Book Details

Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in this darkly funny YA graphic novel.

When cynical, gothy Kay lets her mom talk her into joining the youth group at their church, she's prepared for the dorky sing-alongs and the cheesy slogans about dodging temptation. What she isn't prepared for is walking in on the clean-cut youth group leaders, Meg and Cortland, in the middle of a real-deal exorcism.

Turns out these wholesome Christian teens are demon-hunting soldiers in a secret war that’s heating up fast, and even if Kay wanted to stay on the sidelines, she doesn’t have a choice – she’s a “Blight,” a human who demons can’t possess, and that makes her a target.

But Kay's in good hands with her new friends – for them, fighting literal demons is all in a Sunday’s work!

"
Full of comedic beats, demon expulsions, and ’90s camp." –Kirkus

"Fun and fast-paced, this graphic novel will “jump for joy” right off shelves and is for anyone who can see the comedy in worship or identifies with the drive to save their corner of the world." –School Library Journal

"Sure to keep young readers on the edge of their seats." –Comic Book Resources, from "10 Exciting New Graphic Novels From 2024 (So Far)"
