Oni Press announced the September 2023 release of Quinnelope and the Cookie King Catastrophe, for middle-grade comic book readers.
In THE COOKIE KING CATASTROPHE, Quinnelope wakes up one morning to learn all the cookies in her kingdom have gone missing. The bakery and grocery store aisles are full of cakes but NO COOKIES. What is a cookie-obsessed queen supposed to do?! Solve the mystery of the cookie catastrophe, of course! Along with her dutiful butler, Bub, and loyal companion, Star, the trio set out on a mission to find the missing cookies and restore these tasty treats to Pleasant Towne once again. But their quest isn’t as easy as it sounds… They’ll need to battle through a cookie-dough volcano, confront the chocolate chipmunk mountain, face off against egg-splosive enemies, and more in order to track down the missing Cookie King. Will Quinnelope be able to bring the Cookie King and his delicious cookies back to her kingdom, or will she be doomed to eat crummy cakes forever?
“Quinnelope, Bub and Star are the focus of our series,” said writer HF Brownfield in a press release from Oni Press. “We wanted these characters to be relatable and hilarious. Quinnelope is big-hearted, wacky and imaginative with main-character energy while Bub is the ever-nervous planner and Star is the carefree, snarky commentator of the group. There’s something kids and parents alike can have a laugh over with this goody crew at the helm of our story.”
Quinnelope and the Cookie King Catastrophe is created by HF Brownfield and Kayla Coombs, and will arrive on September 19, 2023.
