A new original graphic novel from BOOM! Studios will capture a woman’s exploration as she navigates through pain and loss in the upcoming, Waves.

In a story that will, no doubt, tug at your heartstrings, a young woman and her wife finally announce their pregnancy, only to have one of the most-important times in their lives stripped away in pure heartbreak. While understandably drowning in sorrow, the young couple start on a journey to learn how to live and love again.

The book is penned by Ingrid Chabbert, in her graphic novel debut, with art by Carole Maurel. Chabbert has authored almost 60 children’s books, while Maurel most-recently created the critically-acclaimed book, Luisa: Now and Then.
