ABADAZAD #1

Written by J.M. DeMatteis, art by Mike Ploog and Butch Guice, colored by Brian Miller, cover by Ploog.

Writer J.M. DeMatteis explains it best: "Abadazad--the series--is a fantasy-adventure in the tradition of Oz, Narnia, Neverland, Dr. Seuss, Madeleine L'Engle, A.A. Milne, Susan Cooper and all the great children's literature that has nurtured my soul. Abadazad--the place--is a magical land that Kate, a cynical 14-year-old, has only known through a series of famous fantasy novels by Franklin O. Barrie...until she is told that her long-missing brother is being held there!" Can it be true? Do The Lanky Man, Mr. Gloom, the Twofold Witch and Professor Headstrong really exist? And if Abadazad is real, how is it far stranger--and dangerous--than fiction? Find out as DeMatteis and artists Mike Ploog and Butch Guice launch this new epic adventure. (Note: Nearly all of this first chapter--which is set on Earth--will be illustrated by Guice. Ploog will draw all of the scenes in Abadazad in this and all upcoming issues.)
