the cracks of Savannah’s gothic streets. The girls discover that they might not be fully human after all, as an ancient fay power flows through their veins.
If you’re curious about Mad Cave, they will be having a Showcase on Twitch this weekend that will include interviews with the creators of Nightmare in Savannah, as well as other creators and details on its annual Talent Search.
Here’s our preview of Nightmare in Savannah. Enjoy!
