Discover the Acclaimed Author’s Bestselling Coming-of-Age Story as a Graphic Novel in November 2020
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 20, 2020) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a brand new look at graphic novel JULIET TAKES A BREATH. Critically-acclaimed writer Gabby Rivera (b.b. free) adapts her bestselling novel alongside artist Celia Moscote and colorist James Fenner in an unforgettable queer coming-of-age story exploring race, identity, and what it means to be true to your amazing self, even when the rest of the world doesn’t understand, available in November 2020.
Juliet Milagros Palante is leaving the Bronx and headed to Portland, Oregon. She just came out to her family and isn’t sure if her mom will ever speak to her again. But don’t worry, Juliet has something kinda resembling a plan that’ll help her figure out what it means to be Puerto Rican, lesbian, and out. See, she’s going to intern with Harlowe Brisbane—her favorite author, whose latest book on feminism and finding power in your body has Juliet ready to stomp the patriarchy and fall forever in love with herself.
There’s just one problem—Harlowe’s clueless, not from the Bronx, and doesn’t have the answers. Okay, maybe that’s more than one problem but Juliet never said it was a perfect plan…
