Megan Rose Gedris’s Circus-themed ‘Spectacle’ Returns for a Second Volume
PORTLAND, OR., July 6, 2018—Megan Rose Gedris (Yu+Me Dream) continues to deliver more harrowing haunted tales from the circus. Spectacle Volume 2 is coming to you via digital from Oni Press starting July 11, and will continue with an issue each month until November 2018.
Sisters Anna and Kat return for the second book of Megan Rose Gedris’s paranormal circus murder mystery, Spectacle! A murder is tough thing to solve, even without temperamental performers, supernatural occurrences, and a powder keg of a circus. In this arc, mysterious mutations begin to take over the circus, creating rifts and rival factions among the troupe. Anna experiences unsettling dreams that may hint at the underpinnings of the murder, and Kat finds that being dead doesn’t mean that her responsibilities have ended—or that her secrets will remain unburied.
Praise for Spectacle Volume 1:
“Humorous and heartfelt, creepy and captivating; readers will eagerly hope for another volume.” – Kirkus
“If you’re drawn to visually interesting artwork, this is definitely a series to consider. […] As a YA title I also think it’s a great introduction to more experimental styles of graphic novels.” – Black Nerd Problems
“It’s easy to admire Gedris’ artwork, with its bold, lush colors, emotive faces and body language, and even in black and white flashback sequences Gedris applies a splash of red to provide framing to the key details. There is just as much story found in the art as there are in the words. With Spectacle, the possibilities seem endless.” – Doom Rocket
