PORTLAND, Ore. 05/15/2023 — The beloved, award winning series Octopus Pie by Meredith Gran will be collected into a handsome five volume box set featuring new wraparound artwork. The unique box design gives uniformity to differently sized volumes and will be available for longtime fans and new readers alike this September from Image Comics.
Since its decade-long run, Octopus Pie has been celebrated for the depth of its characters and its broad emotional resonance, and was cited as one of the “best comics of the 2010s” by The AV Club and called a “decade-long masterpiece” by Slate. The series is the recipient of two Ignatz awards and two NCS Reuben award nominations, and has been inducted into the Library of Congress' Webcomic Collection as a Title of Significance.
“I'm so glad to finally present these books as a set,” said Gran. “Like the series itself, each printed volume—born from chaos—has now found beauty and cohesion.”
The Octopus Pie story follows 20-something best friends Eve and Hanna as they navigate the ups and downs of city life—soul-sucking jobs, heart-stopping romances, and all the social trappings of Brooklyn's indie sleaze era.
Octopus Pie: The Complete Series Box Set (ISBN: 978-1534399709) will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, September 13 and independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo on Tuesday, September 19.
Octopus Pie is available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
