CA – Ravina The Witch? Signing + OVUM Art Show

Press Release:

In celebration of the english release of Junko Mizuno’s graphic novel: Ravina The Witch?, Gallery Nucleus is proud to host an exhibition of original paintings from the pages of this beautiful and austere fantasy comic on Saturday, August 5th at 6:00 PM.

Junko will be in attendance to use her wand to bewitch guests and sign books. There will also be fun treats, activities and new exclusive releases on opening night.

ABOUT RAVINA THE WITCH?:
Ravina The Witch was originally published in French by Soleil, and tells the story of a little orphan girl who is turned into a witch after receiving a magic wand from a strange old woman. Ravina is granted great power that she can use to make the world bend to her will — if it doesn’t corrupt her first.

Mizuno is a highly sought after visual artist, and it’s always exciting to see more of her work made available in English. The presentation of Ravina The Witch brings to mind the worlds of Cinderella or Labyrinth, but Mizuno’s work is decidedly more mature than those, so readers should not expect something suitable for an all-ages audience
