[From the Dark Horse Press Release]
This fall, Ethan Young, the acclaimed writer and artist of Nanjing: The Burning City, brings his immense talent to a sci-fi epic full of heart, humor, and heroism in 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.
Ethan Young won a 2007 Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Graphic Novel for Tails.
