Second star to the right and straight on till morning.’ That’s the cryptic clue cooler than cool rocker Peter Pan gave to Wendy Darling and Tiger Lilly. You know what that means – the underground NVRLND party is back on! The Lost Boys are going to play a set at the party, and everyone who is anyone will be there. There are only two problems. One, Wendy is grounded, and two, that means Hook and his band of pixie pushing pirates will be there too. The kids of Hollywood High are getting so high they never land, James Hook wants to grasp control of that scene no matter the cost. Tonight Peter Pan and James Hook will fight for the right to control NVRLND. Tonight we see if Peter Pan knows how to fly!

PopCultHQ’s Comic Book Review: NVRLND #2 (of 4)
Just got my hands on an advance copy of ‘NVRLND’ #2 from 451 Media Group a couple of days ago and with how much issue one (released last Wednesday, 8/10) impressed me, I had to dive into the next issue of the series and all I can say is WOW! My review of issue one highlighted the brilliance of the title. The following day, 451 Media released a music video (which can be found below – a MUST SEE!) featuring musical group The Raveonettes. The video was masterfully made and gave a sense of watching a trailer, but not for a movie or tv series, but for a comic book! This rare method of promotion for the comic book miniseries not only captured the essence of the title through its terrific directing, it was inspired by this second issue and they couldn’t have been more spot on.

Synopsis for NVRLND #1:
NVRLND is a dark and magical retelling of Peter Pan set in the present-day landscape of Hollywood. Wallflower turned wild-child Wendy Darling befriends the fierce Tiger Lily and falls into the music rave scene of the underground club NVRLND. Intoxicated by the music, Wendy falls for the enigmatic Peter, lead singer of the band The Lost Boys. Peter is everything a girl could desire: handsome, daring, and reckless. Wendy discovers Peter is mixed up with the mysterious tattoo artist James Hook, who preys upon the young who flock to Peter, “hooking” them on the new designer drug, Pixie Dust. You think you may know the truth about NVRLND, but the truth is, you know nothing. NVRLND is a story for anyone who never wants to grow up, but may not live long enough to have a chance.
451 Media Group is proud to present the original music video accompaniment to the launch of Dylan Mulick and Stephanie Salyers’s exciting new graphic novel, NVRLND.
