The Greatest Adventure Of All: Previewing ‘Eighty Days’

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios has revealed a new look at Eighty Days, their brand new original debut graphic novel from A.C. Esguerra, about fighting the impossible odds to find love under the shadow of war, available tomorrow. 

‘Jay wants nothing more than to fly. Or so he thinks, until he crosses paths with a mysterious thief named Fix whose tricks and charms draw him into the struggle against the looming aviation guild to which Jay owes his very being. As Jay becomes further entangled in the turbulence of Fix’s cause, each man must learn to navigate shifting allegiances, the fight for freedom, and the greatest adventure of all — love.’

Esguerra says

After seven long ink-spattered years, I’m beyond excited to have brought the historical romance epic of my dreams to life. It’s a whirlwind of high-flying adventure, noir-flavored pursuit, knife’s edge revolution and enduring, queer love and friendship that I hope resonates with readers of all kinds.

Print copies of Eighty Days will be available for sale September 1, 2021 at your local comic shops.
