CCS Alumni Sophie Goldstein releases coming-of-age fantasy graphic novel: An Embarrassment of Witches
An Embarrassment of Witches by Sophie Goldstein ′13 and Jenn Jordan released on March 3 from Top Shelf Comix. This coming-of-age tale is set in an urban fantasy world full of animal familiars, enchanted plants, and spell-casting. The story explores the mundane horrors of breakups, job searches, and post-graduate existential angst.
“The blobby, busy artwork, drenched in candy colors, is packed with visual jokes: a traffic jam with dragons and pumpkin carriages, mall stores named Fae Jewelers and Taco Spell, a corporate office that turns into an M.C. Escher maze.”
