The first ever Sweet Valley High original graphic novel is coming our way in May 2019!
Debuting in 1983 from writer Francine Pascal, my sister’s room was littered with most of the 181 stories in the series following the lives of Brittany and Cynthia Daniel. Now in comic book for, writer Katy Rex and artist Devaki Neogi will continue their tales.
The usually impulsive and rash Jessica develops a crush on her new Shakespeare teacher, motivating her to model herself on her regimented and sincere sister Elizabeth. Will people start mixing the two girls up? Will Jess fall back on her ways only for Liz to straighten everything out?
For writer Katy Rex, Sweet Valley High is a lifelong love, “I have been an absolute bookworm my whole life and I transitioned from Sweet Valley Twins to Sweet Valley High, and in a lot of ways I grew up alongside Jessica and Elizabeth. They’re timeless characters, so much so that it’s practically intuitive to see how they would feel and act in any era. My lifelong experience with the books really allowed me to nail the voices and the feeling of the series. This is absolutely classic Sweet Valley and it’s equally absolutely 2019.”
Sweet Valley High: Academic All-Star will be 136-page in length and have a $14.99 cover price.
