[ENGLISH] Image Comics says: THE SKY PIRATES OF NEO TERRA saga begins in a new five issue series with BURN illustrator Camilla dâ€™Errico, FICTION CLEMENS writer Josh Wagner and SKY PIRATES creator Sean Megaw, setting the stage for the upcoming Nintendo DS racer from Day 21 Studios and Big Sandwich Games, this September.
« Normally writing for an established property is a strict creative process, but the flush world of SKY PIRATES OF NEO TERRA has given us the freedom to have a lot of fun,â€œ writer Josh Wagner said. « In addition, since the video game uses Camillaâ€™s art for character conversations, itâ€™s very natural to take those illustrations to the next level.â€
SKY PIRATES OF NEO TERRA is the tale of a fantasy world once devastated by global catastrophe. Through the tradition of Glidewing racing, order is preserved amongst the remaining tribes with an annual Great Race, where the winner of five consecutive glidewing races selects a leader for the Great Tribal Council. The Pirate King has won four victories leaving him poised to undo the order the tribes of Neo Terra have worked to preserve. With the help of friends, an impulsive young glide wing pilot named Billy Boom Boom must stop the Pirate King before he unleashes dark forces that would change existence, as they know it.
SKY PIRATES OF NEO TERRA (JUL090343), a 32-page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores September 30, 2009.
