NBA superstar, Steph Curry is celebrating sports superheroes in his upcoming graphic novel.
The four-time NBA champion is launching the graphic novel series titled “Stephen Curry Presents: Sports Superheroes,” in partnership with Penguin Workshop.
The first of the four planned installments will focus on retelling Curry’s career in the NBA and is scheduled for fall 2024.
The series will be created through the publishing arm of Unanimous Media, the company founded by Curry and Erick Peyton.
“We hope that when kids pick up the books in this series to read all about their favorite athletes, it not only instills excitement and grows their love for reading, but also inspires them to reach for the stars and accomplish their dreams,” Curry and Peyton said in a statement released Friday by Penguin Workshop, a Penguin Random House division.
Last month, Penguin released Curry’s picture book “I Have a Superpower.”
When asked about the book after it’s launch, Steph Curry said,
“We want to hopefully reach the next generation of kids that are dreaming big, are going to be the next leaders and game changers. We want them to be able to set their sights on what they want to accomplish in the world and really believe that it’s possible.”
The upcoming series will be written by Rich Korson and John Bycel, with illustrations by Damion Scott.
