Goldie Vance

by Hope Larson, Brittney Williams and Sarah Stern
£9.99   paperback  Boom! Studios (BOOM! Box) (2016)

Goldie Vance by Hope Larson, Brittney Williams and Sarah Stern Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel) and Brittney Williams (Patsy Walker, A.K.A Hellcat!) present the newest gal sleuth on the block with Goldie Vance, an exciting, whodunnit? adventure that mixes the fun of Eloise with the charm of Lumberjanes.
 
In a timeless story, 16-year-old Marigold 'Goldie' Vance lives at a Florida resort with her dad, who manages the place. Her mom, who divorced her dad years ago, works as a live mermaid at a club downtown. Goldie has an insatiable curiosity, which explains her dream to one day become the hotel's in-house detective.
 
When Charles, the current detective, encounters a case he can't crack, he agrees to mentor Goldie in exchange for her help solving the mystery utilizing her smarts, random skills, and connections with the hotel staff and various folks in town.

"Like her predecessors, Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars, sixteen year old Marigold Vance is stubborn, adventurous, and smarter than almost everyone in the room. She’s also head over heels for her friend Diane who runs the local record store. Goldie is equal parts ferocious and sweet, the kind of girl you trust to be there in a pinch. I love that this series is an all-ages comic. Publisher BOOM! Box is particularly good at producing queer stories for a younger audience (Lumberjanes and The Backstagers come to mind), and Goldie Vance is no exception. Additionally, Brittney Williams’s art is dreamy."
