Lion Forge Comics has announced the coming release of Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu’s Mooncakes, the queer Chinese-American fantasy romance trade paperback coming in October 2019.
“Mooncakes is a labor of love. We set out to tell a story of reunion—two childhood crushes who find each other again to find out whether their friendship could be something more,” said the co-creators of Mooncakes.“Nova and Tam’s love thrives in a rich, vibrant world of magic, demons, and elder witches, and their journey is a reflection of all we value as creators. We couldn’t be more thrilled that Lion Forge is releasing it in print, and we are so excited to share Nova and Tam’s story with the world!”
Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.
One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.
Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.
Mooncakes started as an online series and is being collected by Lion Forge for release on October 2, 2019 for comic book stores, and on October 15, 2019 in bookstores.
