Bad Island by Doug TenNapel is out this month! It’s in full colour and published by Graphix – an imprint of Scholastic books.
Something on this island is up to no good…
When Reese is forced to go on a boating trip with his family, the last thing he expects is to be shipwrecked on an island-especially one teeming with weird plants and animals. But what starts out as simply a bad vacation turns into a terrible one, as the castaways must find a way to escape while dodging the island’s dangerous inhabitants. With few resources and a mysterious entity on the hunt, each secret unlocked could save them…or spell their doom. One thing Reese knows for sure: This is one Bad Island.
Bad Island is available in Paper-back (with a bumpy relief!) or Hard-cover.
I worked on Bad Island last year as lead colourist. There’s more information about the colour side of Bad Island on my illustration site.
