Fantagraphics Books' Jacq Cohen sent out a press release this morning announcing they had acquired the publishing rights to Liz Suburbia's webcomic Sacred Heart. They will publish it as a one-shot graphic novel in Summer 2015.
This will be Suburbia's first graphic novel with the publisher and may be the first book in that format she's done, period. Suburbia lives in Nevada, and is best known for her series Cyanide Milkshake. In the release, Fantagraphics Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds calls the work reminiscent of coming-of-age comics like that portion of Jaime Hernandez's Locas series and Charles Burns' Black Hole.
