DARK HORSE ANNOUNCES AN ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL FROM NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHORS MATT KINDT AND BRIAN HURTT!
MILWAUKIE, OR,—Matt Kindt, the award-winning, New York Times best-selling author of MIND MGMT and Red Handed, and Brian Hurtt, the award-winning, New York Times best-selling artist of The Sixth Gun and The Damned, are soon to publish Poppy! and the Lost Lagoon, the first in a new graphic novel series for children. The book follows the story of Poppy Pepperton, a ten-year-old girl with a typographic memory who goes on globe-spanning adventures with her sidekick Colt Winchester (who thinks he’s her legal guardian). Publishers Weekly announced last week that Poppy! and the Lost Lagoon will be published in 2015 by Dark Horse Comics.
“It’s been so exciting to see Matt thrive at Dark Horse, and I’m thrilled that he’s continuing that relationship with Poppy! and the Lost Lagoon. He and Brian are bringing just the right light touch and level of imaginative detail to make a truly fun children’s book. It’s hard to believe this is their first graphic novel in the genre!”
—Dark Horse Editor Brendan Wright
