Could 'My Boyfriend Is A Bear' From Oni Press Be The Next Game Of Thrones? + More 2018 Solicits

No, you didn't read that wrong. A comic called My Boyfriend Is A Bear by Pamela Ribon and Cat Farris is making its way to Oni Press next Spring, and it's about exactly what it sounds like – a woman who meets a bear on a hiking trip and falls in love.

With incest helping to propel Game of Thrones to unprecedented success on television, could the bestiality help make My Boyfriend is a Bear into the next pop culture phenomenon? At least, it should earn the graphic novel a movie or TV deal.

My Boyfriend is a Bear is one of five new graphic novels coming in Spring of 2018 unveiled today on THR. Other offerings include Sci-Fu, a comic by Yehudi Mercado set in the 1980s about a rapper and his pals who are kidnapped by aliens because their music is so dope, it can save the planet. The Altered History of Willow Sparks by Tara O'Connor about a high school student who finds a book that allows her to alter reality and uses it to improve her social standing. Archival Quality by Ivy Noelle Weir and Steenz is a supernatural story about "growing up, relationships, and mental health that is equal parts scary, heartfelt, and funny." Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom by Terry Blas, Molly Muldoon, and Matthew Seely is a murder mystery set at a weight loss camp.

The Altered History of Willow Sparks hits stores in January. Archival Quality and Sci-Fu hit stores in March. My Boyfriend is a Bear and Dead Weight will be out in April.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
