Tom Taylor, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Nightwing, Superman: Son of Kal-El, DCeased, and Injustice, has joined forces with powerhouse illustrator Jon Sommariva (Harley Quinn) for this gritty young adult graphic novel set in the world of Peter Pan.
Neverland has become a war zone and now it’s up to a new group of lost teens to set things right!
Bee and her fellow runaways are their own found family. So when a stranger named Paco saves her life, Bee invites him to join their crew, thinking he’s another lost teen. Someone else the world has overlooked. The truth is Paco’s not just a lost teen, he’s a Lost Boy from Neverland. And he needs Bee and the others to come back with him.
When the group is then spirited away by a foul-mouthed Tinker Bell, they discover that Neverland is not some fun-filled hideaway. It's a war zone under siege by a horde of pirates with a merciless new leader who will stop at nothing to steal the land’s magic. Tink leads a fairy army that barely holds them at bay. Peter Pan is gone. And rest of the Lost Boys have been killed. Paco is all that remains . . . but he hopes that this group of teens will become the new Lost Ones. These young runaways may be Neverland’s only hope—but they’re about to learn that it’ll take a lot more than happy thoughts to win a war.
Award-winning and worldwide bestselling author Tom Taylor (Dark Knights of Steel, Marvel's Dark Ages, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man) and artist Jon Sommariva (Marvel Action: Avengers, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) take readers back to the world of Peter Pan, but this explosive reimagining is not your parents’ Neverland.
