Palefire, the first collaboration between writer MK Reed (The Cute Girl Network,Americus) and artist Farel Dalrymple (The WrenchiesOmega the Unknown), is coming this fall from Secret Acres. Reed and Dalrymple take us back to high school for a hot date to the party of the year. Meet MK and Farel on September 19th at the 2015 Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland.

Brandon Graham, author of King City and Multiple Warheads writes:

“Farel and M.K capture a feeling of small town life that rings true and is just the kind of stuff I like to read.”

In the small town world of Palefire, everyone knows everybody and everyone hates Darren, the firebug, the bad boy trouble follows everywhere. Good girl Alison finds a warmth to Darren, a spark everyone’s missing. Can Alison play with fire without getting burned?

Hope Larson, author of Chiggers and illustrator of A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel calls Palefire:

“Gorgeous and moving. Dalrymple’s cartooning sings, and Reed has the best ear for dialogue in comics.”

You don’t want to miss this party – even if it ends in flames. See you in September!
