Tillie Walden’s Eisner Award-nominated Clementine Book One marked the first time a woman wrote a Walking Dead comic — and proved to be a gateway drug for budding fans of the zombie-laden franchise while thrilling veteran devotees. Now, we’ve got the first official trailer for the follow-up — Clementine Book Two! Check it out below, after these official deets on this Skybound Comet release…
Today Skybound Comet unveiled a brand-new trailer Clementine Book Two, the hugely anticipated second installment of the trilogy from award-winning writer/artist & Vermont’s Cartoonist Laureate Tillie Walden (Spinning, On A Sunbeam). Set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead and following the 2023 Eisner Award-nominated Clementine Book One, Book Two will be released in October 2023.
The new trailer showcases Clementine, Ricca, and Olivia, who after a narrow escape may have found a new home on a remote island off the coast of Canada with new friends and a new mentor. Is this what a normal life looks like? Is it safe to fall in love? But when the island’s safety is questioned and a secret is revealed, Clementine has a choice: keep running and save herself–or fight and lose it all!
The upcoming original graphic novel is a tentpole release for Skybound Comet, the acclaimed original graphic novel imprint aimed at Young Adult (Ages 12+) and Middle Grade (Ages 8-12) audiences, but sure to captivate readers of all ages.
