The Hollywood Report has the scoop on our newest announcement:

Magnetic Press is bringing the graphic novel HARD MELODY by Lu Ming to the U.S. this April!


After almost a decade apart, three old friends reunite in Beijing, and struggle to come to terms with how mundane their lives have become since they parted — lighting the fuse for the explosive Chinese drama Hard Melody, due for its debut English language release from Magnetic Press this spring.

Written and illustrated by Lu Ming — the first Chinese illustrator to win a Gold Lion at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity — Hard Melody follows the three friends as they attempt to reform the band they belonged to in their twenties, and find themselves involved in an uprising against the authorities when an entire neighborhood faces eviction.
