Kate Leth and Matt Cummings Power Up in a New Series
BOOM! Box, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, is delighted to announce the July debut of Power Up, a new limited series from New York Times bestselling author Kate Leth and artist Matt Cummings. Combining a deep love of Sailor Moon with the tongue-in-cheek humor of Scott Pilgrim, Power Up is the story of the most unlikely people (and goldfish) taking on the role of Magical Girl, whether they want it or not.
It has been foretold that four noble warriors of incredible strength would be gifted with cosmic abilities at a moment of planetary alignment…which, yeah, something definitely went a little weird here. Amie is a disaffected twenty-something with a lot on her plate, Kevin is a washed-up athlete way past his prime, Sandy’s a mother of two teenagers, and Silas…is a goldfish. Just a normal goldfish. Are we sure we read that prophecy right?
Power Up #1(of 6) arrives in comic shops on July 22nd with a main cover by series artist Matt Cummings for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAY151091. Also available in a limited quantity are a 10 Years incentive cover by Lucy Knisley, a retailer incentive cover by Babs Tarr, and an unlocked FOC variant cover that retailers can order in any quantity by Ian McGinty.
