  • The Marble Queen

    The Marble Queen

    A sapphic YA graphic novel with sword fighting, political intrigue and magic where the princess needs a marriage alliance for the welfare of her kingdom, but she unknowingly accepts a proposal from a mysterious country, having come not from the prince, but his sister.

    The Marble Queen is a YA fantasy graphic novel that’s the political drama of Nimona meets the heartfelt romance of The Princess and the Dressmaker, but this time in a sapphic romance surrounded by a mist of magic.

    Princess Amelia’s kingdom, Marion, is in shambles after months of their trade routes being ravaged by pirates. Now, it seems the only option left for her to save it is through a marriage alliance. When she gets an exorbitant offer from the royalty of Iliad—a country shrouded in mystery—Amelia accepts without question and leaves her home to begin a new life. But she lands on Iliad’s shores to find that her betrothed isn’t the country’s prince, but the recently coronated Queen Salira.

    Shocked, Amelia tries to make sense of her situation and her confused heart: Salira has awakened strange new feelings inside her, but something dark hides behind the Queen’s sorrowful eyes. Amelia must fight the demons of her own anxiety disorder before she can tackle her wife’s, all while war looms on the horizon.

    The Marble Queen is a queer YA fantasy graphic novel due out on March 5, 2024. Author Anna Kopp and illustrator Gabrielle Kari created a sapphic story with swords, magic, and a marriage of convenience and alliance. And the cover, my gosh. Readers who have accessed early copies say that the portrayal of Princess Amelia’s anxiety is especially well done, and that the story is a great mix of action and drama.

  • Covenant

    Covenant

    Discover Lysandra Vuong’s hit supernatural action Webtoon Covenant in print for the first time ever.

    “If you need a comic that blends action fantasy with mythology, comedy, and punk gothic fashion, Covenant is wildly enjoyable.” -Women Write About Comics

    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??

    From debut creator LySandra Vuong comes the first volume of the supernatural action webcomic that explores religious faith, a slow burn queer romance, the weight of destiny, and what it means to be good in a world plagued by demons.

    This volume collects episodes 1–18 of the hit WEBTOON comic Covenant .

    Covenant by LySandra Vuong is being published on April 16, 2024, and collects episodes 1-18 of the original WEBTOON comic by the same name.

  • Boyfriends. Volume Two

    Boyfriends. Volume Two

    Boy meets boy . . . meets boy . . . meets boy!

    It’s the start of senior year in college, and Jock, Goth, Nerd, and Prep are officially boyfriends! With the support of cute boyfriends, school should be a breeze . . . right? With their powers combined, the polycule might just be able to talk Nerd out of overloading his schedule and help Goth finally learn what a credit is.

    Through navigating the adventures of dating life, the boyfriends come to understand themselves and each other in new and profound ways. Their polyamorous relationship continues to blossom, and that means learning about everybody’s quirks and finding new ways to show their love for one another. And…occasionally stealing one another’s clothes.

    The boys support Jock at his football games and hold an intervention for Prep when he gets wayyyy into a cozy video game. Everyday tasks like laundry, groceries, and cooking take on a new charm when the boyfriends are together. Silly bets, adventures in fan fiction, and a sweet visit home make for a very memorable semester.

    Plus, the guys make some new friends and realize they’re not the only queer polycule on campus…meet the Girlfriends! With the help of some Sapphic wisdom, maybe the boyfriends will be able to figure out how to four-way kiss.

  • Lore Olympus, Volume Six

    Lore Olympus, Volume Six

    Author: Rachel Smythe
    Released:
    May 7, 2024 by
    Inklore
    Genre:
    Graphic Novel
    Series: Lore Olympus #6

    Witness what the gods do after dark in the sixth volume of a stylish and contemporary reimagining of one of the best-known stories in Greek mythology, featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes content from creator Rachel Smythe.

    “We have to make an example of her.”

    Chaos reigns in Olympus as Zeus publicly declares Persephone a traitor and issues a warrant for her arrest. But Hades defies his brother’s decree, sheltering Persephone in the Underworld—and as the pair spend more time together, they are able to speak openly about their pasts. The goddess of spring admits the truth behind the bloody secret that led to Zeus’s ire, and the king of the Underworld shares the trauma he suffered at the hands of his power-hungry father, Kronos.

    But as Hades and Persephone’s relationship grows stronger, others begin to fall apart. The bond between Hades and Zeus is stretched to its limit, threatening to fracture the peace between their realms. Persephone and Artemis’s friendship hangs by a thread as the goddess of the hunt slowly uncovers the vile truth about her twin, Apollo. A line is being drawn in the heavens, putting everyone’s loyalties into question as all the gods are forced to choose sides.

    I have read and re-read Lore Olympus a few times, and there are some illustrations that are burned into my head. Volume Six is out on May 7, 2024, collecting episodes 127-152 of the comic, plus bonus extras in the print edition. And y’all, Barnes and Noble has a ridiculously cute exclusive cover. Look. At. This.

    BN Exclusive cover of Lore Olympus Vol 6 with Hades showing Kore a giant freaking library - a beauty and the beast disney reference I'm definitely here for.
