Papercutz announces the new YA graphic novel, Digital Lizards of Doom
When a magical trickster secretly traps an entire universe inside a video game world, a young warrior named Dizzy Doom must search for answers to unravel the mystery. But as villains from another galaxy come to attack his kingdom, Dizzy is forced to make an unlikely alliance with a mysterious ninja and cyborg cat pirate. Dizzy’s ideology will be tested, as he comes to realize everything is not always as it seems.
Digital Lizards of Doom is a landmark publication for Papercutz. Papercutz is known internationally for producing great graphic novels, so we’re more than thrilled to introduce a project that is part of such an impressive independently created mixed-media universe. Digital Lizards of Doom is the first in a series that will let readers grow alongside the story, while expanding their love of the DLOD universe through the incredible combination of music, literature, adventure, and pop culture. Creator Gabriel Valentin has paired his incredible first book with original DLOD music, which will be available on the DLOD website– and both are sprinkled with hidden easter eggs referencing the classic pop culture moments that influenced him. Will you be able to spot all of them?
