Announcing a new graphic novel, ‘Someday Comes Paradise’

A semi-autobiographical graphic novel based on an award-winning screenplay by Gary Dean, Someday Comes Paradise is a character-rich journey that the author hopes will provoke and inspire.

Dare To Be Free Press, a new independent press launched in 2020 from entrepreneur Gary Dean Simpson and his wife and business partner Amy E. Simpson, released its first graphic novel, Someday Comes Paradise.

A semi-autobiographical graphic novel based on an award-winning screenplay by Gary Dean, Someday Comes Paradise is a character-rich journey that the author hopes will provoke and inspire. Set on the coast in South Texas, this Southern saga reveals a coming-of-age journey of troubled souls holding onto a flame of hope.

“With emotional reality at its core, Someday Comes Paradise pulls from the gritty South Texas shores of days gone by and the desperation of lives across cultures and poverty,” explains Gary Dean. “It’s my hope that readers connect to the challenges, faults and failures of my characters, while at the same time rooting for their redemption.”

With the publication of Someday Comes Paradise, Dare To Be Free Press introduces a fresh, original perspective into the literary world with a focus on graphic novels and the profound opportunity for “visual fanship” of connoisseurs of illustration. From there, the published offerings will expand into innovative poetry, modern fiction, and more, all presented in unique visual formats to meet the experiential demands of today’s audiences.

Dare To Be Free Press’ debut catalog will consist of groundbreaking graphic novels featuring art from international artists. The first book launches today with at least three others planned in the next twelve months. Highlights include:
