The Lost Ones chronicles the adventures of four friends—Duncan, Roxy, Rasheed and Cynthia—whose seemingly harmless day of extreme planet jumping turns into a mind-blowing, white-knuckle race for their lives to get back home. They find that home is no longer where they left it and the alien race, hell-bent on destroying them, isn’t getting any friendlier.
The graphic novel merges five distinct creative points of view to bring the story to life:
Dr. Revolt, an original member of the historic New York City graffiti crew the Rolling Thunder Writers.
Gary Panter, an illustrator known for his surreal and raw style.
Kime Buzzelli, an emerging painter and fashion designer.
Morning Breath, a Brooklyn-based art and design duo blending a graffiti style reminiscent of early ’80s street art.
Steve Niles, celebrated author of 30 Days of Night.
Zune Arts, a creative collective curated by Zune, Microsoft Corp.’s integrated digital entertainment brand, today released The Lost Ones, a graphic novel written by celebrated writer Steve Niles. For the Zune-commissioned novel, Niles was paired up with visual artists Dr. Revolt, Gary Panter, Kime Buzzelli and Morning Breath to take the reader on an epic journey through time and space. Each artist illustrated a different chapter of the novel, resulting in a blend of artistic styles that is emblematic of the unique creative collaborations for which Zune Arts has become widely known.
“Working with these four talented artists on this project was a delight,” Niles said. “Zune Arts was the gateway that allowed us to show what’s possible when artists of different backgrounds and unique styles collaborate to create something larger than the sum of its parts.”
