Lion Forge Unveils a New Logo and Plans for Roar in 2017
With this year’s American Library Association Midwinter Conference in Atlanta on Friday, the self-described publisher of “comics for everyone” begins to roll out news of its upcoming spring lineup!
Lion Forge made headlines late last year with the announcements of its teen and younger readers imprints—Roar and CubHouse—as well as news of the acquisition of boutique publisher Magnetic Press. The publisher “roars” into 2017 with an ambitious and approachable slate of books to make good on the promise of diverse offerings for every reader at every age!
Lion Forge has kicked off a full week of announcements with news of the second volume of Antoine Ozanam and Joël Jurion’s celebrated were-animal epic, KLAW, part of the Magnetic Collection at Lion Forge!
Following the explosive origin events in volume one, young Angel Tomassini travels the globe, fleeing the secret forces that hunt him and the ancient were-tiger spirit he possesses. Things get more complicated as he discovers other new were-warriors with different animal spirits and abilities, many of whom are out to destroy the others in order to become the most powerful being in the world! It is all-out were-war in “The Second Cycle”!
KLAW Volume 2 is the first title to be announced from Lion Forge’s Roar spring season, with more to follow throughout the week, ahead of the ALA Midwinter show.
KLAW Volume 2 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ March 2017 Previews catalog for release in May.
