Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles series of YA novels has captivated readers with its blend of fairy tale and science-fiction elements. Now, after building a significant fan base for the property, Meyer is expanding her fantasy world with a new graphic novel from Feiwel & Friends. Wires And Nerve teams Meyer with artist Doug Holgate to explore what happens after the end of the best-selling book series, telling the story of the android Iko facing off against rogue wolf-hybrid soldiers that threaten the peace alliance between Earth and Luna. Familiar faces from the novels will be joining Iko in this new graphic novel, and this exclusive excerpt gives readers a rundown of the cast that Meyer has developed over the years and breaks down major events that have led to this new adventure.
These preview pages are heavy on narration, and Doug Holgate’s artwork energizes the text with expressive character work and dramatic composition. He does exceptional work depicting the series’ blend of fantasy and sci-fi in his visuals, and the detail in his line work and design makes him a great fit to realize Meyers’ vision for this world. Fans of The Lunar Chronicles will delight in seeing their favorite characters interpreted in this new medium, but the creative team has also made sure that this new story is accessible to newcomers, providing an easy entryway into this series that will ideally direct them to previous installments. Readers can delve deeper into this story when Wires And Nerve goes on sale on January 31, 2017, but in the meanwhile, here’s a summary to build anticipation.
