“Tillie Walden is one of the most extraordinary artists working today, and her storytelling talent shines on every page of this tense, heartbreaking, and epic thriller. Clementine will have you turning pages into the night, heart in your throat, desperately urging the characters to survive. An incredible work.” —Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Skyhunter
"Clementine brings its own distinct voice, style and sensibility to THE WALKING DEAD universe, which is quite a feat on its own. On top of that, it’s an exquisitely drawn story about how to survive trauma and find strength in ourselves and others." —Kelly Sue DeConnick, Pretty Deadly, Captain Marvel
LOS ANGELES 03/07/2022 — Today Image/Skybound unveiled a poignant new look at Clementine Book One, the new Young Adult graphic novel from award-winning writer/artist Tillie Walden (Spinning, On A Sunbeam) that begins a trilogy set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead.
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, but sure to captivate readers of all ages.
It’s a new beginning for Clementine, the star of the bestselling The Walking Dead video games, 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.
