Discover Buried Secrets, Long Forgotten History, and the Thrill of Exploration in this Epic Adventure in June 2020
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 10, 2020) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at the new original graphic novel THE LOST CITY OF HERACLEON, written by Bruce Livingstone and illustrated by Mike Willcox, about two boys who embark on an impossible journey through time and space in order to save the universe, available in June 2020.
Called to adventure, young boys Lou and Shiro find themselves on an inter-dimensional submarine captained by an off-the-hinges old man. They soon discover Lou’s missing father might still be alive as they are transferred into fully grown warriors headed straight for the battlegrounds of Ancient Egypt, the Lost City, and to 1914 Sarajevo. As the gods tinkering with fate become reckless and apathetic, the boys become part of a legion hell-bent on restoring balance to humanity.
