A Monday announcement from The Washington Post revealed that fans have two Meyer Lunar Chronicles graphic novels to look forward to. The upcoming Wires and Nerve duology will take place in Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles universe — after the events of Winter and before those detailed in Meyer's latest book, Stars Above — and feature more than a few familiar faces. The first installment is slated for a January 2017 release.
Wires and Nerve is Meyer's return to her Lunar Chronicles heroines, to the delight of Lunartics everywhere. The author's next novel, Heartless, comes out on November 8. In it, Meyer leaves the Lunar Chronicles universe to delve into the world of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Of course, the story of the woman who would become the Queen of Hearts will be told with Meyer's signature, fractured-fairytale twist.
Meyer's graphic novel duology centers on Iko the android and Cinder's BFF, but it also features the author's main Lunar Chronicles protagonists: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter. Douglas Holgate is attached to illustrate Wires and Nerve, and some of his Iko sketches are already available for online viewing. You can check them out in the tweet embedded below.
Lunartics might be celebrating, but no one's happier about Meyer's graphic novels than Meyer herself. In a Monday blog post, the author wrote, "I really, really love graphic novels and it’s been on my wish list to write one since I was a teenager, so this has been a dream come true for me."
Good on you, Meyer. Dreams come true are what fairytales are all about, after all.
