The battle for Vermonia begins! Fabulous manga artwork highlights this graphic tale of four friends who hold the fate of three worlds in their hands.
On a distant Blue Star, Mel, Jim, Naomi, and Doug — friends obsessed with their garage band — dont seem that different from any of the other twelve-year-old skateboarders at Union Middle School. But everything changes when Mel is kidnapped and imprisoned in a world called the Turtle Realm. As her friends rush to save her, guided by the magical squelp Satorin, they find a world terrorized by a conquering army, a land whose villagers only hope is an ancient prophecy foretelling the arrival of four heroes. Will they be brave enough to release their true warrior spirits — and return the rightful queen to her throne?
Four ordinary 14-year-old skateboarders have no idea the time has come for them to fulfill an ancient prophecy. Soon they discover their true warrior spirits in an epic battle to save the planet of Vermonia.
Mel's life spirals out of control when she is kidnapped by one of General Uro's henchmen and imprisoned in another world. Her friends and bandmates, Doug, Naomi, and Jim, waste no time trying to save her. With Satorin, the magical squelp as their guide, they enter the Turtle Realm and soon discover that it is not only Mel who needs their help. General Uro's conquering army has spread terror far and wide. Hope for the villagers lives on only in an ancient prophecy that foretells the arrival of four brave warriors from Blue Star. Now Doug, Jim, Naomi, and Mel must embrace their destinies and release their true warrior spirits. There will be no other way to win this battle, return Queen Frasinella to her throne, and save Vermonia.
