“The Girl Who Flew Away” is a graphic novel in progress by M. Dean, a third year illustration student at the Ringling College of Art and Design. The script was written in December, 2012 and I began making pages in May, 2013.
The story is set in 1976 and partly in 1926, following a twenty-something secretary, Greer Johnson. Through an affair with her boss, she becomes pregnant and is sent to stay with his friends for the duration in Key West, Florida. There, she begins to recollect her past and to dream about a little girl she’s never seen before named Eugenie. Meanwhile, she makes friends with a gardener missing his family and struggles with her temporary caretakers.
For now, I won’t be sharing pages on the internet, as I am trying to build up a buffer so that a consistent schedule of updates can be maintained while I’m in school. You’ll be sure to know when I finally have a site and a schedule is fixed, though!
- Characters: Character Lineup, Bios
- This comic hovers between a PG-13 and R “rating”, mostly for language and adult themes.
- I estimate the comic to be somewhere around 300 pages long, more or less. I hope to get it published.
- The pages are inked by hand and colored in Photoshop.
Thanks for reading!
