Praise For…


“Brame’s bold and arresting use of color and shading lends an unnerving atmosphere to the setting, while his attention to facial expressions injects the panels with emotion. This mostly faithful adaptation honors Okorafor’s voice and paints a potent portrait of Nigeria and its folklore.”

— Publishers Weekly

“This exploration of trauma and family history through the body is perfectly adapted to the graphic medium.”
