Image/Skybound has given a first look at Everyday Hero Machine Boy, the new original graphic novel by Tri Vuong and Irma Kniivila. This title is the first release from Skybound Comet, the new graphic novel imprint for young adult and middle grade readers. It’ll be in book stores on September 13, 2022.
“It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… Machine Boy! When Machine Boy falls from the sky into the domed city of Mega 416, he leaves a wake of destruction in his path… until Karate Grandpa is able to turn on his heart,” Skybound’s description reads. “Now, Machine Boy wants nothing more than to become a hero! Whether he is fighting giant bugs in the school's basement, rescuing cats from trees, or making the perfect spaghetti sauce, Machine Boy is always looking for the best way to help others. But when his heart begins to interact dangerously with other debris from space, Machine Boy wonders if he can be a power for good after all.”
Everyday Hero Machine Boy will be joined by other Skybound Comet’s launch titles like Clementine Book One by writer-artist Tillie Walden in June 2022, and Sea Serpent’s Heir Book One by Mairghread Scott and Pablo Tunica in October 2022.
