BOOM! Studios has found success with sports focused comics such as Fence, and Dodge City, so has manga with some of the most popular being of the sports genre. Today, BOOM! has announced their latest series The Avant- Guards, an all-new twelve issue series in January 2019 from writer Carly Usdin and artist Noah Hayes where finding what you’re looking for on and off the court is the toughest shot of all!
Welcome to the Georgia O’Keeffe College of Arts and Subtle Dramatics, an historically all-female school whose population is decidedly more drama geek than jock. Liv, aspiring actor and basketball enthusiast, doesn’t understand why she can’t be both, but she seems alone in that belief…until Charlie.
Charlie is a recent transfer, a former star basketball player, and the answer to all of Liv’s problems. She’ll stop at nothing to get the reluctant Charlie to join the ragtag group of misfits that make up their fledgling team.
The Avant- Guards #1 features a main cover by Hayes and a variant cover by Veronica Fish andwill be available for sale in January 2019.
