Four years ago I fell in love with a lonely barbarian boy on a mountain top. He had the unglamorous name of Broxo, and he fought the undead. I knew right then that the story had to become a First Second graphic novel. Zack Giallongo, the writer and illustrator of Broxo, created a world that’s as diverse and fascinating as the classic high fantasy adventures of my childhood, and every time I read this book again, I find more to love in it.
Broxo publishes today, and I hope you’ll pick up a copy and dive into the scary, gorgeous, funny world of Broxo, the warrior princess Zora, and the moody landscape they inhabit. After four years watching this book come to life, I can’t wait to share it with you.
