Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group has announced the May 2021 release of The Sprite and the Gardener by Rii Abrego and Joe Whitt.
Long, long ago, sprites were the caretakers of gardens. Every flower was grown by their hand. But when humans appeared and began growing their own gardens, the sprites’ magical talents soon became a thing of the past. When Wisteria, an ambitious, kind-hearted sprite, starts to ask questions about the way things used to be, she begins to unearth her long-lost talent of gardening. But her newly honed skills might not be the welcome surprise she intends them to be.
Sometimes a stunning idea is born from a split second in time, such as it was for creator Rii Abrego: “The Sprite and the Gardener began as a single-sentence, self-contained comic page that was posted online and met with more enthusiasm than I could have ever imagined. I’m so thrilled to have been able to work with Joe to adapt it into something that’s new but still maintains those same core concepts: the desire to spread kindness, to channel love into action, and, of course, my own personal desire to draw lots and lots of flowers.”
The Sprite and the Gardener is scheduled to arrive at your LCS on May 5, 2021.
