New Graphic Novels & Advance Soliciations
Ablaze Publishing has released details of their December 2022 and January 2023 graphic novels and comics.
ABLAZE delivers the launch of FAMILY TIME on December 7th. From the writer/creator of Image Comics Seven Sons, Robert Windom, and his eleven-year-old daughter, Lily, comes this fun, all-ages fantasy adventure. Featuring covers by Jae Lee, as well as Art Direction and cover art by Sanford Greene (Bitter Root), both Eisner-Award winning artists, and anime-inspired interior art by new talent and Greene-protégé, Asiah Fulmore (DC’s Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld).
Next comes the advance solicitation for the January 2023 release of ZEROCALCARE’S TENTACLES AT MY THROAT, the famed Italian creator, Zerocalcare’s second graphic novel, the one that made him stand out as an intelligent, delicate, merciless narrator when it comes to describing his own weaknesses, which could in fact be everyone's. An honest, touching, intense story with a bit of Stand By Me thrown in for good measure, it’s the book that launched his career. The book has been repeatedly reprinted since its initial release, surpassing sales of 120,000 copies. Zerocalcare’s original animated series “Tear Along the Dotted Line” debuted on Netflix WORLDWIDE November 17, 2021. Season Two is currently in production!
