Image Comics is best known for publishing creator-owned monthly titles, but they also have published an impressive library of single-volume graphic novels, and today, we’re pleased to have the chance to tell you about another of them.
Little Girls, by debut creators Nicholas Aflleje and Sarah DeLaine, is the story of two girls who brave cultural differences, defy long-standing traditions, and investigate rumors of monsters lurking in the trees around a walled Ethiopian city.

Image Comics is pleased to announce an eerie, hauntingly original graphic novel: Little Girls, by debut creators Nicholas Aflleje and Sarah DeLaine.
Sam has been an outsider all her life. That might have been the case even if her father hadn’t dragged her all around the globe throughout her childhood, but it sure didn’t help. Every year another school and another word for foreigner. Why would things be any different in Harar, Ethiopia?
Well, for one thing, there’s Lielet—an outspoken and rebellious local girl who has all the necessary makings of a lifelong friend. Then there is the city itself—a subtle crossroad of cultures and traditions woven together through time that make it feel like anything’s possible. And also, there’s something hunting people on the outskirts of town…
As the disappearances start piling up, Sam and Lielet realize they might be the only ones willing to do anything about it. But as these two young friends bravely strike out into the dark on an exciting new adventure, they soon find that the night has teeth.
You can read the rest of the story when the book is released in March 2019.
Little Girls arrives next March from Image Comics.
