September 2022: News flash! Sana Takeda has been nominated for a Ringo Award! Monstress Vol 7 is almost out! And our new book, The Night Eaters, will be released in just one month. In fact, io9 posted has an exclusive preview, with a few words from Sana and myself.
September 2022: Teny Issakhanian’s work on Wingbearer has been accepted into the 2022 Original Art exhibit of the Society of Illustrators! Every year, the Society of Illustrators in NYC hosts an Original Art Show featuring the best of book illustration from titles published in the past year. This is a huge honor, and I’m thrilled for her.
August 2022: Night Eaters has received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly! “Takeda’s delicate inks and glowing watercolors are equally adept at capturing the minutiae of domestic life and a terrifying supernatural underworld of monstrous skeletons, living shadows, hooded figures, and possessed dolls. Her art seems lit from within, turning from sunny and reassuring in one scene to submerged and sinister the next. Fans of stylish contemporary horror comics series like Harrow County and Something Is Killing the Children will eat it all up, then hungrily await the next volume.”
August 2022: Sana Takeda took home an Eisner for best interior artist for Monstress! Hooray!
July 2022: Night Eaters has been listed as one of Publishers Weekly’s top ten anticipated graphic novel releases of the Fall!

Much love and thanks to everyone for these wonderful nominations and accolades.
March 2022: Sana Takeda and I are so happy to announce a new trilogy we’re collaborating on — The Night Eaters — an Asian American horror and urban fantasy.

March 2022: Wingbearer is out! In its first couple weeks it has hit the Indie Bestseller list, the Publisher’s Weekly Bestseller list, and has received some lovely reviews.
