The debut original graphic novel from rising stars Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Holograms, Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps) and Meredith McClaren (Hinges), Heart in a Box explores what happens if you could actually wish away a broken heart, and the lengths one might go to in order to reassemble it.
Thought-provoking, masterfully illustrated, and genre-shattering, Heart in a Box proves that a broken heart isn’t the end of the world—it’s just the beginning of the journey.
