Praise For The Backstagers and the Ghost Light (Backstagers #1)

"Fans of the series will appreciate Mientus' exploration of characters' backstories—and all will have a chance to learn more in future prose installments. An adequate dessert for existing fans that just may tempt a few new ones as well."

— Kirkus Reviews

"[Mientus} preserves the spirit and flavor of the comics with hilarious pranks and theater talk, high-energy hustle, and, particularly, in a young cast, notably diverse in ethnic and gender identity, who face personal issues common to everyone . . . as well as the odd supernatural threat."
