AfterShock Comics has announced the debut of Seismic Press, a new imprint focused exclusively on groundbreaking content for readers in the 12-18 age range. Seismic Press will debut its first title, Rainbow Bridge, from creators Steve Orlando and Steve Foxe and illustrator Valentina Brancati, this coming August.
Seismic’s inaugural title, Rainbow Bridge, from creators Steve Orlando and Steve Foxe, is slated for debut in late summer and will focus on the story of Andy, a boy whose canine best friend passes away just before he enters high school, leaving him alone and rudderless. The day before school starts, when Andy is at his lowest, he visits Rocket’s grave and unexpectedly summons the Rainbow Bridge, a gateway to a wondrous world where pets discover their afterlife. With roles reversed, Andy is there to support his childhood guardian during one last epic adventure as Rocket embarks on a fantasy quest to find his lost littermate while ultimately giving Andy the confidence he needs as he enters his high school years.
Additional titles under the Seismic Press imprint will begin rolling forth at the start of 2022 and will include original works by How To Train Your Dragon’sRichard Ashley Hamilton and Ted Anderson. Plans for the line also include the repackaging of AfterShock series that have already demonstrated strong YA appeal, including The Lollipop Kids, written by Adam Glass and Aidan Glass with illustrations by Diego Yapur, and Oberon, written by Ryan Parrott and drawn by Milos Slavkovi.
