BOOM! Studios is proud to announce Archaia Summer Reading, a week-long spotlight on the powerful original graphic novel releases from the award-winning imprint in the coming months.
It all begins with an extended first look at RUN WILD, an original graphic novel reuniting storytellers K.I. Zachopoulos and Vincenzo Balzano, the visionary creators of The Cloud. A haunting marriage of a chilling vision of the future and unforgettable characters combine to produce one of the most imaginative graphic fiction experiences of 2018.
When all of civilization begins turning into animals, only two people remain–young siblings Ava and Flynn. On a desperate search for safety in an unpredictable and violent world, they’ll traverse a wild and unruly landscape, make friends and foes of all species, and discover what really makes them human.
“RUN WILD is above all an adventure story that examines the ties that bonds us as living creatures moving through the world, and the sacrifices we make so that others can truly thrive,” said Sierra Hahn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Our mission for the Archaia imprint is to create immerse stories that can take us to new worlds, examine life through someone else’s lens, and challenge expectation of what makes a great graphic novel–be it through talking animals in Run Wild, a largely silent sequential romp in About Betty’s Boob, or in Sanpaku a prose-like meditation on the pitfalls of a theoretical illness of the same name.
