About the Little Girls graphic novel:Something hunts people on the outskirts of town…Sam and Lielet are two new friends living in Ethiopia. They’re dealing with the kind of problems that all kids have: judgmental social cliques, condescending adults, alienation… and a legendary brain-eating monster straight out of folklore. Sure, it’s not going to be easy, but all they have to do is live through it. Showcasing a quietly unsettling plot and building tension similar to Nick Drnaso’s Sabrina and Adrian Tomine’s Killing and Dying, Aflleje and DeLaine construct a poignant story of otherness and mystery.

Little Girls (ISBN: 9781534310599, Diamond Code: FEB190018) hits comic shops on Wednesday, April 24 and bookstores on Tuesday, April 30. You can pre-order your copy now at your local comic shopAmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-a-MillionIndieBoundIndigo.

For digital readers, Little Girls will be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
