Boy meets whale, whale swallows boy, boy discovers tiny town inside whale…and then the adventure really begins. Sure, sounds familiar, but this May, a new take on this story is coming to the pages of a comic thanks to BAD IDEA Comics.
Join First Mate (and New York Times best-selling writer) Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Captain (and artistic architect) Adam Pollina (X-Force), and Chief Engineer (and Eisner Award-winning colorist) Matt Hollingsworth (Hawkeye) for WHALESVILLE #1, a majestic, whale-sized one-shot spectacular told in the tradition of Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli and Pixar!
Told almost entirely in meticulously rendered double-page spreads, WHALESVILLE #1 tells the story of young Wawae – the seaborn son of a whaling captain, who is thrown overboard and swallowed whole by a whale; he knows his father will relentlessly pursue revenge against the creature that stole away his boy. What he didn’t expect, however, is what he’s about to find inside: the town of “Whalesville” – a colorful, cobbled-together village inhabited by an astounding collection of talking sea creatures, including a crab named Caleb, an angler fish called Angela, and a seadragon that prefers to go by Lilly. But, to Wawae’s new friends, Whalesville isn’t just their home, it’s the whole world – and they don’t understand the danger that now pursues them from above the waves or that they are even inside a whale at all. To rescue his new best buddies, Wawae will have to convince them of the truth…and save Whalesville before his own father sends them sinking into the inky depths forever.
Bad Idea Comics has already come to terms with the fact that while taking this comic into the bathtub, multiple times may damage its inherent collectibility. Still, it will also definitely enhance the reading experience.
WHALESVILLE #1 sets sail in May 2021 in comic stores exclusively.
