The piece, as you may recall, follows med student Lynn (Gevinson) as she aids a not-quite-dead cadaver (Christopher Lloyd) in finding true love and had us weeping in less than 10 minutes. And apparently we weren’t the only ones — Cadaver is up for an Oscar in the animated short film category and is currently being made into a full-length motion picture.
Now, the duo has paired up once more to release a special paperback, full color graphic novel for adults based on the project and titled CADAVER: A Bittersweet Love Story. Set for a February release, the book/ebook will also include two full-length acoustic covers as performed by Gevinson — Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” (as featured in the film) and Pet Shop Boys’ “Heart” — and we’ve gotta say: Girlfriend can sing. Is there anything this girl can’t do? Seriously. Order your advance copy at Book Cellar.
