BERGER BOOKS AND DARK HORSE PRESENT “THE SUNNY-LUNA TRAVELING ORACLE”
The newest offering from legendary editor Karen Berger’s Berger Books at Dark Horse Comics comes from acclaimed illustrator and storyteller Warren Pleece (Incognegro, Hellraiser), presenting readers a dystopian eco-noir thriller about power, escape, creation, and the mark we leave on the world. The 128-page (6.625” x 9”) science fiction mystery graphic novel The Sunny-Luna Travelling Oracle arrives in April of 2024.
“Warren Pleece is a master storyteller,” said editor Karen Berger. “His coming-of-age tale set in dark and daunting days, speaks to censorship, misinformation, and the emotional power of books. It will surely resonate with adults and young adult readers Alike.”
Warren Pleece said: “My love of the natural world and learning about the Wood Wide Web grafted to my other permanent obsession with the long dramatic shadows cast by classic film noir, finally led me to this rip-snorting eco-thriller story with more than a touch of magic.”
About The Sunny-Luna Travelling Oracle:
In the devastated dust bowl of what once was America, Esta is a lonely, restless and bright teenager with only the mysterious town librarian and her beloved books to rely on. So when the dazzling Sunny Luna Travelling Oracle arrives in her shell of a town, it seems like it could be the answer to her unspoken prayers– especially when the proprietors themselves take an interest in Esta. But Sunny and Luna are not what they appear–and neither is their show. Esta and her precious books are about to become the key to a strange, secret magic that may hold the last hope for nature in this devastated America–unless Sunny and Luna destroy it first.
The Sunny-Luna Travelling Oracle (128 pages, 6.25” x 9”) original graphic novel will be on sale in bookstores on August 13, 2024 and in comic shops on August 14, 2024. Pre-order your copy from your local comic book shop, bookstore, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble for $24.99.
