Terry Blas & Claudia Aguirre Craft ‘Ultimate Adventure Book’ Hotel Dare At Boom

by Hannah Means Shannon

Boom! Studios have announced a new original graphic novel written by Terry Blas (Dead Weight) and illustrated by Claudia Aguirre (Kim&Kim) set to arrive in shops next Spring in April 2019.
In Hotel Dare, Olive and her adopted siblings, Darwin and Charlotte, spend their summer with their estranged grandma Mama Lupe at her “creepy hotel” in Mexico. When doing their chores leads them to discover “a secret hiding behind every door of the hotel” through the auspices of an ancient mask, the kids journey to three different magical worlds where they find “space Pirates, bearded Wizards, and cotton-candied kingdoms”. In order to save these worlds from destruction, they have to learn to be a family unit.

Blas says:

HOTEL DARE is the exact kind of story I’ve always wanted to write: an all ages adventure featuring a diverse family that spans worlds and times. To bring this type of story to life, featuring characters from some of the largest minority groups with the least amount of representation is important to me and hopefully it will connect with people of all backgrounds, interests and ages.

Claudia Aguirre adds:

HOTEL DARE is the ultimate adventure book I would have loved as a kid; world-hopping action, and a cast of lovable Latino characters who take on the mantle of heroes. Who doesn’t like a story with a heroic Mexican abuelita? I am very proud to be the artist for this amazing adventure for all ages. I’m hoping it will connect with you too, and make you feel like part of the Dare family!

Print copies of Hotel Dare will be available for sale in April 2019  at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one), bookstores or at the Boom! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the Boom! Studios app.
