BOOM! Studios has announced Misfit City, an all-new monthly comic book series from screenwriter Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Kurt Lustgarten, along with artist Naomi Franquiz, debuting in May 2017 from the groundbreaking BOOM! Box imprint.
Nothing’s happened in Wilder’s hometown since they filmed that cult kids’ adventure movie there in the ’80s…but that’s ancient history. Until one day, she and her friends come upon a centuries-old treasure map drawn by the infamous pirate Black Mary…and they find themselves on a real-life adventure in the town they dreamed of escaping.
Misfit City is a treasure hunting story through a unique female lens, girls need their version of The Goonies—and Misfit City is giving it to them.
Misfit City #1 will feature a main cover by Franquiz, along with a variant cover by Ester Zejn and a treasure map variant by Paulina Ganucheau.
