Magdalene Visaggio will team up with her Kim & Kim artist Claudia Aguirre for Morning in America, which will be published by Oni Press.
The series will take place in 1983 in Tucker, Ohio. After a new factory opens up, strange things begin occurring including a number of disappearances. The town eventually comes under siege from a number of monsters. In order to protect the town, a group of teen girl delinquents will team up to discover what’s happening and save the lives of the townspeople.
Visaggio was excited about the opportunity:
“Oni has been putting out some of my favorite comics for years, from Scott Pilgrim onward. And I’m absolutely thrilled that Morning in America is launching there. This book is extremely close to my heart, and Claudia is one of the dearest people in the world to me, so I hope our excite comes through in this dark, hopefully-funny story about monsters, friendship, and the end of the world.”
Aguirre added her own thoughts:
“Drawing this comic has been a pleasure. I absolutely adore working with Mags to create truly heart-wrenching yet fun stories, and our lovely friends at Oni Press have always been amazing. I hope everyone loves Morning in America as much as we love making it.”
