Posted on December 14, 2015
Dark Horse Books announced that it will create a graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaimain's award winning short story "How to Talk to Girls at Parties." The story was originally published as part of Gaimain's collection Fragile Things: Short Fiction and Wonders. The story won the Locus Award for Best Short Story and was nominated for a Huge Award in 2007.
Brazilian artists and twin brothers Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon will illustrate the work. The story will be released in June, 2016. The story follows two British teenage boys in the 1970s who are determined to meet some cute girls. Enn and Vic crash a party and manage to meet some girls who are nice, but kind of odd. Let's just say they're not from around here. Enn and Vic have very different interactions with the girls and their lives will never be the same.
The story is also being made into a feature film starring Nicole Kdiman, Elle Fanning, Ruth Wilson, Alex Sharp and Matt Lucas. The film is being directed by John Cameron Mitchell. Philippa Goslett adapted Gamian's story into a screenplay. It's a wonderful story that you can read for free here.
