The fugitive romance continues between Karina, a day-walking vampire, and Nick, a nocturnal mortal. Living out their storybook fantasy in Paris by day and hunting down criminals by night to feed Karina's hunger, Nick's moral line continues to be pushed to the limit. When Karina discovers her latest prey holds a dark criminal secret, it will put their immortal love-pact to the test when they attempt to rescue an innocent girl from a deadly underworld plot. Told by Karina in poetic verse, we are taken on a-day-in-the-life of a forbidden love that goes from romance to horror to pulp-crime thriller—best read at bedtime!

This hardcover graphic novella is rendered with crisp line art and lush digital watercolor, and also contains a new GirlFIEND pin-up gallery.

"We wanted to magnify the idea of the protagonists living out their "fairytale fantasy" in Paris by depicting the narrative itself in literal fairytale storybook verse," Arnold describes. "GirlFIEND in Paris was born out of the Covid lockdown," Jacob explains, "With both of us working in separate locations, we decided to take a different approach by making the story more intimate in its tone – a Paris romance novella to reacquaint the readers with these two characters, and allow the complexity of their relationship to grow and evolve." "While also delivering a solid dose of horror and action that is expected from GirlFIEND" says Arnold. "It is a dark fairytale after all."

The GirlFIEND in Paris: A Bloodthirsty Bedtime Story hardcover will be available at comic stores on the 12th of October 2o22 and in bookstores on the 25th of October
