I’m delighted to finally be able to officially announce my newest graphic novel, SOUPY LEAVES HOME which will be coming out on Dark Horse Comics in April 2017. The story is of a girl in 1932 who runs away from a bad home situation and rides the rails with the hoboes. The art is by Jose Pimienta. More details in the exclusive over at Publisher’s Weekly.
