WHY BOOM! LOVES IT: In the footsteps of Archaia titles like Rust, Iron, Will o’ the Wisp, and The Reason for Dragons, debut writer-artist Jorge Corona (Goners) brings a brand-new voice to the comics industry with Feathers. With our passion for working with fresh talent, we could not be happier to introduce his work to a wider audience.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: There’s never been a better time for fantastic, all-ages comics that embrace both the darkness and beauty in life. Fans of Avatar: Legend of Korra, Mike Mignola, and Amulet will fall in love with Poe, the boy covered in feathers.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: A recluse boy born covered in feathers must help his first-ever friend, a young girl named Bianca, as she tries to return to her home beyond the slums of the Maze. They must dodge street gangs and child-snatchers along the way, and perhaps together will learn the secrets to his mysterious past.

The story follows the creation of the planet Thra and its inhabitants and features the never-before-seen character Raunip, the son of Aughra, created specifically for this series by the film’s conceptual designer, Brian Froud.
