Chooseco, Oni-Lion Forge Partner To Launch Graphic Novel Line
Interactive book publisher Chooseco is partnering with indie comics publisher the Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group to launch a Choose Your Own Adventure graphic novel series in August 2021.
The first title to be released will be the classic Choose Your Own Adventure: Eighth Grade Witch from the creative team of E.L. Thomas, Andrew Gaska, Valerio Chiola, and Thiago Ribeiro, which will be released in August 2021. Eighth Grade Witch is the story of a new kid who finds himself in a ghoulish world of witches, ghosts, and nightmares. In this interactive tale no one path leads to the same destination, and readers will face choices that will either lead them to the light—or a gruesome end. Eighth Grade Witch will be followed by Journey Under the Sea
Chooseco is the publisher of the bestselling Choose Your Own Adventure interactive book Series which has sold millions of copies since it was launched in 2005. Independent graphic novel publishers Oni Press (originally launched in 1997) and Lion Forge (founded in 2012), merged in 2019 to form the Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group.
Oni-Lion Forge editor Desiree Rodriquez said, adapting these stories into graphic novels has been an “adventure in and of itself, and I hope readers unfamiliar with the originals like me can gain a new experience by reading them." "I'm thrilled to be able to bring the near endless fun of a classic Choose Your Own Adventure book to a new audience,” said Oni-Lion Forge senior editor Robert Meyers, “We've got some great titles lined up, and a few surprises as well."
