First Look: Wake Up, Percy Gloom! by Cathy Malkasian

Wake Up, Percy Gloom! by Cathy Malkasian

Wake Up, Percy Gloom! pages

Cathy Malkasian is back with Wake Up, Percy Gloom!, the sequel to her award-winning 2007 graphic novel Percy Gloom, which charmed and beguiled readers of all stripes (with the equally amazing Temperance in between). Don't just take our word for it; listen to two of comics' greatest world-builders and creators of lovable iconic characters:

"Cathy Malkasian's Percy Gloom shines a light on a hidden world, using language and ideas that are daringly naked and vulnerable, evoking something real, rare, and relevant. Such exquisite drawing, in the service of such rich ideas, sustained for such a long, lovely dance! The world looked differently to me after I'd finished reading it." – Jim Woodring

"I love this book! Cathy Malkasian's Percy Gloom swirls with echoes of cartoon landscapes from the past and present. You can almost hear Percy Gloom's meek, docile little voice. Her writing is so full of wit and charm that we, like the title character, walk dutifully to the edge and fall in. And like Percy, we are rewarded equally with night terrors and secret treasures." – Jeff Smith

This all-new story, due out in the second half of May, expands Percy's world with new sights, new mysteries, new delights, and new dangers. On our pre-order page we have a 17-page excerpt for you to read and a fun animated "commercial" created by the artist, and we have more previews to come. And for the full Percy package you can buy both books together for a nice discount!
