CHESHIRE CROSSING

by Andersen, SarahWeir, Andy

CHESHIRE CROSSING brings together the heroines of Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and The Wizard of Oz in a charming fantasy mash-up, brimming over with Andy's trademark wit and nerdy enthusiasm, and filtered through a decidedly quirky genre perspective.

Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy - after years of being labeled "crazy" for their insistence on the existence of other worlds - meet at Cheshire Crossing, a supernatural boarding school where they are finally believed and for the first time treated as the holders of special powers rather than freaks. They are meant to learn how to use and control their superheroic abilities, but quickly find themselves sucked back into their magical realms when a new threat arises. When the Wicked Witch and Captain Hook form an evil alliance to conquer the worlds of Oz, Neverland, and Wonderland, the girls must work together to save not only these fantastical lands but also Earth itself.

This "storybook meets superheroes" graphic novel features the original magical girls of fantasy embarking on exciting supernatural adventures in a tale that could only come from the imagination of Andy Weir and the illustrative sorcery of Sarah Andersen.

ANDY WEIR is the bestselling author of The Martian (Crown 2014; 3 million copies sold) as well as the hit follow up Artemis (Crown 2017; nearly 400k copies sold). He was a software engineer in his previous life and is a lifelong space nerd and devoted hobbyist of subjects such as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. The Martian was made into a blockbuster film starring Matt Damon in 2015.

SARAH ANDERSEN is a cartoonist, illustrator, and the author of numerous books based on her Sarah's Scribbles webcomic series published on Tapas.io. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014. Both her illustration and cartooning work have been recognized by the Society of Illustrators.
