CHRISTOPHER CANTWELL discusses his new graphic novel SHE COULD FLY with NICK DAZÉ

She Could Fly (Berger Books/Dark Horse Comics)

No one knows who she was, how she flew, or why.

An unknown woman flying at fantastic speeds and spectacular heights suddenly explodes mid-air. Luna Brewster, a disturbed 15-year-old girl becomes obsessed with learning everything about her while rumors and conspiracy theories roil. But will cracking the secrets of the Flying Woman’s inner life lead to the liberation from her own troubled mind—or will it take her to the point of no return?
