(W) Nicholas Aflleje (A/CA) Sarah DeLaine
Something hunts people on the outskirts of town...

Sam and Lielet are two new friends living in Ethiopia. They're dealing with the kind of problems that all kids have: judgmental social cliques, condescending adults, alienation... and a legendary brain-eating monster straight out of folklore. Sure, it's not going to be easy, but all they have to do is live through it.

Showcasing a quietly unsettling plot and building tension similar to NICK DRNASO's Sabrina and ADRIAN TOMINE's Killing and Dying, debut creative team NICHOLAS AFLLEJE and SARAH DeLAINE construct a poignant story of otherness and mystery.

JLed's anthropomorphic creature work has been a hallmark of his design, and his take on DC characters is a delightful mix of literalism and playfulness.
