Davenport West High School grad Grace Allison launches "Wander," a comedic fantasy epic

SAVANNAH, GA (08/10/2012)(readMedia)-- Grace Allison, 2007 graduate of Davenport West High School and 2011 graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, has just released the first installment of her digital-only comic series, "Wander: Olive Hopkins and the Ninth Kingdom," a comedic fantasy that follows perpetual grad student Olive Hopkins as she finds herself transported to the Ninth Kingdom, a World of Warcraft-style fantasy land straight out of that section of the Barnes and Noble Olive has always avoided. Grace is the artist and colorist for the series.

Having graduated with a B.F.A. in Sequential Art from SCAD, Grace was accepted into the prestigious artist collective, Periscope Studio, in Portland, OR, where she currently lives and works.

Comic Book.com calls "Wander" a "terrifically entertaining book....Allison's art is stylized to the book in a way that's perfect."

"Wander: Olive Hopkins and the Ninth Kingdom" is available on Comixology, part of publisher Monkeybrain's new initiative to offer a digital comics line, available cross-platform, meaning one purchase will allow readers to enjoy the comic on computer, iPhones, iPads, etc.

The second installment in the epic series will be out in early September.
