Dating. Friendships. Work life balance. It's tough to be a young woman in the city, especially when you can fly.
Can the the all-girl superteam BOOM!SQUAD protect their hometown from menacing corporate powerhouse Mr. Goode? Will their boyfriends, a trio of musicians playing in the city's worst rock and roll band, cause more problems than their worth? And where can a girl find a good latte without having to go to a corporate coffee chain?
Boom!Squad is an 80 page color graphic novel with something fun for comic readers young and old. Discover an engaging superhero tale with dynamic artwork, sharp dialogue, and just a hint of self-consciousness. Fans of genre-busting creators like Mike Allred, Brian Vaughan, Daniel Clowes, Matt Groening and the Hernandez brothers will love this witty and wild story of superpowered young women.
