Lone is a new middle-grade graphic novel by Angie Hewitt. In this fantasy, a soon-to-be eighth-grader Alma makes a disturbing discovery: the lake her town is named for has disappeared, along with everyone's remembrance of it having ever existed. With her best friend's help, Alma investigates the mystery, because more than just the lake has vanished; and now Alma worries: is she the cause of these mass disappearances? Lone has been picked up by former Justice League editor Rebecca Taylor at Vault Comics' MG and YA imprint Wonderbound, who have acquired world rights to the middle-grade graphic novel.
Angie Hewitt tweeted "thrilled to finally announce my debut graphic novel — LONE, a mysterious fantasy full of bizarre disappearances and the obstacles of loneliness ☆彡 publication is slated for summer 2023!"
