New Graphic Novel Announcement: Tragic, a Hamlet Retelling!

I am so thrilled to announce my next project and graphic novel debut, TRAGIC, a retelling of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

With stunning artwork by Valentina Pinti and colors by Chiara Di Francia, I’m really proud of this project! I’ve been waiting for a very long time to announce this one, and couldn’t be more excited.

Check it out on shelves Spring 2022, with more news to come!

Quotes by Dana Mele  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Dance like no one is watching; email like it may one day be read aloud in a deposition.”
Dana Mele, People Like Us

“Does someone who does one bad thing, even one really bad thing,
deserve bad things to happen to them? Deserve to be murdered or framed
for murder?
I can’t wrap my head around whether I’m still allowed to remember
Todd the way I want to, as the brother I adored, or whether the shadow of
what he did has to darken and twist that forever.”
Dana Mele, People Like Us

“Six candles burning in the dark Find them fast before they spark One is in the living room One in the garden where the flowers bloom One on the boat that bobs on the lake One in the room where we sleep and wake One in the attic over your head One in the cellar where you’ll find one dead.”
Dana Mele, Summer's Edge
