The Altered History of Willow Sparks

The classic idea of a magical transformation, and the lesson of being careful what you wish for, is revisited in The Altered History of Willow Sparks by Tara O’Connor. This high school-set graphic novel does a terrific job with individual moments but doesn’t fully assemble them into a coherent whole. Willow has acne, one good friend, and a part-time job at the local library. Both she and her friend are bullied by the pretty, popular crowd, a situation Willow is [...]

Oni Launches Video Game Series by Going Direct to Audience, Bypassing Retailers

I haven’t played Dream Daddy, a yaoi-ish dating sim (visual novel) game where the user plays a single dad “new to town and eager to romance other hot Dads.” I did see a lot of people on Twitter enjoying it, though. Now Oni Press is putting out a five-issue tie-in comic series where each issue is by different creators focusing on different Dads. It launched at PAX West (a gaming convention) at the end of August, which seems like the [...]

Hopeless Savages: Break

Sometimes you can go home again. I’ve always loved the Hopeless Savages series, created and written by Jen Van Meter. It ran from 2002-2005, was collected in 2010 (previous link), and finally had a new installment in 2015. In cases like these, one worries that nostalgia won’t be enough, that the magic has been lost (and decade-older readers won’t recapture the same sense of wonder). Thankfully, that’s not the case here. Which is wonderful, since the whole series is based [...]

Kim Reaper: Vampire Island is a four-issue miniseries that brings back Kim and Becka. College relationships are tough for everyone, but they’re EXTRA hard for Kim. Her grumpy grim reaper bosses are always mad at her, her girlfriend Becka’s roommate keeps hanging around, and now everybody is super into vampires for some reason!

A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns

A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns is exactly what it says: an introduction to general-neutral pronouns in comic form. The short graphic novel by Archie Bongiovanni and co-writer Tristan Jimerson is out this week. It’s immediately approachable, with the two talking the reader through this introduction to what may be a new way to use language for some readers. The non-binary Archie uses they/them pronouns, while the cis Tristan uses he/him. They purposefully designed a guide that could [....

Open Earth

Open Earth is the first original graphic novel from Limerence Press, the Oni Press imprint dedicated to erotic and sex education comics. As expected, it has several diverse and explicit sex scenes (which makes it problematic to read on an airplane, as I tried to). Unfortunately, the actual story isn’t as fleshed out or lovingly portrayed. As written by Sarah Mirk and illustrated by Eva Cabrera, this is about the culture clash between the generations on a space station. Rigo’s [...]

Archival Quality

This impressive debut graphic novel uses a ghost story to explore questions of medical ethics and mental health. I found myself eager to follow along with Celeste as she struggles to understand the situation she’s in in Archival Quality, written by Ivy Noelle Weir and illustrated by Steenz. Celeste’s depression and anxiety kept her from graduating college and just lost her a job she really liked. Her only option seems to be an archivist job at a creepy local museum [...]

Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom

Out later this month is Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom, a terrific concept that unfortunately disappoints in the execution. This camp-based murder mystery is the debut graphic novel of co-writers Terry Blas and Molly Muldoon as well as artist Matthew Seely. Seely has an animation background, which shows in the expressive and slightly exaggerated character design. It felt like I was watching a cartoon, in both good — clear emotion, colorful settings, outsized facial features — and bad ways [.....

Hasbro Group Editor Sarah Gaydos Leaves IDW For Oni Press

Per Newsarama, Hasbro Group Editor Sarah Gaydos, who took the job after John Barber stepped down from his editorial duties at IDW in 2016, is moving to a newly-created job at Oni Press. Gaydos will become the Editorial Director of Licensed Publishing at Oni shortly, apparently leaving IDW without a Hasbro Group Editor in the wake of the Unicron universe-ending event. Which honestly makes us even more anxious to see what comes after that. Keep reading for more details.

The Tea Dragon Society

Archer Coe to Return From Oni Press

Archer Coe and the Thousand Natural Shocks was a retro-styled pulp adventure graphic novel by Jamie S. Rich and Dan Christensen. It starred a hypnotist working to stop a serial killer, and I enjoyed the twisty mystery and the quirkiness of the lead character. Now Coe is back in a new graphic novel, Archer Coe and the Way to Dusty Death. Here’s the publisher’s description: Archer Coe, master hypnotist, is back to performing by day and consulting for the rich [...]

Spectacle

There are good mash-ups, and there are great ones, ones that make you wonder “how terrific! why haven’t I seen this combination before?” Megan Rose Gedris’s Spectacle is great, combining life in the circus, steampunk touches, a ghost sibling, and a murder mystery. Anna is the practical twin, creator of a steam-driven conjecture engine that can predict future events using statistics to 78% accuracy. Ironic, then, that she tells fortunes, knowing that they’re trickery. Kat is the twin liked by [.....

Preview: The Damned Relaunches Wednesday With $1 Issue

I admire folks who know they’ve got a good idea and are willing to keep at it until the rest of the world notices. The Damned by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt originally launched in 2006. There were 8 issues in two miniseries through 2008. Since then, Bunn and Hurtt have had a lengthy run on The Sixth Gun. That’s recently ended, so it’s time to see if The Damned can find its audience now. Oni Press is making the [...]
