The Sacrifice of Darkness by Roxanne Gay

Primarily known for her books of social commentary and feminist essays and her opinion contributions to the New York Times, Roxanne Gay’s writing career has actually been very diverse. From novels and short stories, all the way to comics.

Along with poet Yona Harvey, Gay wrote World of Wakanda, a spin-off of the company’s Black Panther series, making them the first black women to be lead writers for Marvel Comics.

Now she’s back with a new graphic novel, adapted with Tracy Lynne Oliver and Rebecca Kirby from her own short story.

In a gentle sci-fi fable, a tragic misjudgment causes the light of the sun to diminish, sending the world into never-ending dark. Through flashbacks we see the events that led to the accident while, in the present, his surviving family struggles with the aftermath, searching for hope in the darkness.

“Some stories don’t leave you and such was the case with my short story ‘We Are the Sacrifice of Darkness,’ ” said Gay upon release of the comic. “When BOOM! Studios approached me about writing a graphic novel, I immediately knew what kind of story I wanted to tell–one about family and sorrow, faith that survives in a world of darkness, true love and an indelible bond between two people with the world against them.”
