Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios will publish Wonder Pony, the original graphic novel by Franco-Belgian comic creator Marie Spénale, originally published in French language and now coming to North America in April 2020. The Beat had the EX-X-XCLUSIVE press release reveal, which contained a synopsis of Wonder Pony:
For Louison, going back to school for sixth grade looks set to be eventful to say the least… not only is it time to face the terrifying world of boarding school and make friends, but it turns out she has superpowers! Thanks to her friend Jean-Pierre – who happens to be a pink pony – Louison gains the ability to transform herself into a super-heroine: WONDER PONY.
Her mission? To keep watch over the school, and protect her classmates and friends from any dangers that might arise…
And who doesn’t wish they had a magical pink pony companion with the ability to help them become a super-hero? Wonder Pony will be published by BOOM!’s KaBOOM! imprint, with Spénale saying:
Louison is a heroine I would have liked to be in sixth grade: a girl who’s a little bit shy, but courageous, and who learns to overcome the monsters that haunt her school thanks to Jean-Pierre, a tiny magic pony! Thanks to him, she becomes super strong and very popular. The dream, right? I hope you have as much fun reading as I did when I wrote and drew it!
Look for this in stores in April, 2020.
