THE ANIMAL KINGDOM REIGNS AT DARK HORSE
Renowned Spanish writer and artist Pau (Atlas and Axis) brought to life a completely wordless graphic novel for young readers, Baboon! which will be available in North America for the first time July 2020.
Originally published by Spanish publisher Escápula, Baboon! brings to life a sincere and endearing story all through Pau’s gorgeous art. After the death of its adopted leopard mother, an orphaned baboon wanders the wild in search of companionship and a sense of identity.
Luckily for our ape-hero, he stumbles upon the troop of baboons from which he was originally stolen, and falls in love with the troop’s head female. The young baboon will do anything to earn the affection of his new love interest and earn the respect of the animal kingdom while he’s at it.
