Description

Enn is a sixteen-year-old boy who just doesn't understand girls, while his friend Vic seems to have them all figured out. Both teenagers are in for the shock of their young lives, however, when they crash a local party only to discover that the girls there are far, far more than they appear!

From the Locus Award-winning short story by Neil Gaiman--one of the most celebrated authors of our time-- and adapted in vibrant ink-and-watercolor illustrations by the Daytripper duo of Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon, this original hardcover graphic novel is absolutely not to be missed!

Praise For Neil Gaiman's How to Talk to Girls at Parties

Praise for Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane:
Gaiman's "mind is a dark fathomless ocean, and every time I sink into it, this world fades, replaced by one far more terrible and beautiful in which I will happily drown."--Benjamin Percy, The New York Times

"How do you decide to read How to Talk to Girls at Parties? You just read it!I'm looking forward to adaptations of more Neil Gaiman short stories from Dark Horse, up next is another of my favorites, Troll Bridge. I can't wait!” - Comic Spectrum 


"Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, manage to create a strangely unique place in the everyday world that Gaiman has created. I will admit I loved the brilliant elegance of the "poem," despite the strangeness of the origin. The artwork manages to highlight some of the stranger but subtle parts of the story well and continues the two's amazing work.” - Graphic Policy


"How To Talk To Girls At Parties" was already a masterpiece, award winning short story and now it's a masterpiece of a graphic novel that, honestly, everyone should read.” - Multiversity 


"This graphic novel can be enjoyed by all ages and its magic lies in it being experienced differently and successfully for each.” - AiPT!


"So yeah. HTTTGAP is really, really good, the exact kind of thing I look for in a Neil Gaiman story. Its got what I want, yet it changes just enough to make it stand apart from his other works. Its normal until it isnt, and really, isnt that what we want from any story?” - We the Nerdy


"The collaboration of the trio of creators provides a story that covers all the frailties of human interaction. There is a certain sadness prevalent in the book; the sadness of experiences long gone for the girls, the sadness that maybe Vic is pretyy much how Vic will be for the rest of his life. Then there is Enn, who hears poetry, who listens and despite his best intentions, remains alone. Still having been where Enn is, I think he will be fine.” - Comic Crusaders” 


" Between the dialogue we get from certain characters and the wonderful imaginative illustrations, there’s a lot to soak in. It’s truly an artistic masterpiece in my eyes.”  -Bleeding Cool
