Investigate the Crime of the Century in Bestselling Author Gabby Dunn’s First Graphic Novel in October 2019
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at BURY THE LEDE, a new original graphic novel from New York Times bestselling author Gaby Dunn (Bad with Money, I Hate Everyone But You) and artist Claire Roe (Batgirl and The Birds of Prey), with colors by Miquel Muerto (Strange Skies Over East Berlin), which arrives in stores October 2019.
Inspired by Dunn’s own experiences as a young reporter at The Boston Globe, BURY THE LEDE is a thrilling story about a young reporter’s search for truth leading her down a dark path as she goes toe-to-toe with a potential killer.
Cub reporter Madison Jackson is young, scrappy, and hungry to prove that she deserves her coveted college internship at the premier newspaper in town, The Boston Lede, where she dreams of a career-making headline. So when her police scanner mentions a brutal murder tied to a prominent Boston family, Madison races to the crime scene, looking for the scoop of the century.
What she finds instead is the woman who’ll change her life forever: Dahlia Kennedy, a celebrity socialite covered in blood and the prime suspect in the murder of her husband and child. When Madison is the only person Dahlia will speak to, everything rides on the untested shoulders of this young journalist who sinks ever deeper into the dark, twisted landscape of the city’s hidden circles of crime, corruption, and privilege in order to discover the truth.
