BOOM! STUDIOS' FOREVER HOME

BOOM! Studios has announced today a November release for an original graphic novel, Forever Home, from cartoonist Jenna Ayoub, a new story about finding your place and learning to love where you are.

Here's how BOOM! describes the book:

Willow has had a nomadic childhood -- with two parents in the military, staying put has become a pipe dream. And when the family arrives at their latest stop -- the historic Hadleigh House -- Willow encounters something that doesn't help her chances of finding home... ghosts!

"Hadleigh House's spectral residents have been scaring off would-be homebuyers for decades, and they intend to keep the house to themselves. But Willow's not about to let some nagging spirits force her to move for the millionth time. As Willow spends time in the house and gains the ghosts' respect through her own strong will to stay in the house no matter what, they find that all of them belong there. Together, the restless spirits are finally able to find some peace, and Willow finds a home.

"Then itfs just a matter of convincing Willow's parents that this old house is the one for them- ghosts included."

"Forever Home has been a very fun, and very personal project for me. It has given me the chance to pay homage to the spirits that I love\many of whom are actually still alive and hopefully will appreciate the little parts that they contributed to this story," Ayoub said. "I'm very excited to bring this adventure to life, and hope that it will bring readers as much joy as it has brought me."



IDW'S TMNT: URBAN LEGENDS

"The original creative team of writer Gary Carlson and artist Frank Fosco reunite to bring an ending to the Urban Legends saga, colored by Adam Guzowski, who also colored the entire series.

"It's a pleasure to be able to finish up the TMNT storylines that Frank Fosco and I started over twenty years ago," Carlson said. "I have always been proud of the issues we did at Image. It's great to know that our run hasn't been forgotten, and that so many fans are excited to see how it would have ended."

"After all these years, we're excited to finally be able to wrap up this awesome storyline../ so put a helmet on, buckle up, and jump on for an exciting ride full of twists and turns. We've all been waiting for this," Fosco said.
