Nightlights


Nightlights
By Lorena Alvarez
NoBrow, 2016. Comics, 54 p.
Sandy likes to draw, and drawing helps her escape into the world of imagination. One day she meets a girl, Morfie, who admires her artwork. That night, Morfie haunts Sandy's dreams as a hungry specter who wants to eat the images Sandy creates with her mind. The lines between reality and fantasy are stretched until they become dangerously thin.

This is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel printed in eye-popping color. It is also slightly creepy which, I think, will increase its appeal to the target audience.  It ends on a cliffhanger, so I expect (and hope) we will be seeing a sequel soon.
