Boom! Studios has a slew of graphic novels on the way intended for younger audiences. This February sees the release of The Great Wiz and the Ruckus from cartoonist Joey McCormick and colorist Whitney Cogar. It follows Red, a blind Wiz, who’s tasked with gathering the Wizs of the realm to destroy a great and terrible darkness called the Ruckus.
All the great Wizs are gathered together including Bog Wiz, Sad Dad, and Feather Duster, but they soon realize the fate of their world will fall on the shoulders of Bean, a young Wiz who is too strong, too hot-headed, and too untested to be of any real help.
Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios says:
The Great Wiz and the Ruckus has everything you could want in an adventure – lovable heroes, awesome friends and an epic tale of good versus evil. Joey has created an exciting new world of magic that shows us what we sacrifice to achieve our goals, but even more importantly, all that we gain from doing it with friends by our side.
This books sounds and looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Boom! Studios has been on a roll lately with its KaBoom! imprint and The Great Wiz and the Ruckus looks no different. The original graphic novel is set for release on February 13th, 2019 at your local comic shop and on February 19th, 2019 at bookstores and Amazon.
