Soon, we will release the Kassandra graphic novel version! Yes, our heroine will star a graphic novel with art and story signed by the writer of the film, Roger Monteiro.
The idea has been developed since last year. Roger (who is also a visual artist) did the project autonomously. He even admits that it was a way to keep connected to the character for some time more. "It's easy to become attached to her, especially when you have a predisposition to be interested in crazy and mean girls in black and white," he says.
The graphic novel is called Kassandra, Verses of Silence and Madness and attempts to retell the story from the point of view of the character. The distinction begins with the visual: the short is in black and white, but the comic book will be colorized. "No realistic colors, but something of dream, almost lysergic" says Roger. Furthermore, Kassandra also now expresses herself orally, at least in text. "We actually have access to character thoughts, which are presented in verse, rhyming, which cause them to generate a stream of consciousness."
