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the success of the Ten Speed graphic novel program, with its past New York Times best-sellers, moving from non-fiction/historical content to new channels for illustrated, giftable fiction.
Praise for The Martian:
“Brilliant…a celebration of human ingenuity [and] the purest example of real-science sci-fi for many years…Utterly compelling.”—Wall Street Journal
