Ethan Young Launches Young Adult Sci Fi Epic with 'Bridget Lee'
I'm afraid if I mention that post-apocalyptic young adult sci fi with female protagonists has been something of a trend lately, my tone will sound mocking or dismissive. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. I would always rather see another female-led apocalyptic saga than another male-led superhero saga. And as sci fi comics go, The Battles of Bridget Lee: Invasion of Farfall looks particularly exciting. The Battles of Bridget Lee is a new series of young adult graphic novels by Ethan Young, and Invasion of Farfall, the first installment, is due out September 21, 2016. Young is the writer and artist behind last year's acclaimed nonfiction graphic novel Nanjing: The Burning City, and previously won a 2007 Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Graphic Novel for Tails, a semi-autobiographical fantasy comic.
