The Revolution of Cassandra is a 6 volume graphic novel based on an award-winning screenplay by Eric D. Howell. The synopsis is as follows:[1]

Vin1.jpg Cassandra is the dread-lock & Birkenstock equivalent to Lara Croft. While caught in the crossfire of a raging civil war, this patchouli-wearing, humanitarian must save her tomboy sister from the firing squad by beseeching help from a right-wing gun-smuggler, and changes the entire course of the war by inadvertently starting her own revolution.

An action-romance in the tradition of The African Queen or Romancing The Stone. A female Don Quixote living life as it should be.

This is a story about using your voice for what you believe in, not screaming about what you’re against!


It was rumored that Evanescence and Veridia frontwoman Deena Jakoub wrote a song titled Use My Voice for the novel, which was registered on ASCAP in June 2020.[2] The song was released as the third single from The Bitter Truth on August 14, 2020.[3] Director Howell hinted at Amy Lee's involvement in the project in February 2020.[4] It was later confirmed by Howell that the song was inspired by his novel, whose Volume 1 was made available for free on October 20, 2020.[5]

The second issue of Echoes from the Void is named after Howell's graphic novel and connects both its story and Use My Voice.[6]

This time, instead of a film, he wanted to make it into a graphic novel. As I read it, I kept hearing this song I’d been working on, ‘Use My Voice,’ over and over in my head, because it felt like the song and Cassandra lived in the same world. Book 2 in our “Echoes from the Void” project will be completely dedicated to Use My Voice and The Revolution of Cassandra, connecting the song and story just as Eric and I feel they were meant to be."
