The winter holidays are upon us, and that means it’s go time for last-minute holiday gifting. Oneshi Press isn’t a big fan of outright consumerism, but we are big fans of our progressive books, merch, and more. So, hey, if you’re shopping for someone who loves comics, art, indie publishing, or progressive values…we’ve got an Oneshi Press gift guide for you!
For the indie comics fan
Some folks just can’t get enough comics. We don’t blame them—we feel the same way. But while there seems to always be a new big-name superhero title on the shelves, it can be a challenge to find well-rounded, beautiful, thought-provoking comics from indie creators.
Never fear! Your comic geek need look no further than the Oneshi Press Anthology series! Our first eight anthologies feature hundreds of pages of indie comics from dozens of creators all over the world. Each anthology is available in limited-edition print and digital formats, and will keep your comics lover busy for hours.
- Check out all eight over yonder!
Tons of sci-fi-fantasy fan gifts
Sci-fi and fantasy fiction isn’t for everyone. We get it. But those who like it—love it. And they adore any gift that suits their taste. Lucky for you, we’ve got your sci-fi-fantasy fans covered with the Children of Gaia fantasy universe—in books, art, and merch!
The Great Nations of Rendaraia
The Great Nations of Rendaraia is the first book set in the massive Children of Gaia fantasy universe, and it’s packed with everything a fantasy lover needs: Cultural anthropology, magical theory, wildlife portraits, architecture, diagrams, airships, daring exploits, and even LGBTQ representation! Oneshi Press co-founder Jayel Draco wrote and illustrated this gorgeous tome.
War & Horses
War & Horses will delight fans of westerns, fantasy, sci-fi, political intrigue, and combat sports—all in one book. Written by Peter Lampasona with illustrations from Chris Covelli and Jayel Draco, this dime-novel-inspired, gritty slice of epic fantasy in a dusty corner of the Children of Gaia universe is unlike anything you’ve ever read before.
- Grab it in paperback right here!
We’re releasing a new Children of Gaia short comic in every Oneshi Press Comics anthology!

Art and Merch

For the sex-positive feminist (who loves cyborgs & raccoons)
Looking for a gift that’s a treat for pulp sci-fi fans, organized-crime-drama lovers, talking-animal-sidekick supporters, sex-positive feminists, adult-entertainment fans, and more? Tracy Queen is an epic graphic novel written by Lynsey G. and illustrated by Jayel Draco, there’s a little something for everyone…As long as they’re not freaked out by profanity, sexuality, or…you know…fun.

For your favorite art buff
Oneshi Press publishes books that give a shit. But those books are full of art. And our co-founder Jayel Draco is a ridiculously talented powerhouse of art-making. What that means is that we’ve got gorgeous art everywhere. From pinup-style ads for products that Oneshi Press characters use, to beautiful prints of art from our books, to concept art pieces that dig deeper into our worlds, we’ve got the perfect wall art gift foranyone.
The fandom merch collector’s perfect gift
We all know that one person who lives for merch: T-shirts from obscure fandoms, socks with their favorite characters, bags and towels and mugs sporting their favorite series’ logo—they’ve got to have them all. Lucky for them, Oneshi Press has goodies featuring art from all of our original series. And we like to do deep dives to bring our fans the most obscure references possible—perfect for the con attendee who eschews cosplay in favor of impressing fellow merch fanatics. We like to call it “magnificent merch.” And every single product makes an excellent gift!
A gift for the superfan of indie creators
Some folks aren’t the “gifts” type. They’ve already got everything they need, or they’re living that minimalist lifestyle. It’s tough to know what to do for these people around the holidays—but we’ve got a gift for them: A subscription to the Oneshi Press Patreon! Our subscribers get weekly work-in-progress art downloads, all of our publications in print and/or digital, and goodies like selfies and letters from their favorite characters!
