About the Little Girls graphic novel:

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, Aflleje and DeLaine construct a poignant story of otherness and mystery.

Little Girls will hit comic shops on April 24 and other retailers on April 30. The promotional tour kicks off on April 27.
