MK Reed writes to point us to a new website, SAVE APATHEA! which will serialize her upcoming First Second graphic novel, AMERICUS, which is due out in late 2011. It’s described as the story of “Neil Barton, a teenager growing up in Oklahoma, and his fight to keep his favorite fantasy series, The Chronicles of Apathea Ravenchilde, in his public library.” Reed (a sometime Beat contributor) writes and Jonathan Hill provides art. The first chapter was previously published in PAPERCUTTER #7. New pages will go up Monday-Wednesday-Friday.
