Julia Gfrörer's Black Is the Color is sure to be one of the most talked-about graphic novel debuts of the season, having already garnered raves in its serialized webcomic form. With spare storytelling, dry, dark humor, and detailed, spidery ink lines, this swoon-worthy tale of sailors and mermaids, love and death lingers in the mind long after the last page is read.

Black Is the Color will be ready to join our other recent acclaimed sea-faring debuts Blacklung and Set to Sea on your bookshelves in about 2 months; an excerpt and pre-order details can be found right here.
