Ethan Young Creating Young Adult Graphic Novel Series


Young adult readers want more than stories about wizards or repressed youths. Sometimes they want stories about characters in space, which is why Ethan Young is teaming up with Dark Horse to publish The Battles of Bridget Lee. The Battles of Bridget Lee will take readers on a multivolume journey through space as it follows the world’s next heroine to great heights.

There is no longer a generation that remembers a time before the Marauders invaded Earth. The remaining human outposts have been quiet since they fought back the alien aggressors, but there are stirrings of another attack. Bridget Lee, an ex–combat medic now residing at the outpost Farfall, may be the world’s last hope. But Bridget will need to overcome her own fears before she can save her people. Her legend begins here.

The Battles of Bridget Lee Volume 1: Invasion of Farfall (978-1-50670-012-0) is in stores September 21, 2016. Full press release below.
