Skybound Comet, the new original graphic novel imprint aimed at Young Adult (Ages 12+) and Middle Grade (Ages 8-12) audiences, has announced its star-studded lineup of all-new OGNs launching in Spring and Summer 2023 everywhere books are sold.
Skybound Comet will kick off its 2023 slate in February with Scurry (Diamond Code MAR228456, ISBN: 978-1-5343-2436-7), the new Middle Grade graphic novel debut from webcomics superstar Mac Smith, marking the first-ever collection of the smash-hit webcomic in a complete volume. This will be followed in April 2023 by Outpost Zero (Diamond Code MAR228457, ISBN: 978-1-5343-2437-4), which collects the acclaimed YA series from the superstar team of Eisner Award winner Sean Kelley McKeever and Alexandre Tefenkgi in a single volume.

Scurry depicts a world in which humanity has disappeared, but danger is still lurking around every corner for a colony of house mice struggling to survive a long and strange winter. When Wix, the colony’s best scout, embarks on a perilous journey to find food and shelter, he suddenly finds himself lost and alone in the forest. To find his way home, the little mouse must navigate dangerous new threats, strange new creatures, and a destiny he never expected.
Wix makes his first comic book appearance in Skybound X #25, available in comic shops and at digital providers on July 20, 2022.
Welcome to Outpost Zero: the smallest town in the universe and home to Alea, raised in an artificial environment on an uninhabitable frozen planet that was never meant to support human life…and yet, life has gone on. School, friends, the fights every Friday night—there’s plenty to distract Alea, yet she’s sure there’s something else out there. And when tragedy strikes, Alea vows to uncover the truth…even if it upends her world forever.
In Ava’s Demon Book One: Reborn, a young, shy girl named Ava discovers that the demon who haunts her is actually the spirit of an ancient alien queen named Wrathia. The two form a powerful pact—in exchange for a better life, Ava must help Wrathia seek revenge against TITAN, the godlike being who destroyed her empire. To aid in the fight, Ava must assemble Wrathia’s most trusted warriors and their host lifeforms. The only problem is, she doesn’t know how to find them…
Clementine Book Two and Sea Serpent’s Heir Book Two will be released in 2023, with more information and art to be revealed soon.
