Today Comics Beat broke the big, big news—Wings of Fire is coming to the world of graphic novels!
The first cover has been released, check it out:
Doesn't it looks spectacular?
Tui T. Sutherland also had a special message that I've been asked to pass on to you:
My kids and I are obsessed with comics and graphic novels. We read them together every night—Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, El Deafo, Amulet, and Nimona are some of our favorites. I love how art can add unexpected
layers to a story, and how perfect they are for kids like mine: wiggly bookworms who adore great stories, smart dialogue, and lots of visual details.
So when Scholastic asked whether I’d be interested in adapting my Wings of Fire series into graphic novels, I might have gotten a little bit enormously tremendously excited. To see my dragon characters and the world of Pyrrhia appear like this, in pages and pages of full-color art, is just so incredibly cool. There’s the littlest dragonet, Sunny, staring down their ominous visitor, giant Morrowseer! There’s Clay and Tsunami escaping their cave to fly in the open sky for the first time! There’s Queen Scarlet’s arena where dragon prisoners fight to the death! It feels as though all the pictures that have been fluttering around my head since I started writing the series are coming to life.
I can’t wait for the first Wings of Fire graphic novel adaptation, The Dragonet Prophecy, to be out in the world. I hope current readers will love seeing the dragons’ story in a new way, and I hope new readers discover this dragon universe and want to come play in it, too.
