GIRL ON FILM Is Cecil Castellucci's Graphic Novel Memoir and It's Coming This November

Cecil Castellucci is an award-winning YA novelist and an Eisner-nominated comic book writer. Now, she’s sharing her story through an original graphic novel memoir being published by BOOM! Studios. Castellucci is writing the memoir and working with a team of artists consisting of Jon Berg, Melissa Duffy, V. Gagnon, and Vicky Leta to give fans Girl on Film.

In 1977, Star Wars released in theaters nationwide and changed young Cecil Castellucci’s life forever. From that moment on, she knew that she would one day become a storyteller who brought her own imagination to life. Thus began the evolution of the young starstruck fan into an aspiring theater kid (whose high school friends were Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono), a teenage artiste running wild in ‘80s New York, an indie musician in the Montreal punk scene, and finally the acclaimed author and bestselling comic book writer she is today. GIRL ON FILM brings those memories to life on the page, and then asks us to examine just how time and perspective can color those memories.

Girl on Film will be published through the Archaia imprint, and you’ll be able to get your copy on November 13 at your local comic shop. If you want to buy it through bookstores and other areas, you’ll have to wait until November 19. Take a look a the graphic novel memoir below.
