NYCC 2022: Abrams ComicArts previews their upcoming titles

NYCC put the spotlight on Abrams ComicArts and their amazing upcoming books.

Abrams ComicArts was on hand at NYCC this year to give fans a taste of what’s coming. A fantastic group of talented comics creators and editors discussed projects they’re excited about for this year and beyond at an Abrams-centric panel.

Mariko Tamaki started by previewing a few spring 2023 books from her Surely Books line, which she curates. She wants to the line to be “LGBTQ books by LGBTQ creators” that tell “queer family-oriented stories.” Tamaki described Archie Bongiovanni’s upcoming Mimosa as a book about the “complexities of what it means to be in the queer community.” Grand Slam Romance, coming May 2023 from Ollie Hicks and Emma Oosterhous, is about queer people in sports that Tamaki called “the rice crispy square of comic books… so dirty and delightful.” It’ll be the first ongoing series in the Surely Books line.

Fresh off his appearance at Marvel’s Voices panel was John Jennings. He is the curator of Abrams’s Megascope line, which focuses on creators of color across a wide variety of genres, like crime and science fiction. He previewed The Last Count of Monte Cristo, an afro-futurist retelling of Dumas’s classic novel set 400 years after the polar ice caps melt. It’s by creators Ayize Jama-Everett and Tristan Roach and is set to arrive in spring 2023.

Silver from animation legend Stephen Franck will be in comic and book shops at the end of the month.

It “takes place in the meta world of pulp” and will feature con men, capers, and vampires. Franck wonderfully described the comics industry by saying, “We’re in the business of telling the most relatable stories in the weirdest ways possible.” He then announced Silver Book 2 will arrive in the fall of 2023.

Marjorie Liu discussed her graphic novel The Night Eaters: She Eats the Night with Sana Takeda. The book is a horror book about a pair of twins in a haunted house, but the core of it centers on “secrets that immigrant families keep” and “trauma on that gets past down and lives in our bodies.” It features incredible artwork from Liu’s Monstress co-creator Sana Takeda whose art “has a new voice for The Night Eaters,” according to Liu. You can read about The Night Eaters by checking out our recap of yesterday’s Marjorie Liu spotlight panel.
