We just got in super-advanced finished copies of Farel Dalrymple’s upcoming graphic novel, The Wrenchies. (They are even earlier than we thought they would appear, so this is like a special treat.)
You guys, this book is going to be crazy and awesome.
(These are not kids I would like to meet in the course of my everyday life.)
And the spine. This book is very large, you guys.
Lots of covers all lined up! This will make a substantial contribution to your bookshelf inches. Also: swords!
The inside front cover.
SHERWOOD AND ORSON SHOULD NEVER HAVE GONE INTO THAT CAVE.
(That’s got to be a good lead-in for any book, right?)
And, insides! This book is printed on a matte stock, and Farel’s art looks just fantastic.
More insides, this time with another one of our main characters, Hollis.
(Also, kids playing with knives, which we only approve of fictionally.)
Villains! Got to love them.
The inside back cover, with copyright information! Author bio! Back flap! All sorts of delightful things.
And the back cover.
I’m just going to end with a close-up on this quote, because it’s pretty fantastic. I’d like this quote on all the books we publish, please.
The Wrenchies comes out in September; it’ll debut at SPX. We can’t wait!
