BOOM! Studios has announced Cookie Kalkair and Ophélie Damblé are teaming for Guerilla Green, an original graphic novel about a city-dweller who becomes involved in the guerilla gardening movement.
This city gal’s putting the guerillas’ motto into action by reviving the true spirit of her city and showing everyone the true nature of their world! Explore the real world of the guerilla gardening movement that teaches us the principles of making our cities more beautiful and sustainable places, one plant at a time.
Cookie Kalkair is a Barcelona based French graphic novel author who, since his first release in 2016, has been writing on the frontier between documentary comic books and lifestyle blogging. His work explores a multitude of social topics for a mainstream audience in an open-minded and educational way. His first book The Last 9 Months, accompanies soon-to-be dads through the process of pregnancy, and not long after, its spiritual sequel, Pénis de Table, returns to Cookie’s group of male friends as they deepdive into each others’ sexual lives. His most recent work “Guerilla Green”, co-written with eco-activist Ophélie Damblé, aims at educating city folk about the power of the green rebellion.
“While working with Ophélie for more than a year on this book, she has shown me that my city deserves more than just endless layers of concrete and buildings,” said Kalkair in a press release from BOOM! Studios. “More plants and more life! And that the Green Revolution is accessible to ANYONE— even to a comic book geek like me.”
Guerilla Green is scheduled to arrive in April 2021.
