Today, BOOM! Studios revealed the first look at Eighty Days, a brand new original debut graphic novel from acclaimed independent comics creator and winner of the 2016 PRISM Comics Queer Press Grant, A.C. Esguerra, about fighting the impossible odds to find love under the shadow of war, available in September 2021.
Jay wants nothing more than to fly. Or so he thinks until he crosses paths with a mysterious thief named Fix, whose tricks and charms draw him into the struggle against the looming aviation guild to which Jay owes his very being. As Jay becomes further entangled in the turbulence of Fix’s cause, each man must learn to navigate shifting allegiances, the fight for freedom, and the greatest adventure of all — love.
