Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios has released a first look at David Jesus Vignolli's upcoming original graphic novel, New World, to be published in August via BOOM!'s Archaia imprint. From the press release:
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.
Editor Cameron Chittock provides the obligatory press release quote:
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 hits comic stores on August 21st and bookstores on August 27th. Check out the preview below.
