ONI PRESS ANNOUNCES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PRINT
THE MRS FROLLEIN COLLECTION: SMALL HOURS BY VALÉRIE MINELLI
The Beloved International Slice-of-Life Webcomic to Come Home For the First Time in Print in February 2020
Throw on your sweats and get comfy on the couch! Branching out from its devoted Instagram following, Mrs. Frollein webcomic creator Valérie Minelli and Oni Press are pleased to announce that the internationally adored comic is coming to print for the first time in February 2020 as The Mrs. Frollein Collection: Small Hours.
“I’m so excited to see this book that I worked so hard on in print for the first time,” said Valérie. “I put all my heart in it and hope everybody who reads it will get the same warm, fuzzy feeling that I had while drawing it.”
The tremendously popular Mrs. Frollein comics have been stirring emotion in people all over the world with heartfelt and earnest strips making fun of the mundane. These perfectly poignant webcomics find inspiration in every day, encompassing rainy coffee mornings, playful relationship adventures, and quiet introspective moments— the small, unexpected minutes that quilt life together.
“The first time I read a Mrs. Frollein comic, it felt like Christmas lights turning on in my brain,” said editor Jasmine Amiri. “It’s been a blast working with Valérie Minelli and seeing all the thoughtful touches and additions she’s brought to this first collection. I’m truly excited to present Val’s adorable, warmhearted comics to an even wider audience with Small Hours.”
In addition to many of the most recent fan-favorite Mrs. Frollein strips, Small Hours also includes thirty all-new, never before released comics as well as a foreword from fellow webcomic luminaries, Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich of ‘War and Peas’. Mrs. Frollein began in 2016 on Instagram and continues to be updated regularly three years later with 417k followers. The Mrs. Frollein Collection: Small Hours will be available online and in stores on February 18, 2020.
