The holiday season is full of magic!
Whether it’s snow softly falling from the nighttime sky, children skating on a frozen pond, the reflection of your own face, peering in storefront windows draped in seasonal cheer, or random acts of kindness from strangers, December can show you that magic exists in our very real world.
But magic exists in other worlds as well – and, occasionally, we get to go on a trip through them via the best in fantasy fiction!
That brings us to today, and a new publication from renowned publisher, Boom! Studios, and two of comicdom’s most fertile, magical minds!
Just in time for the magic of the holiday season, comes the magically wonderful, The Stardust Kid!
The Stardust Kid – Hardcover
Written By: J.M. DeMatteis
Illustrated By: Mike Ploog
Published By: Boom! Studios
Written by comic book industry legend, J.M. DeMatteis (Spider-Man: Kraven’s Last Hunt, Justice League International, Dr. Fate, and a whole host of wonderful comics, graphic novels and novels) and illustrated by fan favourite Mike Ploog (The Spirit, Werewolf By Night, Man-Thing amongst many others), today’s hardcover version of The Stardust Kid is a handsome collection of the original five issue series. It also includes lots of the previously unseen material and is an anxiously-awaited follow-up to Abadazad!
As already mentioned, December is the time for magic, but in The Stardust Kid, magic is only one sleep away!
Cody DiMarco went to bed living an ordinary life. But he awoke to a new world, in a land where magic is older than time, where he and his new friends must join together to unravel a mystery that would restore their family – and their newfound planet!
At 160 pages and full of behind the scenes material, script pages and never-before-seen artwork, The Stardust Kid is a story for readers of all ages. It would make a great gift or stocking stuffer to a young, wide-eyed, in search-of-magic child this holiday season.
Believe in magic! Make the run to your local comic book shop today and pick up today’s release of The Stardust Kid hardcover.
