All-new stories for best-selling, award-winning
author's young adult universe
Now in stores
IDW Publishing is thrilled to offer an all-new comics series, expanding on James Patterson's record-breaking, #1 bestselling young adult novel, Witch & Wizard. Available in comic and books stores throughout North American, WITCH & WIZARD: THE BATTLE FOR SHADOWLAND takes the beleaguered siblings, Whit and Wisty Allgood, on an all-new, exciting adventure in their struggle against the magic-hating New Order.
"This series adds an entirely new layer to the Witch & Wizard universe," said Patterson. "Starting today, we're offering fans not only new content but also new ways to experience a story through the comics medium, in print or in digital form."
Helming this first WITCH & WIZARD story arc, comics mainstay writer Dara Naraghi packs all the action Patterson fans love into this new story of magical powers and inter-dimensional evil, under careful direction of the famed author himself. Artist Victor Santos brings the incredible adventure to life and provides eye-catching covers. Fan-favorite artist J.K. Woodward also contributed a painted cover for the debut issue of this five-part comic series. Award-winning artist Fabio Moon joined Santos on covers for the rest of the arc.
In addition to comic and book stores throughout North America, WITCH & WIZARD: THE BATTLE FOR SHADOWLAND comics are also available through the Apple App Store for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and the Sony Digital Comics store for the Sony PSP.
