Vault’s Young Readers Imprint is Now Wonderbound which launches in 2021
Vault Comics has announced Wonderbound, the new brand for their young readers imprint. Wonderbound will publish science fiction, fantasy, and spooky graphic novels, mostly for middle grades readers. The Wonderbound branding replaces the line’s previous brand, Myriad.
Every Wonderbound book is a ticket to a land of wonder, inviting you to leave behind the ordinary, and explore a world of magic, marvels, and mysteries. Whether you’re learning fantastical wrassling, going on zany quests to deliver packages (and stuff), solving the mysteries of a gothic mansion, or settling into a spooky new apartment, you’re always in for an adventure.
Wonderbound’s catalog of all-new books includes work from both emerging talent and celebrated, best-selling creators. The wonder begins in Summer 2021, when Wonderbound launches with four books in its first year. In its second year, Wonderbound will scale up, publishing nine books in 2022, including seven all-new books, and the continuation of two series begun in 2021.
Wonderbound’s 2021 launch will include the already announced titles Wrassle Castle and The Unfinished Corner, and will include two other titles that will be announced in the coming weeks.
Lydia Riverthane has always dreamed of being a professional wrassler, the greatest of all fighters in the kingdom of Grimslade. Growing up in the shadow of Wrassle Castle, where her older brother routinely racks up championship belts, has only fueled her competitive fire. But when her brother is mysteriously arrested for treason, Lydia and her friends must find a way into the year-end tournament. There she can win back his freedom the only way she knows how…wrassling! Written by Colleen Coover & Paul Tobin, the team who brought you the multiple Eisner Award-winning Bandette with art by Galaad (Scales & Scoundrels), WRASSLE CASTLE is a joyous celebration of friendship and tenacity for young adult readers.
THE UNFINISHED CORNER
Jewish mythology says that when God created the universe, He left a tiny corner of it unfinished. Opinion is divided on why, but everyone agrees that it’s a dangerous place full of monsters. Twelve-year-old Miriam neither knows nor cares—she’s too busy preparing for her Bat Mitzvah, wrestling with whether she even wants to be Jewish–until a peculiar angel appears, whisking her, her two best friends, and her worst frenemy off to this monstrous land with a single mission: finish the Unfinished Corner. From writer Dani Colman and artist Rachel “Tuna” Petrovicz, UNFINISHED CORNER is a heartwarming middle grade adventure that gives voice to kids of all backgrounds grappling with the legacy of cultural identity.
