Harper Collins has announced the January 7, 2020 publication of The Fire Never Goes Out, a graphic novel memoir made up of personal journal-comics and essays that span eight years of the young-adult life of comics creator Noelle Stevenson. Subtitled “A Memoir in Pictures,” the new collection charts Stevenson’s growth from an aspirational teen to early success as a National Book Award finalist for her first graphic novel Nimona
, which is currently in production as an animated feature by Blue Sky Studio, and is scheduled for release on March 5, 2021 (see “Disney Reserves Dates”).
The 160-page The Fire Never Goes Out is age-rated 14+ by Harper Collins, which classifies the forthcoming graphic novel as “Young Adult Nonfiction.”
In addition to the award-winning Nimona, Stevenson is one of the four creators behind the successful Lumberjanes comics, and she is currently the showrunner for the Netflix revival of She-Ra (see “Noelle Stevenson Unveils She-Ra and the Princesses of Power”).
