Maverick and Mad Cave Studios announce Paper Planes

Maverick and Mad Cave Studios have announced Paper Planes, an original graphic novel from writer Jennie Wood and artist Dozerdraws, publishing May 1, 2023. 

High schoolers Leighton Worthington and Dylan Render have always been inseparable, but when they’re both shipped off to a summer camp for troubled youth in the aftermath of a tragic event, their lifelong friendship is put to the test.

Neither ‘chose’ to be there, but they’ll need a positive evaluation from the camp to avoid being sent away, so they can continue attending high school with their friends.

The challenges of camp pushes the once-inseparable Dylan and Leighton onto personal journeys of self-discovery that force them to re-examine the incident that threatens their futures, explore the friendship they have shared for so long, and discover the type of person each of them truly wants to be.

Edited by Erica Schlutz and lettered by Micah Myers, Paper Planes is slated for release May 2023 and is now available for pre-order.
