Monster High: Hopes and Screams is an upcoming graphic novel, the first within the Monster High franchise. Though previously non-doll log comics had been released as part of other works, such as the magazines, they are all of the screenshot comic variety and mostly retell the stories of the webisodes. Monster High: Hopes and Screams is the first that utilizes original art and stories. The stories—a collection of seven—are written by Heather Nuhfer and illustrated by Josh Howard. The graphic novel will be released on December 3, 2013 by Little, Brown and Company.
