"The mission of Embonpoint is to provide a publishing vehicle for new graphic novels. As writers and visual artists ourselves, we have experienced the hardship in getting our work to the public through the standard channels. Our initial projects stand a bit outside of the mainstream with characters and topics that challenge the status quo and don't necessarily fit inside any kind of box. And since we have no intention of changing our style or our message, we created Embonpoint!
We are working with writers and artists to create exciting, more progressive material that challenges societal ideals as well as satirical work with lighter tongue-in-cheek messages.
Our first project was released in early 2017. Blanc Noir, A Marabou Mule Mystery is a black and white detective story created by artist Mason Arrigo. It is a dark, twisted romp that gives a nod to the old gumshoe stories-with a little horror and science fiction thrown in for good measure. Follow Marabou in her ongoing adventures, Blanc Noir Deux and our latest 2019 release, Blanc Noir Ferox.
Do you believe in ghosts? Blanc Noir Ferox is our meatiest, most poignant issue yet. Marabou teams up with her old nemesis Alabaster Sconce to solve the mystery of the death of his beloved Aunt Cherry. What causes some families to fall apart? And what defines "family"? Watch the book trailer and get this issue! Next up-Marabou in space!
Our dystopian project is the graphic novel FATIZEN. This work is based on the prose novel Fatizen 24602 by Philip Barragan and published by Branch Hill Publications in 2015. FATIZEN: The Graphic Novel, Part I is illustrated by artist Mason Arrigo and colored by graphic artist Chris Link."
