Love is in the air with the haunting ogn Crema by Johnny Christmas this February

 This February, Crema, an original graphic novel by #1 New York Times bestselling cartoonist Johnnie Christmas and Prism Award-nominee Dante Luiz arrives from Dark Horse Books. 

Chock full of romance, coffee, and mesmerizing art, this title is perfect for inclusion in any roundups or feature coverage you may be compiling for Valentine's Day or Black History Month.  
"It’s as satisfying as a just-made café con leche." --Publishers Weekly 


#1 New York Times bestselling cartoonist Johnnie Christmas and Prism Award-nominee Dante Luiz bring you a haunted tale of love, ghosts, and coffee beans.

"Crema is a comic filled with the struggles of everyone's lives: job problems, complicated relationships and, to a few, a slight taste of horror, it makes me feel as addicted as I am to caffeine."

–Rafael Albuquerque


“If you’ve ever experienced the buzz of a perfect cup of coffee, the decaffeinated high of falling in love, or perhaps even coffee and love simultaneously, then you might relate to Crema—the recently released graphic novel created by Johnnie Christmas.” –Barista Magazine


"Luiz's breathtaking art for the book reminds me of Winsor McCay and Maurice Sendak in the way that it invokes a sense of magic even in depictions of ordinary things like coffee cups and messy bedrooms."

 –SYFY Wire

Esme, a barista, feels invisible, like a ghost . . . also, when Esme drinks too much coffee she actually sees ghosts. Yara, the elegant heir to a coffee plantation, is always seen, but only has eyes for Esme. Their world is turned upside down when the strange ghost of an old-world nobleman begs Esme to take his letter from New York City to a haunted coffee farm in Brazil, to reunite him with his lost love of a century ago. Bringing sinister tidings of unrequited love.
