This story by Brigid Alverson on kids comics news at NYCC 11 is chock-a-block full of newsy bits, but we’ll just spotlight the Oni news here:
Oni Press announced that it will be republishing Ted Naifeh’s Courtney Crumrin graphic novels in a new, full-color edition to celebrate the publisher’s 15th anniversary. The series will start with Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things in April. Their panel also featured two new children’s graphic novels that are due out in the next two weeks: Power Lunch, by J. Torres and Dean Trippe, and Sketch Monsters, by Vinny Navarette and Josh Williamson. Power Lunch is about a boy who gains superpowers from the foods he eats—carrots enable him to see through walls, for instance—while Sketch Monsters is about a girl whose doodles about her moods come to life and run amok.
