Oni Press To Publish LySandra Vuong’s Webtoon Smash Hit Covenant

With more than 21 million reads and over 630,000 followers, Covenant is one of the most popular comics on Webtoon and the remarkable comics debut of LySandra Vuong, also known as Explodikid. The critically acclaimed, fan-favorite series follows a powerful exorcist with no faith in God, who is tasked to protect a seemingly normal human from rising demonic forces. The series features a slow-burn queer romance and explores religious faith, the weight of destiny, and what it means to be good in a world plagued by demons. Oni Press will publish the smash hit in print for the first time with the first of three volumes being released in April 2024, featuring an all-new, never-before-seen cover by Vuong.

In a world where priests are decked out in holy tattoos and brandish machine guns in the face of demons, a powerful exorcist and a mysterious boy cross paths…in a college classroom. Erza’s faith is waning when God intervenes and sends him on a mission to protect Sunny, an outwardly normal human, from demonic forces. Looks can be deceiving, however, as Sunny proves to have hidden secrets and a bloody past nipping at his heels. Between Erza’s sunny sarcasm, and Sunny’s closed-off distant demeanor, the two struggle to find any common ground to bridge the gap. Yet, as much as the two bicker and retain distance, neither can help but be drawn to the other. With his church under scrutiny and the threat of war on the horizon, will Ezra find his conviction in time to keep Sunny safe? Will Sunny even accept his help? Or will they both suffer the consequences?

The first volume of the three-volume supernatural action webcomic collects episodes 1–18 of the hit Webtoon comic Covenant beautifully reformatted into 6×9. Covenant will be available in stores April 24, 2024.
