Lion Forge has announced it will release Brenna Thummler’s Sheets in August.
In 2017, Breena Thummler adapted Anne of Green Gables into a graphic novel along with writer Mariah Marsden. Now, with Sheets, the creator brings readers a ghost tale a bit different than what you expect.
“There are times we all feel like ghosts, and not just in need of a good wash, but also invisible, different, or like we don’t belong. Sheets grew from this loneliness, and I learned to use storytelling as a way to step out of the dark,” said Brenna Thummler in a press release. “It is a tremendous honor to be able to share this story with readers, and to remind them that there are always ways to feel alive and visible, as long as they don’t stop looking.”
Marjorie Glatt feels like a ghost. A practical thirteen-year-old in charge of the family laundry business, her daily routine features unforgiving customers, unbearable P.E. classes, and the fastidious Mr. Saubertuck who is committed to destroying everything she’s worked for.
Wendell is a ghost. A boy who lost his life much too young, his daily routine features ineffective death therapy, a sheet-dependent identity, and a dangerous need to seek purpose in the forbidden human world.
When their worlds collide, Marjorie is confronted by unexplainable disasters as Wendell transforms Glatt’s Laundry into his midnight playground, appearing as a mere sheet during the day. While Wendell attempts to create a new afterlife for himself, he unknowingly sabotages the life that Marjorie is struggling to maintain.
Be on the lookout for Sheets when it arrives in August 2018.
