SUPERSTAR CREATORS: Author Tom Taylor and artist Jon Sommariva are juggernauts in the comic book world and have brought to life the most iconic characters and properties in the business, like the Avengers, Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, the X-Men, the Suicide Squad, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, and more. And together, they have sold over 11 MILLION comics!
OTHER STELLAR SUCCESSES: Tom has also had a lot of success outside of these licensed properties, demonstrating his wide appeal. In 2020, his Seven Secrets series was Boom’s bestselling creator-owned launch in the company’s history. And his previous series with them, the Deep, was developed into an animated show that can now be seen in 140 countries, including on Netflix in the US.
NOT YOUR PARENTS’ NEVERLAND: Tom and Jon have treated Peter Pan’s story the same as they would any of their other popular properties: staying true to the world and characters, but also putting their own spin on the story. Neverlanders tackles familiar themes, such as found family and what it means to grow up, with plenty of fun nods to the original. But it also has tons of diabolical twists, making it perfect for teens who gravitate toward gritty fairy-tale reimaginings like the Dorothy Must Die series.
INCREDIBLE REACH: Tom and Jon have a huge fan base on social media with over 270,000 followers across all their platforms. And many of their posts—including those about Neverlanders—get thousands of engagements! They also have tons of industry connections that we can utilize, such as when they got the series announced with an interview in Hollywood Reporter, which got picked up by outlets like IGN, Bleeding Cool, CBR, and SyFy.
