Comixology Originals will release The Ghost of Wreckers Cove, a “wildly imaginative” Middle Grade graphic novel that blends historical fiction and magical realism, on their platform this Tuesday. The new story is by Liniers (The Big Wet Balloon, Good Night, Planet, Written and Drawn by Henrietta), his frequent collaborator Angelica del Campo, colorist Christian Argiz and editor John Lind.
The new graphic novel about two young girls on the coast of Maine will feature ghosts, pirates, stolen treasure, seashells, swimming and a young lighthouse keeper.
“Liniers’ work is so profoundly beautiful, spirited, and touching,” Bryce Gold, Comixology Originals Lead, said in the press release. “It is an honor to bring The Ghost of Wreckers Cove to English language audiences worldwide for the first time and my hope that readers of all ages, alive, spectral, or otherwise, enjoy it.”
Here’s the description from Comixology Originals:
To escape the city for the summer, sisters Cristina and Martha head to the coast of Maine where their father has rented a house for them near a famous, but non-working, lighthouse. While their father works, the girls explore and make friends with a young red headed girl. As the girl communicates with them, they soon suspect she is not of this time. They begin to investigate at the local library, meet with a local historian, and head to the maritime museum where they discover more about the girl—her fame and disappearance—and unravel the mystery of the lighthouse.
