The titles announced are Wrassle Castle, written by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover, Bonding, written by Matthew Erman and drawn by Emily Pearson, and Unfinished Corner, written by Dani Coleman. These three titles will see release throughout 2019 and 2020.

A publishing label of Vault Comics, Myriad has a distinct focus on middle grade (MG) and young adult (YA) stories that are delivered in a wide range of unique unique sizes and formats. Myriad is headed by Vault Editor-In-Chief Adrian Wassel and Vice President of Branding & Design Tim Daniel.

The new imprint is to give young readers their own heroes and represents a “seismic shift in readers’ attitudes and expectations” when it comes to format and content.

Wrassle Castle is a middle grade title written by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. Paul and Colleen previously collaborated on Banana Sunday and the Eisner-winning Bandette.

Lydia also secretly trains with her brother, John Gator-Chomp, a high-ranking wrasslin instructor. Lydia idolizes her brother—until he’s arrested for stealing one of the Legendary Wrasslin Folios! A crime he DID commit! But…why? Lydia believes the only way she can learn the truth, and more importantly save her brother, is to enter and win the Grand Wrasslin Tournament.

They meet and strike up a good rapport, learning about each other, friendship, and how to deal with the slug-like parasites that have infected humanity. Bonding is a funny, quirky, and honest look at love, in a world where people wear their anxieties, not on their sleeves, but on their chests like big ol’ leeches.

Unfinished Corner is a YA title written by Dani Colman. Dani is a powerful new voice, writer and editor known for essays in Image Comics’ ODY-C and Black Jack Ketchum, and for the story “All Thumbs” in the Femme Magnifique anthology.The art team on Unfinished Corner will be announced soon.

Jewish mythology has it that when God created the universe, He left a tiny corner of it unfinished. Opinion is divided on why, but everyone agrees that the Unfinished Corner is a dangerous place full of monsters. Twelve-year-old Miriam neither knows, nor cares about the Unfinished Corner. She’s too busy preparing for her Bat Mitzvah, wrestling with whether she even wants to be Jewish—until an angel appears, whisking her and her best friends Avi and David off to this crazy and monstrous land with a single mission: Finish the Unfinished Corner.

Banana Sunday, the classic story by Eisner Award-winning Bandette co-creators Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover, is now presented in full color, with a brand-new introduction and bonus materials! Kirby Steinberg is having a bit of trouble fitting into her new school. Sure, there’s the usual problems associated with being from “somewhere else,” but this time the new kid also happens to be the guardian for three talking primates. Chuck, the professorial orangutan. Knobby, the love-stricken spider monkey. Go-Go, the befuddled golden gorilla. These primates have learned to speak, thanks to the scientific processes of Kirby’s father. Or have they? What’s their real story? That’s what Nickels—Kirby’s new best friend and unfortunately dedicated school reporter—would like to discover. Can Kirby find time to develop a relationship with Martin, the dashing nerd? Steer clear of Skye, the high school’s #1 pillar of arrogance? Keep Knobby, Chuck and Go-Go from causing untold catastrophes? And, above all, will Kirby be able to hide the real origin of these three simians from Nickels? Oh, probably not.

Banana Sunday’ Is Back—In Color!

Creators Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover have teamed up with colorist Rian Sygh for an all-new color edition of the beloved all-ages fantasy/humor book, Banana Sunday, available October 24th, only from Oni Press.

Oni Press Launches a Webcomics Hub

Oni Press has launched a new free webcomics hub for all ages. Learn something, share something, and be a part of a community that loves reading and sharing comics at webcomics.onipress.com. Available now are Spectacle (Megan Rose Gedris), Kim Reaper (Sarah Graley), and their most recent release, Draw Out the Vote, by a variety of creators handpicked by Oni Press editor, Robin Herrera!

Spectacle (Young Adult)
Fan-favorite webcomic creator Megan Rose Gedris (Yu+Me Dream) crafts a compelling tale of magic, deception, and wonder in this stunningly illustrated graphic novel about the bond between sisters. Pragmatic engineer Anna works as a psychic in the Samson Brothers Circus, but she doesn’t believe in anything supernatural—until her twin sister Kat is murdered and comes back as a very demanding ghost. Sharing a room with her sister was hard, but now they’re sharing a body while trying to identify the killer. With few leads, a troupe full of secretive folk, and strange paranormal occurrences popping up around the circus, solving the case seems near impossible. But the murderer in their midst may be the least of their problems…

Kim Reaper (Young Adult)
All-star cartoonist Sarah Graley (Our Super Adventure) brings you the supernatural queer rom-com Kim Reaper! Like most university students, Kim works a part-time job to make ends meet. Unlike most university students, Kim’s job is pretty cool: she’s a grim reaper, tasked with guiding souls into the afterlife. Unaware of the ghoulish drama she’s about to step into, Kim’s classmate Becka finally gathers up the courage to ask Kim on a date! But when she falls into a ghostly portal and interrupts Kim at her job, she sets off a chain of events that will pit the two of them against angry cat-dads, vengeful zombies, and perhaps even the underworld itself. But if they work together, they just might make it… and maybe even get a smooch in the bargain.

Draw Out the Vote (Non-fiction)
Voting is our civic duty, and Oni Press wants to make it as easy as possible for people to register and vote in 2018. Fifty-two different artists explore what voting, politics, and living in American mean to them in this collection of black-and-white comics. Cartoonists from each state (plus Washington, DC and Puerto Rico) were invited to contribute to the project, which Oni hopes will increase voter awareness and encourage comics readers to vote in the November midterm elections. Included with each comic are instructions on how to register to vote in each state—as well as what to do to actually vote, and other things to note that may affect your ability to vote.

You will find the release of more comics, featuring the classic kids comic Banana Sunday by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover on October 5th, and the action-packed war story Guerillas by Brahm Revel on October 8th, with even more awesome webcomics to come!
