Congratulations to Carrie Harris, whose graphic novel ON THE WALL was acquired by One Peace Books. To quote Carrie, “ON THE WALL is the story of Mira Mason, who might just have the world’s stupidest superpower. But when her friends–and her reputation–are threatened by a total creeper, she steps up to the plate. Because that’s what you do when your friends need you. I love stories where superheroes have to deal with real world problems rather than dry-hand-washing megalomaniacs, and that’s what this is.” The official blurb is a little more wordy:
Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who’s the biggest loser of them all?
Mira Mason has the world’s most useless superpower: she can pass through shiny objects. As far as powers go, it’s super-lame. Being a teenager is tough enough without throwing a useless power into the mix. The world is afraid of supes, but it’s silly to be scared of a girl who can phase through a salad fork with the greatest of ease.
All Mira wants to do is put the resident mean girl in her place, get her powers teacher off her back, and convince her crush with the mesmerizing eyes that she exists. But someone with a power like Mira’s is popping out of mirrors to spy on local girls like a total creeper. Mira just wants to be normal, but sometimes a girl and her superpowered friends have to make a stand.
Superheroes meet teen drama in this exciting new graphic novel written by Carrie Harris and drawn by Stipe Kalajžic.
If you love the CW’s slate of superhero shows, snappy quips, cheerleaders getting their comeupance, and the underdog transforming into a swam (wait, am I mixing my metaphors?), you can pre-order ON THE WALL today at Amazon or via your favorite local indie! It’ll be released in June 2017.
