Panini Publishing House  & BMW Motorrad 

In the beginning was the idea ... And when it takes shape, it can no longer be ignored. This is what happened with Markus Hofmann. One of the reasons why the renowned and longtime photographer is so successful is that while he keeps a cool and thoughtful head during his jobs, he also likes to be distracted and inspired far away from the camera. For example, his love of Star Wars comics. Fortunately, one can only say, because we have the inspiration for this first graphic novel from the BMW Motorrad and Panini Publishing House.

From Darkness to Light

When the world as we know it darkens, when evil strikes in an unknown form and with unimaginable severity to seize power, when machines turn against humanity, then three extraordinary heroines and a Black Rider come together to fight against the villain "Megavore" and to save the planet from destruction. Welcome to Riders in the Storm, the first graphic novel created in collaboration between BMW Motorrad and Panini Verlag GmbH.

Written by the Croatian author Darko Macan and illustrated by the well-known Italian comic book artist Riccardo Burchielli the limited edition graphic novel takes us full throttle on a journey into a fictional world full of extraordinary heroes and great motorcycles.
