Following this month’s release of Valerie Minelli’s Mrs. Follein hardcover collection, and the all-new omnibus editions of Chris Onstad’s seminal strip Achewood, Oni Press announces three more print editions of modern webcomics for the summer season!
Starting in May, Oni will collect Kyle Latino’s Savage Beard of She Dwarf, a humorous young adult fantasy webcomic that tells the heartwarming story of a lonely dwarf searching for her place in the world.
“That scrappy little webcomic I drew is gonna be an honest, for-real graphic novel! Don’t that just beat all! All seven chapters of the Savage Beard of She Dwarf will be printed in luscious color and hit store shelves next spring! I couldn’t have done it without the support of my readers. THANK YOU ALL!” says series creator Kyle Latino.
Also coming in June is the notoriously dark and hilarious webcomic collection Hell Was Full.
The series is complete with the infamous alternative text and an illogical amount of new material that should leave old and new fans alike pleasantly surprised. A group of raccoons gnaw on God’s severed head; a man brags to his friend about driving a Transformer out of its own funeral; a toaster revolts against its master; these are just some of the black as sin humor you can look forward to within the pages of Hell Was Full.
On a scale of one to ‘ah oh my god holy shit!’ I’m off the charts excited for this collection of comics to hit unsuspecting bookshelves nationwide” says creator Branson Reese. “Working with Oni Press and especially Amanda Meadows has been a dream come true. They’ve taken my -frankly- disgusting little fever dreams and turned them into an extremely beautiful book. Oh man. You’re just gonna flip for this book, I tell ya! Hell of a book!”
In August fans can look forward to Frankie Comics, a hilarious indie comic collected for the first time in hardcover. Fans of Johnny Wander, Pusheen, and Chi’s Sweet Home will love this collection of the hit webcomic by Rachel Dukes. When they discover a kitten asleep in their doorway, real-life artist couple Rachel and Mike immediately fall prey to her charms. Soon, the new queen of their home is a blue point Siamese cat named Frankie. Stealing snacks, making mischief, and taking snuggling very seriously, Frankie proves, again and again, the wholesome joys of a feline companion.
“I started Frankie Comics to amuse myself during a period of isolation in my final year of grad school, and its popularity as a webcomic took me by complete surprise. Creating Frankie, meeting fans, and befriending other cat enthusiasts has changed my life, truly” says creator Rachel Dukes. “Years on, I’m so excited and happy to be releasing a remastered, full-color collection of the series for a new generation of readers – I could purr!”
Keep your eyes peeled for more information on these new collections and others in the Oni Press summer 2020 lineup in the coming weeks.
