Magnetic Press to release Tony Sandoval’s ‘Doomboy’

doomboyTony Sandoval’s award-winning graphic novel Doomboy will be released in English for the first time this fall by Magnetic Press.

An Official Selection of the 2012 Angouleme International Comics Festival and winner of the Coup de Coeur prize, it’s a coming-of-age story about a lonely teenager who, after the sudden death of his girlfriend, decides to broadcast songs to her beyond the grave under the name “Doomboy.” However, he doesn’t realize those broadcasts are being picked up across town and beyond, leading his life to be turned upside down.

“I have waited for this moment for a while, and I think Doomboy is my favorite story I’ve written so far,” said Sandoval, whose other works include Nocturno, The Corpse and the Couch and, most recently, The Sea Serpent. “I am curious how the American market will accept Doomboy, because the market is very different from Europe, but of course I am very happy to see it released in English.”

Doomboy is set for release in September.

A friend from Europe, who’s an avid fan of comic books, told be about Doomboy once and was very eager to show it to me. He loved it very much and was even willing to translate and explain everything to me, but I didn’t want to give him all the trouble. Now that it has an English version, I can finally read it myself. I can’t wait for September!
