Screen-Shot-2017-12-14-at-10.49.44-AM

New York, NY (December 12, 2017)—HarperCollins Publishers announced today the acquisition of YouTube stars PopularMMOs’ debut graphic novel, POPULARMMOS PRESENTS A HOLE NEW WORLD! North American rights were brokered by Fullscreen and sold to David Linker, Executive Editor, HarperCollins Children’s Books.

YouTube stars Pat and Jen, exclusively represented by Fullscreen, are the creators behind PopularMMOs, one of the most popular channels in the world, with over 13 million subscribers and 10 billion views.  In this wholly original, four-color, jacketed hardcover graphic novel adventure, they bring everyone’s favorite characters to life. Join Pat and Jen, one magical unicorn, one talking cloud, an enormous golem, an oblivious cat, and many more on a thrilling adventure to save their friend, battle the undead, and escape the hole new world they’ve crashed into.

Fans of DanTDM: Trayaurus and the Enchanted Crystal and Zach King: My Magical Life will love the PopularMMOs graphic novel adventure, filled with hilarious jokes, thrill-a-minute action, and beloved characters. 

When Pat and Jen stumble into a hidden hole while playing hide-and-seek, they find that they’re trapped in a dangerous underworld and that their good friend, Bomby, has been kidnapped! Now it’s up to our daring duo and their “friend” Carter to battle the zombies, find the castle, and get back home before it’s too late. Can Pat and Jen find Bomby and flee the underworld before they get zombified by the evilest villain of them all—Evil Jen?

“Bringing our debut graphic novel to life was an amazing process working alongside HarperCollins and Fullscreen,” said Pat and Jen. “We can’t wait for our fans to get their hands on it and interact with their favorite characters!”

“I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Pat and Jen of PopularMMOs on their first-ever graphic novel,” says David Linker, Executive Editor, HarperCollins Children's Books. “Seeing how they brought their online world to life was as fascinating as it was thrilling, and I can’t wait to see the reactions when they share this hilarious, brilliantly illustrated adventure with their millions of fans.”
