Official Press Release

Zune Arts, the program that aims to bring the best creative minds together to collaborate on inspiring works of art, is producing a graphic novel titled "The Lost Ones" written by Steve Niles, author of 30 Days of Night. "The Lost Ones" chronicles the adventures of Duncan, Roxy, Rasheed and Cynthia, who leave their Earth and are swept up in an epic intergalactic adventure. A different graphic artist will illustrate each of the four chapters, creating a genre-bending take on visual storytelling.

The novel's four artists - 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, Morning Breath, Brooklyn-based art and design duo, and emerging painter/fashion designer Kime Buzzelli - each bring a remarkable and unique drawing style to the project.

"The Lost Ones" gives us the chance to extend the Zune Arts platform by tapping into new genres and audiences," said Rob Schaltenbrand, Zune Arts Brand Manager. "We're excited to work with such a talented group of artists and storytellers to bring this project to life"

Zune Arts is a program that offers emerging and established artists a unique collaboration opportunity and platform to share their work with a broader audience. At the heart of Zune Arts are ideas about friendship, sharing, connecting and discovery that serve as both a guide for artists' work and an ethic for the art that's produced through this program.
