IDW has announced its latest creator-owned title, Bermuda; a story about a young girl in a strange dimension from writer John Layman and artist Nick Bradshaw.
Bermuda is both the title of this new series as well as our protagonist’s name. She’s a sixteen-year-old whose life is no different from any other girl’s her age; she captures giant bug monsters the size of her torso, she evades dinosaurs and deals with all the latest pirate drama. But, apparently, there’s something beneath the surface of this extra-dimensional escapade that could reveal the secret of Bermuda’s past and how she got here in the first place.
Layman, creator of the New York Times bestseller, Chew, says he’s been wanting to pen this comic for quite some time now. It combines fantastical elements with a modern character – the juxtaposition of which is clearly visible in the cover below (which also has the faintest of Nausicaä vibes). Layman says that Bermuda is one of his favorites he’s done for IDW, among titles like Scarface, Godzilla, and Mars Attacks.
Bradshaw (Wolverine and the X-Men) adds that the journey thus far has been an exciting one, saying “John is giving me thrilling stories full of adventure and suspense — so much so, I don’t know if I can do them justice, but I’m sure as hell going to try!”
Along with Eisner award winning editor Scott Dunbier, Layman and Bradshaw will bring Bermuda to IDW in 2020 – though the publisher has yet to release an official date. ‘Till then, check out the cover art below. For more IDW news, check out our update on the change in leadership.
