You can’t tell a book by its cover, but one can definitely pique your interest. My eyes widened when I saw the cover for Bermuda, a new series from writer John Layman and artist Nick Bradshaw, coming next year from IDW Publishing. It’s got a dinosaur and a downed airplane and a jungle and I want it now.
Writer John Layman says:
Bermuda is a story that’s been rattling around in my head for a while, and the type of book I’ve wanted to write for quite some time: high adventure with a jungle hero in a strange, savage land filled with all kinds of dangers and a world that’s both weird and wonderful. In addition to Chew, my absolute favorite books I’ve ever done have been with IDW – Scarface, Godzilla, and Mars Attacks – so I’m hoping lightning strikes a fourth time with Bermuda!
Bermuda follows the title character, a normal, everyday 16 year old girl living in an otherworldly dimension filled with dinosaurs and pirates. I love everything about that sentence.
Artist Nick Bradshaw added:
I’m excited to be working on Bermuda. John is giving me thrilling stories full of adventure and suspense — so much so, I don’t know if I can do them justice, but I’m sure as hell going to try!
No specific release date has been set for Bermuda just yet. I think we can all agree that whatever date it is will be too long to wait.
Nick Bradshaw is an insane talent whose work I’ve been in love with since the moment I’d laid eyes on it, so I’m thrilled to be teamed up with him. Plus, I’m getting a chance to reunite with my old boss and good friend, the Eisner-award accumulating editor extraordinaire, Scott Dunbier.
