The Black Mage, Morning In America, Unplugged and Unpopular, in Oni Press' August 2019 Solicits

The Black Mage by Daniel Barnes and D.J. Kirkland leads Oni Press' August 2019 solicitations – but is only actually out in October. That's true of the books that follow it. Some big bioks just need a bigger production lead in… The suggestion is, get in early.

Here are Oni's full solicitations for August 2019…

(W) Daniel Barnes (A/CA) D.J. Kirkland

When St. Ivory Academy, a historically white wizarding school, opens its doors to its first-ever black student, everyone believes that the wizarding community is finally taking its first crucial steps toward inclusivity. Or is it? When Tom Token, the beneficiary of the school's "Magical Minority Initiative," begins uncovering weird clues and receiving creepy texts on his phone, he and his friend, Lindsay, stumble into a conspiracy that dates all the way back to the American Civil War, and could cost Tom his very soul.

Created by powerhouse team Magdalene Visaggio (Eternity Girl) and Claudia Aguirre (Kim & Kim), Morning in America follows the Sick Sisters, a group of friends and small-time delinquents who may be the only people standing between their suffocatingly small town and complete apocalyptic destruction. The Sisters know there's something wrong in Tucker, Ohio-and they also know that the authorities aren't doing anything about it. When the girls take the investigation into their own hands, they run into wild conspiracy theories, abandoned homes… and something that screeches in the night. At the end of the world, four girls with bikes and baseball bats are there to stand in the way.

UNPLUGGED AND UNPOPULAR GN

JUN191844

(W) Mat Heagerty (A/CA) Tintin Pantoia

After Erin Song's parents ban her from using her phone, TV, Internet and all her screens, she soon discovers mysterious, strange creatures and must foil their plot to take over Earth in this hilarious sci-fi graphic novel for tweens.
Erin Song lives in a digital world. Everyone has a phone, a tablet, a computer-more screens than you can count. Even with a world of information at her fingertips, Erin can't figure out the secret to popularity at her clique-y junior high school. So when uber-popular Wendy asks for help cheating on a test, Erin jumps at the opportunity. This could be her big break! Unfortunately, she gets caught, and her parents ban her from all her devices. Suddenly, Erin Song is the only girl in the world who's not allowed to look at a screen.
And that's when Erin notices something funny: small, furry aliens making humans disappear with a weird device Erin's never seen before. No one else notices them, though-except Erin's grandmother and two old men who run the local library. They've discovered that the aliens are using screens to control the human race, tricking them into thinking they aren't really there-and that anyone who's been abducted never existed.

Now it's up to Erin and her grandmother to save the day! But without technology on their side, do they stand a chance?
