In Desolina Fletcher’s comic, Ghost Year, Kenny’s mother, Laura, has vanished leaving him anxious and unsettled. Laura’s partner Luther is there to help Kenny, but something strange is bubbling beneath the surface. Kenny’s escape from all of this might be Eva, an icy, unreachable girl at a nearby Catholic prep school, with something slightly off about her.
The prelude to a larger story, Ghost Year sets an amazing mood through Desolina’s use of color, cartooning and dialogue that suggests more secrets than the reader might know!
