I've been looking forward to this OGN arriving for some time from Dark Horse and now the wait's nearly over–it'll be in shops next Wednesday on September 16th. Heart in a Box is written by Kelly Thompson of Jem and the Holograms from IDW and illustrated by Meredith McClaren. The premise is that a girl, Emma, wishes away her heart and a stranger grants her wish. She finds, of course, that this is a curse and not a blessing and has to reunite the seven fragments of her heart. The idea behind the book reminds me of many of my favorite folk tales and even a little bit of some of the folktale elements of Hellboy. The artwork looks gorgeous, too.
Here's a preview of what's in store for Heart in a Box:
