Cecil Castellucci follows her star in a first look at the autobiographical "Girl on Film" from BOOM! Studios
In her autobiographical Girl On Film, Cecil Castellucci tells the story of how a young girl saw Star Wars and dreamt of becoming a filmmaker. So on her journey, she becomes involved in theater.
And then the New York art scene.
And then she plays in a punk band.
And now she’s a critically-acclaimed writer.
I’d be happy to take one of those paths, and I’m certain that Castellucci has a bunch of great stories to tell. BOOM! Studios have provided a pretty substantial first look at the autobiographical graphic novel, so check it out below.
Your First Look at Cecil Castellucci’s Graphic Novel Memoir GIRL ON FILM
The True Story of the Bestselling Comics Creator’s Artistic Journey in November 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 4, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at GIRL ON FILM, an original graphic novel memoir from award-winning young adult novelist and Eisner-nominated comic book writer, Cecil Castellucci, illustrated by artists Vicky Leta, Melissa Duffy, V. Gagnon, and Jon Berg, available in November 2019.
In 1977, Star Wars released in theaters nationwide and changed young Cecil Castellucci’s life forever. From that moment on, she knew that she would one day become a storyteller who brought her own imagination to life. Thus began the evolution of the young starstruck fan into an aspiring theater kid (whose high school friends were Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono), a teenage artiste running wild in ‘80s New York, an indie musician in the Montreal punk scene, and finally the acclaimed author and bestselling comic book writer she is today. GIRL ON FILM brings those memories to life on the page, and then asks us to examine just how time and perspective can color those memories.
Girl on Film will hit comic shops on November 13 and other retailers on November 19.
