Misfit City Heads to HBO Max
Another BOOM! Studios comic series is heading to HBO Max. Misfit City, created by Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith & Kurt Lustgarten and illustrated by Naomi Franquiz with Brittany Peer on color, and Jim Campbell lettering, is heading to the service. Popular writers Hannah Hafey and Kaitlin Smith will serve as creators and executive producers for the series, alongside Smith and Lustgarten. BOOM! Studios’ Stephen Christy, Ross Richie, and Mark Ambrose will also executive produce with Mette Norkjaer co-executive producing.
Misfit City is a treasure hunting story through a unique female lens. In the original pitch, it was described as the girls version of The Goonies.
BOOM! has been spreading things around with R.L. Stine’s Just Beyond coming to Disney+, BRZRKR, Something is Killing the Children, and Mech Cadets all in development at Netflix, and Slam! also being developed for HBO Max.
