Victory Parade, a graphic novel set in Brooklyn and Buchenwald during the Second World War, coming in Spring 2024 from Schocken Books. Pre-order here!

Advance praise for Victory Parade:

“Victory Parade by the brilliant Leela Corman is a fever-dream of love and vengeance, war and rage and longing and women's wrestling. How in the world did Corman ever imagine this gorgeously composed book into being, especially in the way it builds so carefully only to explode into jagged Modernist shards at the end? What a marvel.”
- Lauren Groff, author of MATRIX

“Leela’s work expertly pairs elegance and brutality in an intergenerational cry for existence. Often floating or sinking or both, VICTORY PARADE pulls us through what it means to survive each day, nurturing a fire in the name of lives stolen to genocide and indifference.”
— Nate Powell, creator, March trilogy & Save It For Later

“This book is a monolith, it is condensed pain and a great body of literature.”
- Ulli Lust, creator, Today Is The Last Day Of The Rest Of Your Life
