BOOM! Studios Invites Us to Solve the Mysteries of LOTUS LAND in Series Preview

Heading to comic book stores in November, BOOM! Studios has given us our first look at the upcoming LOTUS LAND #1.



Lotus Land (BOOM! Studios)

Eisner-winning and Harvey-nominated writer and director Darcy Van Poelgeest (Little Bird) is joined by artist Caio Filipe (Stranger Things: Tales From Hawkins) and colorist Patricio Delpeche (Angel) for a timely look at the human condition, set in a dystopic, cyberpunk future that’s as grounded as it is metaphysical. Welcome to Lotus Land, coming November 2023 from BOOM! Studios.

Vancouver, years from now. In a future painted with ultramodern decay, entropy has met its match in the Keeper Program, a breakthrough in cutting edge technologies that’s seemingly capable of miracles. When an attack on the mysterious program threatens the lives of everyone tied to it, retired detective Bennie Strikman is called out to investigate one last case…

The debut issue features a main cover by Alex Eckman-Lawn (Dead Boy Detectives) with variants by Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom), and Ian Bertram (Little Bird) with Gus Storms (Egos). Get a first look at the covers right here…

“Lotus Land is many things; science fiction, noir, supernatural. But mostly it’s a story about parenthood and the difficulty of never saying goodbye. To read Lotus Land is to take a walk through the wet streets of a city that has come to life on its own terms, where its citizens are more connected to the street lamp they stand beneath than they are each other. But something is pushing back beneath it all, dislodging infrastructure, and disrupting neural pathways. And through those cracks seep long buried secrets that threaten this utopia and all it has promised us. I couldn’t be more excited for readers to take this journey with us, immersing themselves in the world that Caio Filipe and Patricio Delpeche have so masterfully brought to life,” said Van Poelgeest.

“It’s impressive that in noir science fiction, which are so creatively sharp with the best that these genres can offer, what delights me most about Lotus Land is the relatable, raw, and philosophical themes that loom over the story. I just feel lucky to work with the brilliant Darcy Van Poelgeest closely in such a beautiful, poetic – and often devastating – story. So, prepare your hearts,” said Filipe. 

“What sets Lotus Land apart is that in this brilliantly thought out, high-concept cyberpunk dystopia, Darcy and Caio also manage to zero in on the beating heart at its core. Lotus Land is a tragic personal story with mind-bending stakes—and it is, ultimately, deeply human,” said series editor Allyson Gronowitz.

Lotus Land #1 will be available in comic shops November 15, 2023. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Kindle.
