THE AIRLESS YEAR out from Dark Horse Comics next week!
From Eisner and Harvey Award-winning editor and writer Adam P. Knave (Amelia Cole, The Once and Future Queen), celebrated Portland-based artist Valentine Barker (Wartechs, Shelby Stone and the Temple of Ta’aora), and letters by Frank Cvetkovic (Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter, Cyberpunk 2077: Trauma Team), comes an all-new LGBTQ+ story for young adults, The Airless Year! It’s a story of self-discovery and empowerment about taking control where you can, and learning to let the rest go.
For Kacee, a queer Black girl in middle school, everything feels like a struggle. When she fails a class as a result of her stress and ends up in summer school, she starts to wonder why she even bothers trying–and ultimately begins to discover her own power to improve the things in her life she can control, and try to let go of what she can’t.
