Description

Anne of Green Gables with a twist: in this follow-up to Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy and The Secret Garden on 81st Street, this full-color graphic novel moves Anne Shirley to modern-day West Philadelphia, where where she finds new friends, new rivals, and a new family.

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert decide to foster a teenage girl for the first time, their lives are changed forever. Their redheaded foster daughter, Anne Shirley, is in search of an exciting life and has decided that West Philly is where she's going to find it. Armed with a big personality and unstoppable creativity, Anne takes her new home by storm as she joins the robotics club, makes new friends in Diana and Gilbert, experiences first love, and turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. But as Anne starts to get comfortable, she discovers one thing she wasn't looking for: a family.

This title will be simultaneously available in hardcover.

About this Author

Ivy Noelle Weir is a writer of comics and prose. She is the co-creator of the Dwayne McDuffie Award-winning graphic novel Archival Quality (Oni Press), the author of The Secret Garden on 81st Street, and her writing has appeared in anthologies such as Princeless: Girls Rock (Action Lab Entertainment) and Dead Beats (A Wave Blue World). She lives in the greater Boston area with her husband and their two tiny, weird dogs.

When not crafting fictional worlds and surfing Pinterest, Myisha Haynes works full-time as a games artist in San Francisco. She earned an MFA in Visual Development at the Academy of Art University and a BA in English at UC Santa Barbara (but is still a pretty questionable speller). She loves fall and winter but is also from California, and therefore has no idea what a real winter looks like. Besides her modern fantasy webcomic, The Substitutes, her work can also be seen in the award-winning Elements Anthology: Fire, Rolled & Told, Power & Magic 2, and Marvel's Gwenpool.
