And all this comes alongside original graphic novels Titan from Francois Vigneault, Dead Dudes by Christopher Sebela and Ben Sears, and Tea Dragon Tapestry by Katie O'Neill and Smoove City by Kenny Keil. Here's the full solicit.

Thrown into confusion about her path in life, the shy and reserved Minette finds that the more she opens her heart to others, the more clearly she can see what was always inside.

Ray, Ronnie, Vinnie, and Mikey (A.K.A. Smoove City) are four besties dreaming of boy band stardom. At the mall food court, there's lots of time for daydreaming.

Their dream is finally coming true… But it could cost them a lot more than a slice of food court pizza.
Deeply inspired by the music and culture of New Jack Swing, Smoove City is a funny and heartfelt story about fame, friendship, and why all that glitters ain't double platinum.
