Project #3: Mary Shelley’s School for Monsters: Origins

What it’s about
Mary Shelley’s School for Monsters: Origins is a 28-page YA/Middle Grade horror mystery comic. Origins can be read as a stand-alone comic, but it also functions as the prologue for the larger hardcover graphic novel, Mary Shelley’s School for Monsters: La Llorona in the Machine available to pre-order in 2023. Young Mary Shelley encounters an occult scientist, Dr. M, and a living book of spells, Necro, who split her into two versions of herself—one the literary giant who goes on to write Frankenstein, and the other, a supernatural girl, Shel, who spends her immortality fighting evil humans who exploit monsters. Writer Jessica Maison (Plastic Girl, Pistil, Cthulhu is Hard to Spell, and Nightmare Theater anthologies) and artist Anna Wieszczyk (Godkiller, Home, Interesting Drug & Lucid, Popgun vol. 4, and Spera anthologies) have teamed up to bring you an alternate Mary Shelley story that will leave you spellbound. Letterer and designer, Joel Rodriguez (The Dusk Country Chronicles, Stake) completes the team.
