PORTLAND, Ore 01/06/2022 — Image/Skybound today revealed a moving new look at Clementine Book One, beginning a new Young Adult graphic novel trilogy set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead, from award-winning writer/artist Tillie Walden (Spinning, On A Sunbeam).
This all-new original graphic novel, available everywhere books are sold June 2022, marks the official launch of Skybound Comet, a new original graphic novel imprint aimed at Young Adult (Ages 12+) and Middle Grade (Ages 8-12) audiences.
It’s a new beginning for Clementine, the star of the bestselling video game franchise TELLTALE’S THE WALKING DEAD, in Clementine Book One, as she’s back on the road, looking to put her traumatic past behind her and forge a new path all her own. But when she comes across an Amish teenager named Amos, the unlikely pair journeys north to an abandoned ski resort in Vermont, where they meet up with a small group of teenagers attempting to build a new, walker-free settlement. As friendship, rivalry, and romance begin to blossom amongst the group, the harsh winter soon reveals that the biggest threat to their survival…might be each other.
Clementine Book One (Diamond Code MAY218587, ISBN: 978-1-5343-2128-1) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play on Wednesday, June 22 and everywhere books are sold on June 28.
