We’re stupidly excited to announce that rising star Rachael Smith will be publishing a comic with Great Beast Comics in Spring 2014.
House Party will be a 92 page graphic novel where three lost 20-somethings are feeling disillusioned after being shoved into the real world since feeling like superstars at university. In an attempt to get their carefree composure and happiness back they throw a massive house party, just like they used to. Instead of reconnecting them with their younger selves, however, things go a little differently and the three of them must decide how to move forward in lives that none of them really asked for.
Although Rachael is still relatively new to the world of comics her output has been prolific to say the least. In 2013 she released The Way We Write and I Am Fire (both available from her Etsy store) and has been published through David Lloyd’s digital publishing company Aces Weekly. I Am Fire was even selected as one of Forbidden Planet’s best comics of 2013, so future critical acclaim surely awaits. If you like the comics of John Allison, Chynna Clugston Flores and even our own Marc Ellerby then you’ll find a lot to love from Rachael’s smart cartooning.
Like all other Great Beast titles you’ll be able to purchase House Party both in print and on digital platforms on the same day. We’ll have more information on House Party in the coming months.
