BOOM! Studios Announces THE SACRIFICE OF DARKNESS Virtual Book Tour

“The glowing hope within this tale will be welcome to readers in dark times.”- Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“Deeply romantic sf/fairy tale hybrid exploring class issues, identity, and survivor’s guilt.” – Library Journal Starred Review

BOOM! Studios today announced THE SACRIFICE OF DARKNESS Virtual Book Tour, in support of the original graphic novel from New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay, writer Tracy Lynne Oliver, artist Rebecca Kirby, and colorist James Fenner, adapting Gay’s New York Times bestselling short story “We Are the Sacrifice of Darkness” into a full-length graphic novel and expanding the short story about a tragic event that forever bathes the world in darkness, available in October 2020.

Follow a couple’s powerful journey through this new landscape as they discover love, family, and the true light in a world seemingly robbed of any. As they challenge the world’s notions of identity, guilt, and survival, they find that no matter the darkness, there remain sources of hope that can pierce the veil.

THE SACRIFICE OF DARKNESS Book Tour includes multiple virtual events from October 27th through December 15th to celebrate the release of the graphic novel with Roxane Gay, Tracy Lynne Oliver, and Rebecca Kirby.
