RELEASE DATE - 21 SEPTEMBER 2021

Eric Bittle may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur pâtissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge. It is nothing like co-ed club hockey back in Georgia! First of all? There's checking (anything that hinders the player with possession of the puck, ranging from a stick check all the way to a physical sweep). And then, there is Jack--his very attractive but moody captain.

A collection of the first half, freshmen and sophomore year, of the megapopular webcomic series of the same name, Check, Please!: #Hockey is the first book of a hilarious and stirring two-volume coming-of-age story about hockey, bros, and trying to find yourself during the best four years of your life.

This book includes updated art and a hilarious, curated selection of Bitty's beloved tweets.

"Check, Please! is very much a thing of our time in its approach to gay identity and romance... There's no big coming-out scene, no 'convert the lone homophobe' drama, no storyline cooked up just to educate the reader about the gay experience. Bitty doesn't need any of that, and Ukazu gives the reader credit for not needing it either."
NPR

"Check, Please -- an endlessly delightful web comic about hockey, baking, and bros."
Den of Geek

"Check Please! is the perfect reminder of the growth in queer narratives we've gotten in the past few years...filled with cute romance, zero toxic masculinity, and a really great sense of male camaraderie that's refreshing to read."
The Mary Sue

"Ukazu, who began Bitty's story as an uberpopular webcomic, folds in plenty of hockey terms and highlights team camaraderie while skilfully dismantling themes of toxic masculinity...A slow-burn same-sex romance is just the icing on the cake (sorry--pie) in this irresistibly fun and utterly charming sports story. Volume two can't come fast enough"
Booklist, starred review

"This is a warm story with an irresistible protagonist, a clever supporting cast, and lively and plentiful game and practice scenes... A fun and deeply satisfying read for teens."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
