I may be the most excited when I get emails about any new issue or series from Mad Cave Studios. What I got to read today has definitely made my Monday much more palatable (as I'm rocking my Monday's huh shirt). I'm thoroughly excited to preview Bountiful Garden, which debuts in Previews on June 30th with a September 8th release date!
Bountiful Garden #1 (Mad Cave Studios)
| || |
In the year 2200, a team of teenage scientists are sent on a terraforming mission to a distant planet. Selected as the best and brightest of their generation, architect Jonas, botanist Marnie, biologist Jane, engineers Anya and Kamari, and security detail Kurt are all put into cryostasis expected to wake up when it is time to prepare to land on their assigned planet. When they are awakened abruptly, ten years early, halted above a strange planet, the teens are tasked with trying to figure out why they’re stalled – or what stalled them. As they break into two teams, one tasked with fixing the ship, the other with exploring the unknown planet below, they’re faced with an increasingly nightmarish scenario as they encounter a cosmic horror that seems to not only have attacked their ship, but also their minds..
With a set of teenage scientists abruptly awoken from cryogenic sleep, they need to figure out why they aren't quite at their planetary destination. Learning the roles of different children and some insight as to why they have taken this mission gives rapid insight into the world which is being built. I really believe Weir has done a great job jolting the readers into feeling the same sense of urgency which our teenage terraformers are experiencing. My heart was literally pounding from page 2 until the very end! In offering their thoughts on not just the series, but the creative team and process, Ivy says:
When I first came on to Bountiful Garden I was excited for the opportunity to do a Sci-Fi/Horror story. I do a lot of Horror but rarely get to do much Sci-Fi. As the story started coming together and we started seeing the different themes that were being explored, excitement just grew! Ivy did an amazing job getting us connected to the players in such a short amount of time. Giorgio's color work is amazing. His work improved mine 10 fold. The hardest thing about this book was stopping.”
