Exclusive: BOOM! Studios to Publish ‘Nomads’ Webtoon | News
We have another exclusive for you today: BOOM! Studios will publish the all-ages webtoon Nomads, by Captain Juuter, as an original graphic novel under its KaBOOM! kids’ imprint. The action/adventures story follows a ragtag group of friends on a perilous journey through a fantasy world filled with wonders and dangers.
Here’s the publisher’s summary:
All Lance wants to do is find his missing brother; but between a runaway prince, a magical genie, and a talking cat, he’s getting swept up in much more than he bargained for!
In a world where five Kingdoms are isolated from each other, only a special group of people known as Nomads are allowed to travel between them. But there’s a catch–becoming a Nomad means that you’ll never have a homeland again. Lance never wanted to be a Nomad, but on his 19th birthday, he leaves his homeland in the Sea Kingdom behind while searching for his missing brother in the Sky Kingdom.
Lance’s first steps into his journey get flipped upside down when he meets Satra, a wannabe Nomad with a mysterious past and Saber, a talking cat with magical powers. Soon, Lance is in for far more than he bargained for when wanted posters with his face start popping up and he begins to be chased down by bounty hunters!
The first volume will be released in comic shops on May 8, 2024, and in bookstores on May 14, 2024. The 256-page paperback will have an MSRP of $12.99.
