PORTLAND, Ore. 08/22/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that the second middle grade graphic novel in the Camp Midnight series by Steven T. Seagle and Jason Adam Katzenstein—Camp Midnight vs. Camp Daybright—will hit stores this October.
After a long year among normals, Skye is eager to return to Camp Midnight as an older, more seasoned camper. But her parents have other ideas. They’re putting her on a bus to the camp she was supposed to go to last summer—Camp Daybright! With a sinking feeling of déjà vu, Skye sets out for a summer of new friends in a new camp, complete with a creepily familiar new arch-frenemy. It all adds up to big adventures and even bigger scares at the camp with a happy name—and a monstrous secret just beyond its fences! Camp Midnight vs. Camp Daybright (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1341-5) will hit comic shops on Wednesday, October 9 and bookstores on Tuesday, October 15. It can be pre-ordered with your local comic shop, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo. Camp Midnight vs. Camp Daybright will also be purchased across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play. Praise for Camp Midnight, Vol. 1: "A devilishly fun summer camp story" —Publishers Weekly "Perfectly blends the creepy with the humorous" —School Library Journal “A great read for both a first-time foray into comics and someone more familiar and interested in the YA market, as it perfects the fundamentals.” —The Onion's AV Club
