First look at KaBOOM!'s "Pandora's Legacy"
Mix classic mythology with modern family adventure and you have Pandora’s Legacy, an upcoming original graphic novel from KaBOOM! BOOM! ends their week-long look at upcoming comics with a bang (no pun intended... or is it?) as they provide a first look at this fun looking adventure story. Written by Kara Leopard and illustrated by Kelly and Nichole Matthews, the book follows the descendants of Pandora (as in ”’s Box” Pandora) as they are tasked with being the new caretakers of said box. Surely nothing bad will come of this.
KABOOM! SUMMER BLAST:
Your First Look at “Pandora’s Legacy”
BOOM! Studios Concludes Week Long Spotlight on Top Middle Grade Comics
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 18, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to conclude KaBOOM! Summer Blast, a week-long spotlight on the best middle grade comic books and graphic novels from the award-winning imprint in the coming months with your first look at PANDORA’S LEGACY, an all-new original graphic novel from writer Kara Leopard ([Super]natural Attraction) along with the art duo of Kelly & Nichole Matthews (Jim Henson’s Power of The Dark Crystal) arriving in stores November 2018
What starts out as a typical family vacation to their grandparents house goes sideways when Charlie, Janet, and Trevor Panagakos accidentally break an old jar that was hidden away deep in the woods….revealing they’re descendants of Pandora and their family’s tasked with protecting a certain famous box. Now on the run, the Panagakos have to figure out how to capture all the monsters that have escaped the jar…and save the rest of their family before it’s too late. Between talking cats, trying not to drop their phone, and making new friends, this is one vacation that these kids will never forget.
Based on the successful Kickstarter campaign featuring a beautifully illustrated field guide to the story’s mythological monsters, PANDORA’S LEGACY brings the creatures to life in this new original graphic novel, with a cover by Kelly & Nichole Matthews.
“Everyone knows family is special – but sometimes the specialness means fighting scary monsters and going on crazy adventures to save the day alongside a talking cat,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “PANDORA’S LEGACY is the kind of graphic novel that takes you on an incredible journey from the first page and doesn’t let you go till the last. Kara, Kelly, and Nichole have created a truly special world you’ll fall in love with.”
Pandora’s Legacy will hit comic shops this November.
