BOOM! Studios today announced GIRL ON FILM, a new original graphic novel memoir from award-winning young adult novelist and Eisner-nominated comic book writer, Cecil Castellucci, illustrated by artists Vicky Leta, Jon Berg, V. Gagnon, and Melissa Duffy, and based on the true story of her own free-spirited coming-of-age as a young, independent creative who fell in love with the art of telling stories, available in stores November 2019.
In 1977, Star Wars released in theaters nationwide and changed young Christine Castellucci’s life forever. From that moment on, she knew that she would one day become an artist and storyteller who brought her own imagination to life. Thus began the evolution of the young starstruck Christine into an aspiring theater kid who was best friends with Chaz Bono, teenage artiste running wild in ‘80s New York, indie musician in the Toronto punk scene, and finally the acclaimed author and bestselling comic book writer she is today, Cecil Castellucci. Along the way, she found that even though nothing ever went according to plan, everything happened the way it should have.
Chronicling the life of award-winning young adult novelist and Eisner-nominated comics scribe Cecil Castellucci, GIRL ON FILM follows a passionate aspiring artist from the youngest age through adulthood to examine the arduous pursuit of making art, while exploring the act of memory and how it reshapes what we think we truly know about ourselves.
