The mouse who peaks in the viper's pit is eaten
Quiet obedience is the very source of our unity
These proverbs are meant to bring comfort and solace. But for Henni? Not so much.
In the original graphic novel HENNI, Manhattan-based writer/artist Miss Lasko Gross presents the adventures and trials of Henni, a rebellious and curious young woman who questions authority, challenges the ways of her strict religion and strikes out on her own in search of a better life. The boutique graphic novel publisher Z2 will publish HENNI, introducing readers to a unique and distinctive character--and a creative vision that channels Maurice Sendak and Lynda Barry.
Henni embarks on what Lakso-Gross calls "a rare adventure story where violence isn't the method to resolution and success. This is a fable about faith where faith--or a new system of spirituality--doesn't solve the world's problems." HENNI is a coming of age tale that, like the main character, refuses easy answers.
