Hope Never Goes Extinct in ‘Dodo’
BOOM! Studios has announced DODO, a new original graphic novel (OGN) debuting May 2018 about love, loss, and how the most unexpected of friends can save us. Written and illustrated by Felipe Nunes—a protégé of award-winning brothers Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá — DODO follows six-year-old Laila as she struggles to understand her parents’ divorce, and the magic she finds along the way while trying to cope.
When Laila’s parents split up, she doesn’t understand why her life has changed, and why her dad never comes by anymore. Lonely and confused, Laila ends up befriending a strange bird that lives in the park by her house. Her friendship with this bird, a dodo named Ralph, takes Laila on a journey she never expected and shows her things about her own world she’d never noticed before.
