Dark Horse Comics has only just announced that they are publishing Margaret Atwood‘s first comic book, Angel Catbird.
Well, now they are publishing another, a contribution to The Secret Life Of Geek Girls, recently successfully Kickstartered.
The Secret Loves of Geek Girls anthology is written for the geek girl who wants information and stories on dating and love. It’s a compilation of tales told from both sides of the tables: from the fans who love video games, comic books, and sci-fi, and those that work behind the scenes: creators, and industry insiders.
The Secret Loves of Geek Girls collects successes as well as embarrassments, examines the fandoms that we ship, and reassures us that no matter what we’re going through or have gone through, we are never alone.
The Mary Sue has the announcement.
The Secret Loves of Geek Girls will be available via Dark Horse in comic stores and bookstores October 2016.
