Love comes to DC this fall in the form of a new teen romance, Victor and Nora: A Gotham Love Story. Set many years before Victor becomes the iconic Batman villain Mr. Freeze, Victor and Nora tells the untold love story of Victor Fries and Nora Kumar and is a heart-wrenching exploration of living life to the fullest, and how far one will go for love.

This new young adult (YA) graphic novel debuts November 3, 2020 and is written by bestselling YA author Lauren Myracle (Let It Snow, ttyl, ttfn) and illustrated by Isaac Goodhart. Myracle and Goodhart previously collaborated on the critically acclaimed Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale and are excited to come together in this moving story about first love and first heartbreaks.

 

Seventeen-year-old Victor Fries has a cold heart. After his brother died in a tragic house fire that Victor feels responsible for, his parents have isolated themselves, and Victor has dedicated his whole life to one thing: science.

 

Nora Kumar is full of life. She is suffering from an incurable illness that will slowly consume her, so she’s decided to live her last days to the fullest at her summer home in Gotham City until her birthday, the day she plans to take her own life.

 

When Victor and Nora meet one day at the cemetery outside of town, they are astonished to find the connection they’ve been missing in their lives. Their summer quickly spirals into a beautiful romance, and Victor’s cold heart is able to thaw, allowing him to begin to enjoy life just a little more. But when Victor learns of Nora’s illness, he’s driven to try to find a solution to keep from losing another person he loves…by whatever means he can. 

Victor and Nora: A Gotham Love Story is a tragic tale about living life to the fullest and what it truly means to love…and to let go.
