Oni Press will release The Tea Dragon Tapestry, the final volume of The Tea Dragon Society original graphic novel series, on September 1, 2020. The series, by Katie O’Neill, had two previous volumes, most recently The Tea Dragon Festival, released last fall (see “Oni Unveils Companion Tale to Katie O’Neill’s Eisner-Winning ‘Tea Dragon Society’”). The Tea Dragon Society won dual Eisner Awards in 2018, for Best Publication for Kids (ages 9-12), and Best Webcomic (see “Female Creators and Kids Comics Honored at Eisners”).

O’Neill reflected on the creation of the new volume.  “It brings me great joy to be returning to the stories of Greta, Minette and many other friends readers have met through the world of Tea Dragons,” she said. “When I started writing Society, I absolutely could not have imagined the warmth and enthusiasm that would meet these characters and creatures.”

The plot synopsis, via Oni:

“It’s been over a year since she was entrusted with Ginseng's care and Greta still can't chase away the cloud of mourning that hangs over the timid Tea Dragon. As she struggles to create something spectacular enough to impress a master blacksmith in search of an apprentice, she questions the true meaning of crafting, and the true meaning of caring for someone in grief.

“Meanwhile, Minette receives a surprise package from the monastery where she was once training to be a prophetess. Thrown into confusion about her path in life, the shy and reserved Minette finds that the more she opens her heart to others, the more clearly she can see what was always inside.”
