‘Unearthed: A Jessica Cruz Story’ will arrive in September from DC Comics.
DC has revealed more details and some preview pages from the upcoming Unearthed: A Jessica Cruz Story, part of their graphic novel line aimed at young adults.
The story will retell the origin of Cruz as she deals with xenophobia in her hometown, Coast City. The graphic novel is written by Lilliam Rivera (Never Look Back) and drawn by illustrator Steph C.
“I’ve always been fascinated by origin stories and I’m so glad I got to write one for Green Lantern’s Latinx superhero, Jessica Cruz. Unearthed is a story of an everyday high school teenager who strives to make her parents proud. It’s also a story about immigration and how Jessica navigates debilitating anxiety while trying to keep her family together,” said Rivera. “Mexican artist Steph C.’s illustrations not only beautifully capture this struggle; she’s created stunning otherworldly realms that will leave readers breathless.
