Get Another Sneak Peek at <i>Olivia Twist</i>, Award-Winning Novelist Darin Strauss&#8217;s First Comic

Earlier this summer, we brought you the exclusive news that novelist Darin Strauss has teamed up with co-writer Adam Dalva, artist Emma Vieceli and colorist Lee Loughridge for his very first comic, Olivia Twist. Strauss is the acclaimed author of Chang and Eng, More Than It Hurts You and the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning memoir Half a Life, and is edited on Olivia Twist by the legendary Karen Berger, whose eponymous imprint at Dark Horse Comics continues to acquire unusual and compelling original projects. Surprising no one, Olivia Twist is a gender-bent (and dystopian) take on Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist about “a rag-tag girl gang of thieves running free in a dangerous future.” In advance of the final order cutoff of August 27th, Paste is proud to bring you an exclusive first look at Vieceli and Loughridge’s interior art (mild spoiler alert: this preview contains the final two pages of the first issue). Be sure to request a copy from your local retailer, or nab it from stands on September 19th.
