Brenna Thummler is not dead. She just likes writing about dead things, like ghosts and the jelly shoe trend. Her first original graphic novel, Sheets, became a “Barnes and Noble Best Book of 2018” after it garnered praise from authors like Lemony Snicket and Brian Selznick, who are too far out of her league for this to make sense. Its sequel, Delicates, was published in March of this year, and it will make you cry. She also created a short comic for COVID Chronicles: A Comics Anthology, proceeds of which are supporting indie booksellers affected by the pandemic. I think this one is making people cry, too. When it’s not 2020 or 2021, Brenna spends her free time performing in local theater, crafting with friends, and booking flights to Nordic countries.
