Michael Stock, Sina Grace, and Hope Larson sign Penny Dora and The Wishing Box on Wednesday, November 5th at 7:00 PM.
Image Comics’ PENNY DORA & THE WISHING BOX – Once upon a time, “Part Time Punks” DJ and writer Michael Stock and artist Sina Grace (BURN THE ORPHANAGE, LI’L DEPRESSED BOY) conjured up a story about the ever-curious Penny Dora and the unexpected gift that arrives on her doorstep in PENNY DORA & THE WISHING BOX. This new fantasy adventure series will begin in November from Image Comics with a special 28-page first issue.
One day, a young girl named Penny Dora discovers a mysterious box on her front doorstep. It is a magic box with the power to grant wishes…but what she’s about to unwrap is the darker and creepier meaning behind the old adage, “be careful what you wish for.”
Stock cited his daughter for first inspiring him to write about Penny Dora’s adventures. “Penny Dora is actually based on a story my daughter Nico wrote when she was 8 years old for her school paper. The first issue is basically an expansion of her original story. S
ince then the story has grown through talks we had in the car on the way to school in the mornings via a playful papa/daughter back and forth game of ‘what if.’ The cat in the book, Iggy, is based on our cat (also named Iggy, and also a great lover of ham).”
Grace added: “The minute I read Michael’s scripts for the series, I was absolutely enchanted by Penny Dora and her world. It’s been a dream to breathe life into the adventures of fantastic and charming characters. I can’t wait for the world to see!”
PENNY DORA & THE WISHING BOX is an whimsical retelling of the Pandora myth and an all-ages fantasy adventure perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and Ted Naifeh’s Courtney Crumrin. Eisner Award winning cartoonist Hope Larson (A Wrinkle In Time, Mercury) provides the alternate cover for the 1st issue and lettering for the series.
