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.
