Panels To Chords #1: Queer N’ Roll with Kim & Kim

KIM & KIM

Writer: Magdalene Visaggio, Artist: Eva Cabrera, Colorist: Claudia Aguirre, Letterer: Zakk Saam, Editor: Katy Rex, Covers: Tess Fowler w/ Kiki Jenkins, Devaki Neogi.

“Kim & Kim are twentysomething besties out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement. In a massive “screw you” to their parents and the authorities, they decide to hijack some high stakes bounty — and end up in way over their heads. Kim & Kim is a day-glo action adventure that’s bursting with energy and enthusiasm. It puts queer women and trans women front and center, with a story that embraces the absurd alongside realistic pathos.

“Blending the punk exuberance of TANK GIRL with the buddy adventure wackiness of SUPERBAD (if Michael Cera was a trans woman and Jonah Hill a queergirl partner in crime), Kim & Kim focuses on the power and meaning of female friendships as engines of validation. A bright, happy, punk rock sci fi adventure that is queer as shit.”
