Titan Comics and Atomeka have announced a new comic series Tomorrowland, a four issue series by Paul Jenkins and Stellar Labs. The comic is based on the Tomorrowland electronic dance music festival which will expand for the first time outside of Belgium to Chattahooche Hills, Georgia this September 27 through 29.
The music fest has already sold out of its 180,000 tickets for the Belgium festival which takes place in July. That sell out occurred in under one second. Attendees are from over 214 countries and the festival features some of the hottest music acts.
Paul Jenkins and the team at Stellar Labs get to adapt the comic which follows DJs Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, two young stars who have become the public face of the Tomorrowland festival as they are drawn into an impossible adventure to save the vital spark of creativity from the forces that would destroy it! Dimitri and Mike, two Belgian brothers, have been closely associated to the festival for the past few years and were the obvious choice to lead the way in this new Tomorrowland adventure.
There are two worlds – the world we see, and the one we sense. The world we see is a harsh place: divided by wars and political extremism, religious fundamentalism and avarice. The world we sense hides in plain sight: you can see it in your peripheral vision, moving, vibrant. It’s a world of feeling, where art, music and science intertwine, where the written word is a powerful tool of creation.
In these two worlds, we each carry two avatars – one embodying destruction, one connected to creation. This is the way of the universe. But creation and destruction wage an eternal war for the energy we carry inside us. It’s a war that we are rapidly losing…
Tomorrowland #1 will hit comic stores on July 17, 2013. The series will also be available to read day and date on the iPad, iPhone, Web, Android and Kindle Fire, exclusively through the comiXology app and comiXology.com
