What do you do when someone you love dies?
Shelly #1 is the first comic in a series of books for young adult girls. The first issue revolves around the main character, Shelly, and the way she deals with the grief after losing a close friend to leukemia. She drifts in and out of reality, living in her memories of her friend, Caroline, and begins to see monsters within us all, including herself.
The first issue of the series also touches base on bullying, fighting, stepping up and helping a stranger in need, and making the wrong choices. We all make bad decisions in our life, and there are consequences to our actions.
This book is still in production and will be available in the summer of 2017. The Kickstarter information will be posted as soon as it is launched, and a list of stores from which you can purchase the book will be added.
You can find Shelly at the following stores in the Toronto area:
Altered States Comics (Mississauga)
Studiocomix Press (Kitchener)
Gotham Central (Mississauga)
More locations to come.
