Writer Josh Eiserike has announced that his project with local cartoonist Zac Crockett is now complete. The Anyone but Virginia graphic novel is available for purchase through Indy Planet. Here’s a synopsis:
Meet Virginia. Straight-A student. Co-captain of the girls’ soccer team. Senior Class Vice President, Truman High School class of 1999. Full ride to Washington University in St. Louis. Virginia left all of that behind to become Volcano Girl, the government-created-super-powered- guardian of Chicago. Increasingly distracted and alienated, Volcano Girl is slipping in performance. A phone call changed her life. A former classmate somehow tracked down Volcano Girl- as Virginia Patterson. As senior class vice president it is her responsibility to plan the 10-year reunion. She has neither spoken to her friends nor been home in six years. Her friends are clueless to the nature of her profession and abilities. “Anyone But Virginia” is a superhero book, but it owes more to movies like “Grosse Pointe Blank” and the films of John Hughes.
The project got a boost this last year with a successful Kickstarter campaign to finish the final issue of the series.
Update: You can also buy the book in digital form.
