SDCC 2018: Lion Forge and Know Yourself Announce Debian Perl

Days before the opening of the exhibit hall at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Lion Forge has revealed a new series for middle-grade readers developed in conjunction with computer scientist and entrepreneur Tim Howe’s Know Yourself, the Oakland, California–based public benefit corporation dedicated to self-literacy in early education.

Megalopolis used to be the city hub for all the makers, doers, and dreamers. It was a better time according to Debian Perl, a technomancer known for her out-of-date computer programming skills. Now the city streets are filled with “Egg-heads,” those in thrall to the ease and simplicity of new technology as opposed to Debian’s way of doing things. Digits is one of those Egg-heads. She is a young social media guru and knows her way around all the newest, latest technology.

Debian and Digits cross paths when they both stumble across a one-hundred-year-old lost robot named Ray-Bot. They soon learn that Ray-Bot’s CPU was suspiciously overclocked, leaving him unable to perform basic functions and commands. To find out where the robot came from, Debian must teach Digits everything she knows about computer coding and programming. Along their journey to bring Ray-Bot home, they begin piecing together the mysterious puzzle about his malfunction and uncover some sinister secrets.

Debian Perl: Digital Detective is a five-book series in which middle-grade readers will join Debian and Digits on mystery adventures all while building practical knowledge of coding, algorithms, algebra, and logical problem solving. The comic features art by Katie Longua and co-written by Lauren Davis and Mel Hilario. The first volume in the series is due to arrive in summer 2019.

Lion Forge Reveals Jeff Weigel’s Quantum Mechanics, the First Title Under the Caracal Imprint

Lion Forge has unveiled plans for the first title under the Caracal banner. Jeff Weigel‘s Quantum Mechanics will be the first comic to be released up the comic publisher’s imprint. The imprint is aimed at readers ages 8 to 12.

Growing up on her father’s salvage yard on a remote, barren asteroid, Rox has always wanted to experience more of the galaxy. Her best pal, the natural mechanic Zam, has always wanted better spacecraft to tinker on. When a space hauler arrives one day with a broken tractor beam, the kids think this might be just their chance to earn some money to repair one of the junked spaceships and set out on adventures. But when it turns out the captain of the hauler is none other than the dread space pirate known as Red Myk, adventure is exactly what they get!

After being kidnapped, Rox and Zam encounter a group of down-on-their-luck space truckers, forced into piracy after a shipping conglomerate took control of a wormhole and effectively put an end to transport operations in that region of space. A final confrontation with the shipping conglomerate will force the two to make decisions and alliances that will directly affect the future of their quadrant of space.

This fun new book will be released in finer comic shops everywhere on October 10, and in bookstores on October 23.

Lion Forge Has Launched a Middle-Grade Imprint Caracal

Lion Forge has been making lots of changes in recent years recognizing new trends in the comic market and adjusting properly with such launches as their CubHouse imprint and Catalyst Prime superhero line of comics. The publisher will now provide a reading road map for parents and educators with a new imprint focused on middle-grade aged children. Caracal is a new imprint announced today under the Lion Forge umbrella, alongside CubHouse (early readers) and Roar (young adult).

Just like its namesake inspiration, the Caracal imprint for middle-grade readers is fast-paced, agile, leaps high to catch fresh concepts and ideas, and hunts down the best stories! Caracal will offer books for readers ages 8–12 focused on preteen characters in relatable situations across genres, including age-appropriate superheroes, science fiction, and fantasy. Select existing titles under the CubHouse banner will see a revised trade dress in second printings, and initial offerings through Caracal will begin publishing later in the year. Previously announced titles and series include:

  • Encounter by Chris Giarrusso, Art Baltazar, and Franco
  • The Wormworld Saga by Daniel Lieske
  • Sheets by Brenna Thummler
  • Glint by Sam Sattin and Ian McGinty

The focus of CubHouse will remain to publish graphic literature with the unique visual literacy development of young children in mind. Initial offerings include: picture books, hybrid or transitional graphic books, and early comic books, which have a limited number of panels on each page in a predictable sequence with corresponding word balloons.

Additional upcoming titles under the Caracal banner will be announced later this week, in correspondence with the publisher’s appearance at BookExpo America in New York City.
