SOMETHING HUNTS PEOPLE ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN IN... LITTLE GIRLS

LITTLE GIRLS image comics

Image Comics is pleased to announce an eerie, hauntingly original graphic novel, LITTLE GIRLS, by debut creators Nicholas Aflleje and Sarah DeLaine, set to hit shelves in March 2019.

In LITTLE GIRLS, readers meet Sam, who has been an outsider all her life. That might have been the case even if her father hadn’t dragged her all around the globe, but it sure didn’t help. Every year, another school and another word for foreigner. Why would things be any different in Harar, Ethiopia? Well, for one thing, there’s Lielet—an outspoken and rebellious local girl who has all the makings of a lifelong friend. Then there is the city itself—a crossroad of cultures and traditions woven together through time that make it feel like anything’s possible. Also, there’s something hunting people on the outskirts of town…

"At their age, Sam and Lielet are confronted with so many scary, new things that they don't have to stop and think about being brave, because they're brave all the time, even when facing down literal monsters together," said Aflleje.

"I think most people can relate to just not fitting in at some point in their lives, like you'll never meet someone you truly get along with," DeLaine added. "But if you somehow inexplicably do, you might suddenly realize you really want to make sure that person isn't eaten."

As the disappearances start piling up, Sam and Lielet decide they might be the only ones willing to do anything about it. But as these two young friends bravely strike out into the dark on an exciting new adventure, they soon find that the night has teeth.

LITTLE GIRLS, OGN (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1059-9) hits comics shops on Wednesday, March 26th and bookstores on Tuesday April 2nd. It can be pre-ordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
