A new graphic novel or fans of fantasy and RPG goes on sale today as part one of a planned four part series published by Lerner Publishing Group (LPG). A House Divided: The Accursed Inheritance of Henrietta Achilles is produced by Haiko Hörnig and Marius Pawlitza based on their own love of the genre and gaming from their childhood, and now as adults. But then when your parents have their own comic book store, as Hörnig’s did, something is bound to soak in, like RPG osmosis.
Here’s your preview of the book that you pick up at the usual places online, or directly from LPG, but even better, ask for it to be ordered or kept at your lock comic store for when they reopen.
A House Divided: The Accursed Inheritance of Henrietta Achilles is a magical and dynamic romp that takes its cues from the role-playing games the creators played as kids. When 15-year old Henrietta Achilles is plucked from the orphanage and taken to a mysterious town called Malrenard, she’s surprised to learn that the death of an uncle she’s never met means she’s inherited his home. But Henrietta quickly learns that this inheritance is more of a burden than a gift. The house holds a powerful, magical secret—and now it’s plagued by bandits and strange creatures intent on possessing the house and its treasures. Henrietta is quickly swept up in their antics as she is thrown headlong into an ominous but kooky adventure full of stolen quiche, talking statues, and roving pirate gangs.
