Neil Gaiman’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” Gets Graphic Novel Adaptation
This June, Dark Horse will offer How to Talk to Girls at Parties, a new graphic novel adaptation of the award-winning short story from Neil Gaiman. The adaptation will be done by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá.
The short story was originally published in Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things: Short Fiction and Wonders. How to Talk to Girls at Parties received a 2007 Hugo Award for Best Short Story and won the Locus Award for Best Short Story the same year.
How to Talk to Girls at Parties tells the story of two teenage boys who get a big surprise when they crash a party where the girls are far more than they appear!
Gaiman talked about Moon and Bá’s storytelling in an interview with Publishers Weekly, “They have a storytelling aesthetic where [depicting] body language is everything. The story is all about what’s in the narrators’ heads, so it can be very hard to do that in comics. It’s incredibly enjoyable to write a story and see them make it real.”
How to Talk to Girls at Parties hits stores June 15, 2016. You can [easyazon_link identifier=”1616559551″ locale=”US” tag=”bounintocomi-20″]pre-order from Amazon today[/easyazon_link]!
