IDW Gives Fans A First Look At John Layman And Nick Bradshaw’s ‘Bermuda’ #1

by Olly MacNamee

Writer John Layman (Chew, Detective Comics) and artist Nick Bradshaw (Wolverine and the X-Men, Fantastic Four) have a new four-issue mini-series debuting this July from IDW Publishing. A high-seas, island adventure with plenty of dark magicians, and strange monsters!

And in anticipation of July’s #1 issue debut, IDW have shared a first look at the debut issue’s opening scene. And it looks as amazing as you’d expect given Bradshaw’s involvement.

“There’s a region in the Atlantic Ocean where planes disappear, ships are lost, and souls go missing… never to be heard from again. And there’s an island within this place, mysterious and uncharted, untouched by time and civilization, where all who are lost end up — human or otherwise! On this wondrous jungle island lives a scrappy 16-year-old girl named Bermuda, fighting to survive against dinosaurs, pirates, and otherworldly threats. But when a weird new kid washes ashore, she may face the biggest challenge of her life: a perilous rescue mission that just might be the death of her!”

Wait, I hear you cry, Bermuda was supposed come out last year, right? But, as Layman explains, the global pandemic bought them more time to perfect this project:

Probably the single upside to the past year has been that Bermuda got some extra time, and it shows on every panel on every page. This is a gorgeous book, just staggeringly beautiful, and it’s been a thrill to see the pages roll in. It’s certainly one of the most stunning comics I’ve ever been a part of — and it’s a whole lot of fun too!”

Bradshaw added:

“Drawing comics for me is tuning out the day and falling into worlds of adventure. I’ve enjoyed creating every panel of Bermuda and I hope it shows. This book was my retreat over the last year and I tried to give it all the love it deserves.”

Look out for Bermuda #1 coming this July from IDW and featuring multiple cover variants including Cover A by Nick Bradshaw and three Retailer Incentive editions: a unique variant image by Bradshaw, plus trade dress and dress-free versions of artwork by legendary comic artist Arthur Adams.
