    Tom Taylor & Jon Sommariva re-imagine Peter Pan & Neverland in two-book series for Penguin Random House & Glenat

    Writer Tom Taylor and artist Jon Sommariva are working together on a new graphic novel series imagining a wartime Peter Pan called Neverlanders. The first of two planned volumes is scheduled to go on sale in summer 2022 through Penguin Random House's Razorbill imprint (for English audiences) and Glenat (for French audiences).

    "A gritty modern fantasy tale set in the world of Peter Pan, this story follows a group of young runaways who have been spirited away by the last living Lost Boy. He's desperate for their help to save Neverland, which has become a warzone in Peter's absence," reads the synopsis of Neverlanders. "Along with General Tinkerbell and her fairy army, these lost teens will have to face-off against a merciless band of pirates until a new Pan has finally risen."

    Taylor and Sommariva will be joined on Neverlanders by color artist Michele Assarasakorn and letterer Wolfgang Bylsma.

    Although best known to comic audiences for his superhero work such as Injustice and DCeased, Taylor has a long history of all-ages work including the comic-turned-TV series The Deep.

    "Neverlanders is a story for now," Taylor says. "It feels like the exact right time for an epic tale of young people fighting for their future and standing against short-sighted, greedy adults."

    This will be Taylor and Sommariva's first time working together, but the two Australians tell Newsarama they've been talking about collaborating for the past 10 years.

    "I had been wanting to work with Tom for years. I witnessed this guy go from an unknown (to comics) playwright wanting to write comics to a guy who just wrote some local Indy comics to quickly becoming one of the top writers in our industry," Sommariva says. "All throughout our paths crossed and we flirted here and there with wanting to work together but the timing was just never right, until it was!"

    Neverlanders Book One goes on sale in summer 2022.

    and some background to Tom Taylor's writing:

    Between his current DCeased series at DC - two of them, with Dead Planet and the digital-first Hope at World's End - and the upcoming Dark Age at Marvel, Tom Taylor is the go-to writer for any story where your favorite heroes face overwhelming, apocalyptic threats… and lose. This shouldn't come as any surprise for anyone who read Injustice: Gods Among Us, the comic-book tie-in to the video game of the same name, which Taylor wrote for three years, and then returned to for the 2018 follow-up Injustice 2. .......................
