Writer Melanie Gillman (As the Crow Flies) and artist Katy Farina (The Amazing World of Gumball) are teaming up for the start of a new series of adventures for the entire gang. Based on Cartoon Network’s Emmy Award-nominated animated series created by Rebecca Sugar about a boy with magical powers who goes on adventures with The Crystal Gems, a team of beings who safeguard the universe. The show is approaching its fourth season and has earned millions of fans of all ages worldwide. In this kickoff issue, Steven, Lapis, and Peridot rescue a baby songbird on the ground outside the barn and work together to reunite it with its mother.
The Other Side is a queer paranormal romance comic anthology. It will be a 200 page long, black and white, soft-bound book, featuring 19 gorgeous stories by 24 creators. It showcases a wide variety of styles, mediums, and approaches to the genre. Each story delivers on a promise: bring one new story about unambiguously queer characters in love and paranormality into the world. The book is carefully curated and thoughtfully edited, with beautiful artwork throughout.
The Other Side Anthology is co-edited by anthology veterans Melanie Gillman and Kori Michele Handwerker. It will be printed in the United States and contributing artists are paid for their work.
