BOOM! Studios Continues Week Long Spotlight on Top Middle Grade Comics
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 17, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to continue 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 PETALS, a new original graphic novel by writer/artist Gustavo Borges, along with Eisner Award-nominated colorist Cris Peter (Casanova), debuting in stores September 2018.
PETALS tells an unforgettable story in which a family of foxes desperately try to survive a merciless winter. One day, the young cub leaves his house looking for much needed firewood and crosses paths with a tall and peculiar bird wearing a singular top hat. This deeply emotional and resonant story about friendship, life and selflessness unfolds in a completely silent original graphic novel.

This silent graphic novel will have you falling in love with the characters instantly, Gustavo’s storytelling is really the next level and will have you invested on page one...but before you get lost in this amazing world, you might want to grab a box of tissues!”
Petals will be available in comic shops on September 19 and other retailers on September 25.
