For more than a decade, Skybound has been home to innovative, inspiring, and imaginative stories, so it's especially exciting that Skybound has announced Skybound Comet, a new graphic novel imprint for Young Adult (Ages 12+) and Middle Grade (8–12) readers!

As revealed on the official Skybound website, Skybound Comet will kick off in July 2022 with Clementine Book One (featuring Clementine from Telltale's The Walking Dead), Skybound Comet will also release Everyday Hero Machine Boy in September 2022 and Sea Serpent's Heir Book One in October 2022.

Here's what Sean Mackiewicz, SVP, Editor-in-Chief at Skybound Entertainment, had to say about launching Skybound Comet (via Skybound):

“The goal of Skybound has always been to create the best comics that bring new readers to the medium we love so much, and Skybound Comet is the next step in that mission. We’ll be not only exploring pop culture phenomenon like THE WALKING DEAD from a whole new perspective, but also bringing you entirely new worlds and new characters that we know will capture the hearts of readers of all ages.”

Via Skybound, Alex Antone, Senior Editor at Skybound Entertainment, says that these initial three graphic novels are expected to be the first of many new releases under the new imprint:

“These three launches are only the beginning of our long-term graphic novel plan. We’re committed to igniting the imaginations of young people with exciting new genre adventures from diverse storytellers for many years to come.”

Skybound Comet graphic novels will be released at comic book shops and bookstores, as well as digital outlets (Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play).

We have a look at the cover art and release details for Clementine Book One (written and illustrated by Tillie Walden), Everyday Hero Machine Boy (from the creative team of Tri Vuong and Irma Kniivila), and Sea Serpent's Heir Book One (from the minds of Mairghread Scott and Pablo Tunica).

Clementine Book One: "It’s a new beginning for Clementine, the star of the bestselling video game franchise TELLTALE’S THE WALKING DEAD, in CLEMENTINE BOOK ONE, as she’s back on the road, looking to put her traumatic past behind her and forge a new path all her own. But when she comes across an Amish teenager named Amos with his head in the clouds, the unlikely pair journeys North to an abandoned ski resort in Vermont, where they meet up with a small group of teenagers attempting to build a new, walker-free settlement. As friendship, rivalry, and romance begin to blossom amongst the group, the harsh winter soon reveals that the biggest threat to their survival…might be each other.

Clementine makes her first comic book appearance in SKYBOUND X #1, available in comic shops and at digital providers on July 7, 2021."

Everyday Hero Machine Boy: "In EVERYDAY HERO MACHINE BOY, the titular hero falls from the sky to the domed city of Mega416, leaving a wake of destruction in his path…until Karate Grandpa is able to turn on his heart. Now, Machine Boy wants nothing more than to become a hero! Whether he is fighting giant bugs in the school’s basement, rescuing cats from trees, or making the perfect spaghetti sauce, Machine Boy is always looking for the best way to help others. But when his heart begins to interact dangerously with other debris from space, Machine Boy wonders if he can be a power for good after all.

Machine Boy makes his first comic book appearance in SKYBOUND X #2, available in comic shops and at digital providers on July 14, 2021."

Sea Serpent's Heir Book One: "The end of the world is coming in SEA SERPENT’S HEIR BOOK ONE as a teen named Aella on Kinamen Isle spends her days fishing and minding her aunts, dreaming of life beyond the horizon. Everything changes, however, when she awakens an ancient evil within herself as it’s revealed that she’s the reincarnation of Xir, the serpent that almost destroyed the world. Worse yet, a fanatical religious organization has arrived on Kinamen Isle in search of Xir.

Aella makes her first comic book appearance in SKYBOUND X #4, available in comic shops and at digital providers on July 28, 2021."
