The Late Child and Other Animals
by Marguerite Van Cook and James Romberger

180-page color 8" x 10" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-789-5

Ships in: November 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Hetty survives the bombing of Portsmouth by the Nazis in World War II, only to learn that her soldier husband — with whom she was in the process of adopting a young daughter — has been killed on the way back home from North Africa. She must then complete the adoption alone. A decade later, she gives birth to a bastard daughter, Marguerite. Now Hetty must go before a tribunal to prove that she is a fit mother — or possibly lose both her children. From there, The Late Child and Other Animals tells the story of little Marguerite's childhood in the recovering British naval port and the rural beauty of the Isle of Wight and in Normandy, France. The journeys and struggles over decades of this mother and daughter are linked in five episodes that veer between lyricism, wry wit, and harrowing suspense.

The Late Child and Other Animals is an original graphic novel, a generational autobiography written by legendary punk diva and award-winning poet Marguerite Van Cook, adapted by artist James Romberger, the creator of the Eisner-nominated Post York. The team of Romberger and Van Cook is also responsible for the adaptation and art of 7 Miles a Second, their critically acclaimed graphic memoir collaboration with the late multimedia artist and AIDS activist, David Wojnarowicz.

Our next Don Rosa Library book is here, filled with more richly dense and action-packed stories featuring our favorite duck family!

And—what's this?—the first box set collecting volumes 1 and 2 of the Don Rosa Library is at our office as well?

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful and The Don Rosa Library Vols. 1-2 Gift Box Set are due to hit store shelves in just a few measly weeks, so hold on tight! We've got plenty of previews in store for you until then.
