If you find yourself having difficulty talking to girls at parties fear not! In June 2016, Dark Horse will offer a graphic novel adaptation of How to Talk to Girls at Parties. The original work is an award-winning Neil Gaiman short story and the work is getting the graphic novel treatment by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá. Originally published in Gaiman’s Fragile Things: Short Fiction and Wonders, “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” quickly became a celebrated work, receiving a nomination for a 2007 Hugo Award for Best Short Story and winning the Locus Award for Best Short Story the same year.
“They have a storytelling aesthetic where [depicting] body language is everything. The story is all about what’s in the narrators’ heads, so it can be very hard to do that in comics. It’s incredibly enjoyable to write a story and see them make it real,” said Neil Gaiman in an exclusive interview with Publishers Weekly.
In How to Talk to Girls at Parties, two teenage boys are in for a tremendous shock when they crash a party where the girls are far more than they appear! How to Talk to Girls at Parties is in stores June 15, 2016. Full press release below.
