“I'm beyond excited for our new trade format,” Ellis said. “Knowing that readers will be consuming it all at once—trade volumes are so bingeable!—really lets us pry open the world of the book and tell the story of Moonstruck the way it deserves to be told.”
In SOME ENCHANTED EVENING, werewolf barista Julie and her magical pals are ready for the quiet life after their most recent brush with magical misfortune. But when they try to unwind at a party, a conniving fraternity of fairy bros throw a giant wrench into their evening plans. With one of their friends trapped in the frat house and the winter solstice—a notable night of magical mischief—looming ever closer, it's up to the amorous werewolves and gregarious centaur to save the day.
MOONSTRUCK, VOL. 2: SOME ENCHANTED EVENING will be available in February 2019.
