Get ready for a journey of excitement, adventure and magic around every turn. This August, Boom! Studios will release New World, an original graphic novel from Brazilian cartoonist David Jesus Vignolli. It mixes myth with history beginning with the arrival of Europeans on the shores of South America. We’ll follow 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 delves into the ways our differences unite us in our darkest hours, blending the cultures of Vignolli’s personal heritage. It digs into a legend with a mix of fantasy and history for a world unlike any other.
Cameron Chittock, Editor at Boom! Studios says:
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. 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 be released under Boom! Studios’ Archaia imprint. It will be available on August 21st, 2019 at your local comic shop and on August 27th, 2019 at bookstores and Amazon.
