BOOK SIGNING w/MUSIC!!! SARAH DELAINE & NICHOLAS AFLLEJE BRING “LITTLE GIRLS” TO H.A.H.T.F.

May 02, 2019 By: Karla Southern Category: Uncategorized

“LITTLE GIRLS” BOOK SIGNING
MUSIC by PETROV and PULLOVER
TUESDAY, MAY 7TH ∙ 6PM-9PM

In celebration of Little Girls hitting shelves, debut creators Nicholas Aflleje and Sarah DeLaine have embarked on a 12 city national book tour through May—with events featuring live band performances—to promote the release of this haunting new standalone graphic novel from Image Comics.

Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find is excited to host this new creative on Tuesday, May 7th team along with great live music from local bands Petrov and Pullover! Join us for an evening of comics and music!

BOOK SUMMARY: Something hunts people on the outskirts of town… Sam and Lielet are two new friends living in Ethiopia. They’re dealing with the kind of problems that all kids have: judgmental social
cliques, condescending adults, alienation… and a legendary brain-eating monster straight out of folklore. Sure, it’s not going to be easy, but all they have to do is live through it. Showcasing a quietly
unsettling plot and building tension similar to NICK DRNASO’s Sabrina and ADRIAN TOMINE’s Killing and Dying, debut creative team NICHOLAS AFLLEJE and SARAH DeLAINE construct a
poignant story of otherness and mystery.

“I didn’t grow up reading comics. I didn’t discover comics really until I was eighteen, but then I fell so hard for comics… I just didn’t realize that comics could be for me. I thought it was more of a strictly
male power fantasy, and I have nothing against that, but I just didn’t think that someone like me could make comics for people like me and like other people, too… My inspirations were people like Beatrix
Potter and the big worlds that people like Moebius would make… I’m always interested in making it feel like a big, real, lived in world.”–Sarah DeLaine
