First Second is to publish a new graphic novel by Scott Westerfield and Alex Puvilland, Spill Zone in May next year, collecting the web comic (which you can read for free now).
It’s set in the aftermath of an unexplained event that destroyed a small city in upstate New York. It follows a pair of sisters orphaned by the Spill.
The oldest, Addison, is a young adult providing for her little sister by sneaking into the Zone and taking photographs of the strange phenomena there—the ultimate outsider art.
Her little sister, Lexa, hasn’t spoken since the Spill, but has an eerie connection with the doll she carried out from the wreckage of their hometown.
The question is, what really happened that night? And what connection does the doll Vespertine have with the Spill?
But before that, they will be publishing a prequel for Free Comic Book Day, called Spill Night…
