Rii Abrego will draw an Emerald City Comic Con 2019 exclusive cover of the first issue of MORNING IN AMERICA.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Join creators Magdalene Visaggio (Eternity Girl) and Claudia Aguirre (Kim & Kim) for a new, creepy comic series based in 1983. Oni Press brings you Morning in America, the much-anticipated girl gang tale that will see the light of day beginning March 6th.
A series of disappearances afflicts Tucker, Ohio following the opening of a mysterious new factory. But when the town finds itself under siege from strange monsters, it’s up to intrepid girl gang of no-account teen girl delinquents to try and figure out what’s happening—and save everyone’s lives before it’s too late.
“Oni has been putting out some of my favorite comics for years, from Scott Pilgrim onward,” said Magdalene Visaggio. “And I’m absolutely thrilled that Morning in America is launching there. This book is extremely close to my heart, and Claudia is one of the dearest people in the world to me, so I hope our excitement comes through in this dark, hopefully-funny story about monsters, friendship, and the end of the world.”
“Drawing this comic has been a pleasure,” said Claudia Aguirre. “I absolutely adore working with Mags to create truly heart-wrenching yet fun stories, and our lovely friends at Oni Press have always been amazing. I hope everyone loves Morning in America as much as we love making it.”
“I was so immediately drawn in by the atmosphere and style of Morning in America that it left me a bit starstruck!” said Rii Abrego. “I wanted to try to emulate that fun, exciting feeling a bit with this cover.”
This convention exclusive cover by Rii Abrego (Adventure Time, Rick and Morty™) debuts at Emerald City Comic Con 2019, where Magdalene Visaggio will also be in attendance. For additional press queries, please contact the Oni Press Director of Publicity, Melissa Meszaros, at email@example.com.
