The press release follows:

Media Release -- Oni Press, the multiple Eisner and Harvey Award-winning publisher of groundbreaking comics and graphic novels since 1997, is proud to deliver your first look inside of EAT YOUR HEART OUT– a stunning new graphic novel from co-writers Terry Blas (Reptil, Steven Universe) Matty Newton (Regular Show) alongside debut artist Lydia Anslow (Disenchantment)! Kick off your Pride Month with Blanca as she learns to fight for herself, her friends, and her passion for fashion! Find EAT YOUR HEART OUT when it makes a statement in stores August 13th!

Blanca is running away. Away from her mother—the overbearing and strict Reina—and her mother's narrow idea of what shape Blanca's life should take. While Reina finds Blanca's dream of pursuing fashion design a wasteful flight of fancy, Blanca sees possibility . . . and she knows if she doesn't leave now, she might never. Of course, following your passion isn't easy, and when Blanca arrives in New York City without a job or a roof over her head, she's rescued by a kindly baker named Emile, who takes her in. With Emile comes his eclectic group of roommates, all living in the same brownstone, who welcome Blanca into their weird, wonderful world. Together, Blanca and her new chosen family discover that love and encouragement are key ingredients in the recipe for making your dreams come true.

Don't miss the heartwarming tale about taking on your dreams and the big city when EAT YOUR HEART OUT struts down the runway August 13th!
