Open The Door to New Worlds in April 2019
Los Angeles, CA (September 28, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at HOTEL DARE, an all-new original graphic novel written by Terry Blas (Dead Weight) and illustrated by rising talent Claudia Aguirre (Kim & Kim) arriving in stores April 2019.
This world-hopping fantasy follows Olive Dare and her adopted siblings, Darwin and Charlotte, as they spend the summer with their estranged grandmother, Mama Lupè, at her creepy hotel in Mexico. When their boring chores lead them to discover secrets hiding behind every door of the hotel —thanks to a mysterious ancient mask —the kids are transported to three magical worlds filled with space pirates, bearded wizards, and cotton-candied kingdoms. But if they’re gonna save these three worlds from certain jeopardy, they’ll need to embrace the love and acceptance of family…before they tear themselves apart!
“What if you could open a door that would lead you to an all-new adventure that was so extraordinary that it surpassed the limits of imagination? For Olive, Darwin, and Charlotte, this is only the beginning of their summer with their abuela.” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Terry and Claudia’s HOTEL DARE explores how we relate to new places, new cultures, and new families. This is an amazingly beautiful story filled with action, adventure, and the cutest and yet most terrifying creatures you’ve ever seen.”
