BOOM! Box To Release New Series In The Vein Of Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle

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. From BOOM! Box, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, comes Diesel. The story follows Dee Diesel who 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.

BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon spoke about the book by saying:

“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. 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!”

Pretty much anything that is described in relation to something Hayao Miyazaki has created is okay in my book. This looks like a fun new series and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Tyson Hesse’s Diesel #1 (of 4) arrives in comic shops on September 9th.
