Katie O'Neill Announces New All-Ages OGN At Oni Press For 2018: Aquicorn Cove

New Zealand cartoonist Katie O'Neill is the creator of The Tea Dragon Society, the webcomic just released by Oni Press as a printed edition (and soon to be a tabletop game from Oni), as well as the award-winning Princess Princess Ever After. And she's just revealed her plans for next year: a new all-ages graphic novel, to be published by Oni in October 2018. Called Aquicorn Cove, the description of the book is as follows:

"When Lana and her father return to their seaside hometown to help clear the debris of a storm, the last thing she expects is to discover a colony of Aquicorns—magical seahorse-like residents of the coral reef. As she explores the damaged town and the fabled undersea palace, Lana learns that while she cannot always count on adults to be the guardians she needs, she herself is capable of finding the strength to protect both the ocean, and her own happiness."

O'Neill said in a press release:

"As a kid I was obsessed with books about marine biology and ocean creatures. It felt like such a magical world! In this story I wanted to combine aquatic fantasy elements with the feelings I get from the tiny seaside villages in my home country of New Zealand. Marine conservation has always been extremely important here, and I wanted to explore the point of view of a child living in a world where the actions—or inactions—of her guardians already have had environmental consequences, and she must find her own strength in order to protect what's important to her."

And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
