LITTLE WITCHES MAGIC IN CONCORD

ONI PRESS SOLICITATIONS BEGIN HERE
(W) Leigh Dragoon (A/CA) Leigh Dragoon
A charming and magical graphic novel based on Louisa May Alcott's Little Women!
Jo, Beth, Amy, and Meg March are four sisters living in Concord with their parents-Father, who's tending to soldiers fighting in the Civil War, and Marmee, who teaches the girls simple but effective witchcraft. The Marches have to keep their craft quiet, as there are many in Concord who see magic in a bad light-especially after things have begun disappearing.
When Mr. Laurence, a witchfinder, moves in next door to investigate the missing objects, the girls fear for their livelihood. But he turns out to be a kind old man, and his grandson, Laurie, quickly befriends the Marches. As the cold winter blusters on, the girls continue their education, even as missing objects soon turn into missing people.
Things take a turn for the worse when Jo and Laurie try investigating on their own, and a dangerous storm takes hold of Concord. There's powerful magic at play here-stronger than anything the Marches, or even Laurie, has ever seen before.
Can they hope to defeat it? Or has the magic already become too strong for them to fight against?

SUPER FUN SEXY TIMES GN VOL 01 (MR)


(W) Meredith McClaren (A/CA) Meredith McClaren
Cartoonist Meredith McClaren (Hinges) tells five short, sexy stories featuring superheroes, supervillains, sidekicks, and the people who love them. Showing consent and character-driven erotic relationships, Super Fun Sexy Times answers the age-old question: what happens when the mask comes off?
Two sidekicks on opposite sides get stuck in an underground lab together, and find a great way to pass the time. A tactician and superhero discuss their desires, limits, and kinks before their first time, and perhaps get a little too excited in the process. A pair of supervillains explore gender and sex together, while growing closer in their relationship. Lesbian heroes try out a kinky roleplaying scenario, and discover how to make it work for both of them. And an exhausted assassin relaxes after a long day with the kind (yet firm) attentions of his husband.
Told with care, sex-positivity, and humor, and featuring a wide variety of sexualities and bodies, Super Fun Sexy Times aims to create an erotic reading experience that lives up to its name!
