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.
