Originally a publisher of chapbooks, short stories, novels, comics, and zine collections, Conundrum Press has been exclusively publishing award-winning literary graphic novels for over a decade of its 25 years in business.
Zoe Maeve, one of Conundrum’s comic artists, is celebrating the release of her first graphic novel. The Gift is a gripping story that opens on the snow-blanketed grounds of the Alexander Palace in Western Russia. After Anastasia Romanov mysteriously receives a camera on her fifteenth birthday, she begins to document her world, but the gift carries with it a weight she can’t yet see. A creature moves on the edge of her vision and stalks her dreams—something is following her, and it might not be human.
In this presentation, discover some of Conundrum Press’s award-winning graphic novels, and learn about the research behind Zoe Maeve’s gorgeous new work.
