BOOM! Box, BOOM! Studios’ original title imprint, will publish Zawa + The Belly of the Beast, a new series by Wynd co-creator Michael Dialynas, who will write and draw the series.
“I’ve done it! I’ve managed to swindle BOOM! into letting me write and draw my series! Zawa + The Belly of the Beast has all my art passions, from drawing tasty foods to weird creepy monsters in a cottage-core apocalyptic seaside city! This is a story about facing your own fears and standing up for what you believe…plus it has a cute guard cat and a chill chicken,” said Dialynas. “It’s gonna be awesome!”
The main character, Zawa, does look pretty awesome:
Here are the details from BOOM!:
Trapped for eternity inside her mountain by pollution-spewing factories, the ancient guardian spirit Zawa only has industrial run-off to eat, leading her to a bitter existence of paranoia and destruction. But when two siblings from a nearby village, Bandit and Thatcher, help her escape, they’ll quickly learn that the way to calm Zawa’s heart is through a well nourished stomach!
The first issue will come with variant covers by Jorge Corona, Karl Kerschl and Dialynas:
