From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Martian and Artemis, and illustrated by webcomics creator Sarah Andersen, this graphic novel brings together the heroines of Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and The Wizard of Oz in a charming fantasy mash-up as they join forces to defend their worlds from villainous threats.

Pulled from the pages of beloved children’s fantasy stories, Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy meet at a supernatural boarding school where they’re meant to learn how to use and control their special, superheroic powers. When villains like the Wicked Witch and Captain Hook form an evil alliance to conquer the worlds of Oz, Neverland, and Wonderland, the girls must work together to save not only these fantastical lands but also the Earth itself. This “storybook meets superheroes” graphic novel features the original magical girls of fantasy embarking on exciting supernatural adventures in a tale that could only come from the imagination of Andy Weir and the illustrative sorcery of Sarah Andersen.

Publication History: Trade Paperback Original

JOYOUS AND UNIQUE RIFF ON BELOVED CHARACTERS: This is a clever, original tribute to Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Wizard of Oz as only Andy Weir could conjure, brimming over with his trademark charm and nerdy enthusiasm, and filtered through a decidedly quirky genre perspective.

MEGA-BESTSELLING AUTHOR: With nearly 3 million copies of The Martian sold and a hit follow-up in 2017’s Artemis, Weir has legions of fans.

HUGELY POPULAR ILLUSTRATOR: Sarah Andersen is best known to her 2.8 million Instagram followers and 2.5 million Facebook fans as the creator of the Sarah’s Scribbles webcomic. Here, she shows off her artistic abilities as her fans have never seen before, moving from cartoonist sketches to gorgeous four-color illustrations.

POPULAR SUBJECT: Graphic novels aimed at young women/girls and those in the fantasy genre are among the best-selling and most in-demand (including Lumberjanes, titles by Raina Teigmeier, and more).

GREAT GIFT ITEM: Andersen’s lush and beautiful artwork transports readers to the lands of Oz, Neverland, and Wonderland making this a must-have gift for young adult and older fans who admire and read those classic tales.

GRAPHIC NOVEL OPPORTUNITY: This marks an opportunity to build on the success of the Ten Speed graphic novel program, with its past New York Times best-sellers, moving from non-fiction/historical content to new channels for illustrated, giftable fiction.

ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the success of his debut novel, The Martian, allowed him to live out his dream of writing full-time. He is a lifelong space nerd and devoted hobbyist of subjects such as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight.
