Alice Oseman: Heartstopper

MWF Digital

From prize-winning writer and illustrator Alice Oseman, high-school queer romance Heartstopper is a graphic novel series that has since become a hit Netflix adaptation. Fresh, vital and unapologetically joyful, it follows a tight-knit group of teens grappling with love, loyalty, mental illness and self-definition. Oseman speaks with fellow YA writer Tobias Madden about her heartwarming series and its journey from a humble webcomic to a million-copy bestselling publishing sensation and what has been named ‘possibly the loveliest show on TV’ (Guardian).

Online | Available on demand from 8 September
