Bundled Extra: Secret Acres Announces Debut Graphic Novel From Keren Katz -- The Academic Hour

imageKeren Katz is one of the more interesting talents to appear this decade, with a foot in several artistic expressions. She's had homemade work at various MoCCA Festival as idiosyncratic and fun as anything you might have in your hands as you walk away from that show. A debut graphic novel from Secret Acres seems an auspicious pairing.

Their description: "The Academic Hour charts the romance between Pothel, a disgraced architecture professor, and his student, Liana. Told in a series of surreal, vibrant vignettes, and set in a fantastic, logic-defying college of shifting rooms and secret performance spaces, The Academic Hour affirms how an intense, fledgling relationship can ignite the impulse for storytelling with unbridled, ferocious creative energy." Sounds good to me.

The Academic Hour will be full-color, 176 pages, and cost $19.95. Its ISBN will be 9780996273954.

It will debut at TCAF and be released more generally the week after.
