Some of you might be aware of Kelly Thompson and Meredith McClaren’s upcoming September release of Heart in a Box, but did you know you could get a free glimpse of the duo’s original graphic novel? Dark Horse Digital will serialize Heart in a Box, as a special advance look. Over the next six weeks, they will make seven chapters available, and guess what? You can check out the first two chapters now. The first chapter is free for all users, and all subsequent chapters will be priced at an affordable $0.99.
Dark Horse Editor Brendan Wright spoke about the digital release:
We couldn’t wait to share Heart in a Box with readers, so we’re very excited to get it out early through our digital platform. Kelly and Meredith have created something truly special, and after fans read it digitally, they’re definitely going to want to have a copy for their shelf.
For those of you who don’t know what Heart in a Box is all about, the story follows main character Emma. In a moment of post-heartbreak weakness, she wishes her heart away, and a mysterious stranger—who may or may not be totally evil—obliges. But what Emma thought would solve all of her problems, actually makes things worse as she suffers with feeling empty. When Emma learns that her heart can be regained piece by piece, she takes the strange bargain. But will the cost of her heart be her soul? Sounds pretty scary to me! Looks like I’ll be signing up for Dark Horse Digital!
