BOOM! Box Gets Airborn with ‘Tyson Hesse’s Diesel’
August 11, 2015 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – BOOM! Box, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, takes to the skies for adventure this September with Tyson Hesse’s Diesel. Hop aboard the airship Peacetowne as Tyson Hesse (Bravest Warriors, The Amazing World of Gumball) brings readers an original coming-of-age fantasy in the vein of Amulet and Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle.
In the series: Dee Diesel isn’t very good at anything. The daughter of the late Tungston Diesel, she has yet to live up to her father’s great reputation. Her rival has inherited control of her family’s airship and left Dee the only job she’s qualified for: working in a two-bit garage. But all that changes when a mysterious flying engine crashes into Dee’s life and takes her on a journey through the skies.
“Tyson did an awesome job on covers for Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors, and his work on The Amazing World of Gumball left us in stitches with his flair for characterization,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Diesel is his first original series, and it’s an incredible debut! You’ve got airship fights, robots, and a mysterious flying engine. At the same time, you also have the story of a young woman trying to find her place in the world while standing in her famous father’s shadow. Tyson has created a stunning new world that’s coming your way this September!
