LOS ANGELES, CA (November 8, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today announced PLATE TECTONICS: AN ILLUSTRATED MEMOIR, an original graphic novel meditation on being a single mother in the modern world from cartoonist Margaux Motin. Life is full of little earthquakes. When the dust settles, how do you rebuild?
PLATE TECTONICS, arriving in stores June 2019, follows Margaux through one of the most transformative periods of her life as she navigates her own heartbreak and subsequent hope with unabashed wit and charm.
