Your First Look at NEW WORLD from BOOM! Studios
Discover Excitement, Adventure, and Magic Around Every Bend in August 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 15, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at NEW WORLD, a new original graphic novel debuting in stores August 2019 from visionary Brazilian cartoonist David Jesus Vignolli, creator of the acclaimed A Girl in The Himalayas.
Myth intertwines with history in this fantastical adventure that takes off as the New World collides with the old. The arrival of Europeans on the shores of South America sparks a fateful journey of discovery and daring for a native warrior seeking revenge against those who invaded her land, an African musician fighting for freedom against those who enslaved him, and a Portuguese sailor in search of redemption.
NEW WORLD is a timely story about the ways our differences unite us in our darkest hours, intertwining the cultures of Vignolli’s personal heritage to explore a legend that mixes vibrant blends of fantasy and history together to explore a world unlike any other.
NEW WORLD is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ ambitious Archaia imprint, home to graphic novels such as Mouse Guard by David Petersen; Rust by Royden Lepp; Bolivar by Sean Rubin; Jane by Aline Brosh McKenna and Ramón K. Pérez; About Betty’s Boob by Vero Cazot and Julie Rocheleau; Waves by Ingrid Chabbert; and licensed series like Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation.
“David Jesus Vignolli weaves a powerful tale of people coming together in the face of evil the way only someone with his unique perspective and boundless imagination could,” said Cameron Chittock, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “The blend of history, fantasy, and undeniable heart in NEW WORLD are further proof that Vignolli is a special voice in the comics medium.”
New World will hit comic shops on August 21 and other retailers on August 27.
