BOOM! Dunks with a First Look at The Avant-Guards #1

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at The Avant-Guards #1, the riveting start to an all-new twelve issue series in January 2019 from writer Carly Usdin and artist Noah Hayes where it’s all about finding the courage to shoot your shot.

Olivia “Liv” Bates is determined to jump start the first basketball league ever for art colleges, and while the Georgia O’Keeffe College of Arts and Subtle Dramatics isn’t necessarily known for its team sports, she’s got all the missing pieces except one: the final member of her basketball team. Which is where new student Charlie Bravo comes in.

Charlie is a recent transfer to the historic women’s art college and, for some mysterious reason, has decided to leave her glory days as a basketball star behind. If only Liv can convince a reluctant Charlie to lace up her shoes and get back on the court with their ragtag team, her dream of an art school basketball team could come alive! And Charlie might just find the friendship and community she’s looking for at this brand new school.

The Avant-Guards #1 features a main cover by Hayes and a variant cover by Veronica Fish and comes to shelves January 23, 2019.

Fall in Love with Grease Bats!

BOOM! Studios has announced Grease Bats, the first original graphic novel inspired by the online phenomenon created by Archie Bongiovanni. Arriving in stores July 2019, this over-sized collection of Archie Bongiovanni’s hit webcomic, previously seen on the Autostraddle Saturday Morning Cartoons series, features brand-new stories only available here, making it a must-have for fans and new readers alike.

Grease Bats follows the daily adventures of two best friends — Andy, a trans genderqueer individual who is both tough and loving, and their BFF Scout, an all-feelings-all-the-time mistake-maker — as they navigate friendships, roommates, and romances within their community. From sexcapades gone awry to the meaning of tarot and the realities of finding your place within queer spaces, these stories use wry humor to show that being queer comes from the heart! And the head!  And occasionally sometimes the groin!

Grease Bats will be available for sale at local comic book shops and bookstores in July 2019.
