BOOM! Studios has announced a new original graphic novel from Gabby Rivera, Celia Moscote, and James Fenner. Juliet Takes a Breath arrives in November 2020.
Juliet Milagros Palante is leaving the Bronx and headed to Portland, Oregon. She just came out to her family and isn’t sure if her mom will ever speak to her again.
But don’t worry, Juliet has something kinda resembling a plan that’ll help her figure out what it means to be Puerto Rican, lesbian and out. See, she’s going to intern with Harlowe Brisbane – her favorite feminist author, someone whose work on feminism, self-love and lots of other things will help Juliet find her ever elusive epiphany.
There’s just one problem – Harlowe’s white, not from the Bronx and doesn’t have all the answers. Okay, maybe that’s more than one problem, but Juliet never said it was a perfect plan…
“So excited to be working with BOOM! studios on the JULIET TAKES A BREATH graphic novel. We’re blasting new energy into the story and lush colors all over the page,” said writer Gabby Rivera in a press release from BOOM! Studios. “Get ready for a Juliet Milagros Palante that’s gayer, chubbier, and more confident than ever before.”
As stated above, Juliet Takes a Breath is scheduled to arrive in November 2020.
