CONFETTI REALMS (OGN)

Release Date: Oct. 31, 2023
Synopsis: On Halloween night, when the moon is full, teenagers get up to mischief. But when an encounter with a giant, sentient puppet in a graveyard sends four teens to a mysterious dimension called the Confetti Realms, they must overcome obstacles in their own friendships–and collect the debted teeth owed to the puppet–in order to make their way home. But the allure of staying in a fantasy world is a hard one to beat, and going home to their normal lives is starting to sound less and less appealing for some. Will these friends return home?
Featuring a diverse cast of characters, this Tim Burton-esque, comedic, modern, and high-energy story is written by Harvey Award-winner Nadia Shammas, with art by Karnessa and colors by Hackto Oshiro.

“Confetti Realms is a deeply personal story for me, and a world I needed to make for myself during the pandemic. I put some of my most personal teenager memories into this, but also a frog that robs people at knifepoint. It was also a dream to make something so intimately focused on the emotional lives of alt queer kids of color. I honestly hope readers just enjoy the world we’ve made, and these messy kids who are doing their best.”
-Nadia Shammas, Author
“This comic is like a weird vinaigrette of my favorite stuff. It has a little bit of everything: friendship, teeth, frog crimes, romance, catboys, more teeth and even a handsome automaton with the tumblr sexyman vibes.”
Confetti Realms is now available for pre-order on the official Maverick website, and will be available at your favorite bookstore, local comic shop, and digital comic reader on October 31st, 2023!
