LOS ANGELES, CA – Fan-favorite writer Tony Fleecs (Stray Dogs) and acclaimed illustrator Dave Wachter (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) team up for a wild ride of cartoon mayhem, family drama, and deadly secrets in Uncanny Valley at BOOM! Studios, coming Spring 2024!
Oliver is a seemingly typical 12 year old boy…except for a mysterious family history that seems to start and end with his mother. Oh, and his unexplainable powers, that is.
He can do things other boys can’t, to the point of landing himself in some trouble. Baffled by the surreal, cartoonish nature of his abilities, and followed by a murder of peculiar crows, Oliver begins to pull the thread on the secrets his family has kept from him for so long…
Uncanny Valley #1 features covers by Dave Wachter and Tony Fleecs, along with Brett Bean (I Hate Fairyland) and Dan Mora (Klaus).
“Uncanny Valley is a book that I’ve wanted to make for years. I’m so excited to be making it with the impossibly talented Dave Wachter and with BOOM! Studios,” said writer Tony Fleecs. “It’s a big huge story set in two giant worlds with all sorts of magic and mystery and robots and skeletons but it’s centered on this little tiny family. Those are my favorite kinds of stories.”
“It’s awesome how things work out sometimes. Tony Fleecs is one of my favorite people and favorite writers, too,” said artist Dave Wachter. “When he told me about this idea for a story years ago, I thought ‘That’s a great idea!’ Now we get to make it, along with BOOM! Studios, who puts out some of the best looking books anywhere. With Uncanny Valley, I’m stretching into new territory and having a blast at the same time.”
“Who Framed Roger Rabbit by way of Something Epic is a good starting point to describing this insane story Tony and Dave have built,” said series editor Jon Moisan. “It’s full of heart, hilarity, and cartoon violence. What’s not to love?”
Uncanny Valley #1 will be available in comic shops April 10, 2024. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including Kindle, iBooks, and Google Play.
