Cait May and Trevor Bream Have Another Kind of Graphic Novel

Cait May is an illustrator, published in The Atlantic, Vengeful Ghost, and Cryptid Culture Magazine who describes herself as a "Balti-Moron, purveyor of poisonous plants, and absolute super nerd. She is obsessed with cryptozoology, D&D, ghost stories, and all things that go bump in the night and who "wants to make comics that appeal to all ages and help readers face the crazy world we live in using their personal superpowers." You can see her work here.  

Trevor Bream is a graduate from the University of Baltimore for game design writer who says that they want to "tell stories that appeal to all, especially the queer community".  Together Trevor and Cait created the webcomic Irregular about six children deemed "monsters" who run away from adults who more closely fit that description, which ran until late 2018. Since then, lining together in Baltimore, they have been busy taking Irregular and finding a new way to publish it, as a graphic novel from a big proper publisher and everything.

That has let to Cait May and Trevor Bream selling two graphic novel products to Rose Pleuler at HarperAlley. The first, Another Kind is a YA graphic novel about six cryptid kids who search for a new place to call home, as something sinister lurks in the shadows, which pretty much sounds like Irregular to me. They will be followed by another, unnamed graphic novel. Another Kind will be published in the autumn of next year. Claire Draper at the Bent Agency negotiated the deal for both her clients.

Here's a brief look at Another Kind when it was known as Irregular. You can read the whole thing from the prelude onwards, right here. Seriously, we're in shutdown, what else are you up to?
