This fall, Abrams ComicArts will publish the first volume in The Night Eaters trilogy, an all-new graphic novel horror series from Eisner Award–winning and bestselling author Marjorie Liu and illustrator Sana Takeda, the creative team behind the New York Times–bestselling series Monstress. Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda have crafted a wild and wicked tale that will leave readers hungry for more.
In The Night Eaters: She Eats The Night (Abrams ComicArts; October 11, 2022; U.S. $24.99; Hardcover with jacket), Chinese American twins Milly and Billy are having a tough time. On top of the multiple failures in their personal and professional lives, they’re struggling to keep their restaurant afloat. Luckily, their parents, Ipo and Keon, are in town for their annual visit. Having immigrated from Hong Kong before the twins were born, Ipo and Keon have supported their children through thick and thin and are ready to lend a hand—but they’re starting to wonder, has their support made Milly and Billy incapable of standing on their own?
When Ipo forces them to help her clean up the house next door—a hellish and run-down ruin that was the scene of a grisly murder—the twins are in for a nasty surprise. A night of terror, gore, and supernatural mayhem reveals that there is much more to Ipo and her children than meets the eye.
The Night Eaters: She Eats The Night has an announced first printing of 100,000 and will be supported by a robust publicity and marketing campaign, including national media and advertising, author events, and promotions at San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con.
