Travel to a Magical Sanctuary of Immortal Beings and Mystical Creatures in BOOM! Studios’ A Girl in the Himalayas

BOOM! Studios has announce A Girl in the Himalayas, a moving original graphic novel (OGN) written and illustrated by new talent David Jesus Vignolli about a young girl whose unexpected arrival in the magical land of immortal beings threatens the sanctuary’s very existence. Debuting April 2018, A Girl in the Himalayas was submitted through the open submissions portal of Archaia, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, and the title caught the attention of the publisher’s editors with its artwork and themes of inequality, love, and the chaos that lives in human hearts.

In A Girl in the Himalayas, beyond the peaks and valleys of the Himalaya mountains lies a magical sanctuary that is home to immortal beings and mystical creatures. It’s a realm protected from the chaos of man. But when a young human, Vijaya, is brought into the sanctuary for her protection, the immortals fear her presence may lead to their ruin. While Vijaya makes new friends and sees wonders beyond her wildest dreams, mankind draws ever closer to the sanctuary’s borders. To protect her friends and earn her place, Vijaya will have to prove that there is more to being human than the violence her new family fears beyond their borders.

A Girl in the Himalayas softcover features a main cover illustrated by Vignolli.

BOOM! Announces the Supernatural Crime Thriller Abbott by Saladin Ahmed and Sami Kivelä

BOOM! Studios has announced Abbotta new, original comic book series launching in January 2018 from Hugo Award-nominated writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Sami Kivelä about a female journalist of color in 1970s Detroit named Elena Abbott who investigates a series of grisly crimes the police have ignored—crimes she recognizes to be the work of a dark magical force—the same force that murdered her husband 10 years ago. As she looks for clues, Abbott puts herself in the crosshairs of a mysterious power out for more blood, all the while navigating a harsh social environment that’s structured to protect the powerful, and prevent access to change.

Born in Detroit, Ahmed had been wanting to write a story set in his hometown, especially during a pivotal moment in its history. He describes Detroit as the “real co-star” of the comic. The comic is set in 1972, the year Nixon was re-elected and Motown Records left for Los Angeles. The series takes place against a backdrop of white flight and black renaissance in the city.

Abbott #1 has a main cover illustrated by Taj Tenfold and a variant cover by Micaela Dawn.
