TITLE OF THE WEEK: Minus, by Lisa Naffziger!
Yup, it’s Friday. And you know what that means! A brand new title from Iron Circus Comics!
Scheduled to debut in 2018-19, Minus is the story of Beck Beveroth, the sheltered, home-schooled daughter of the over-protective Gil. Raised in the isolation of her father’s remote homestead, Beck’s on the edge of independence for the first time ever; she’s been accepted for enrollment at an out-of-state college! Excited and apprehensive, she decides to road-trip with Dad to campus move-in day… but their plans go violently off-course when Beck hears gunfire while in the restroom at a gas station pit-stop.
When she finally emerges from hiding, her father and their car are gone… and she’s the only person left alive.
Minus is a YA-and-up adventure and mystery story unlike anything Iron Circus has ever published before. I’m really looking forward to it, and I hope you are too.
