Boom! Studios is bringing us rather voluminous offerings in April and is also currently soliciting some trades, hardcovers, and original graphic novels for June. From original visions of dystopian worlds to frolics with our favorite cartoon characters, this listing has it all. It’s going to be an explosion of colorful stories for spring from Boom! Studios, and Boom! Box, Kaboom!, and Archaia imprints.

People like him are Godshapers, godless social pariahs with the ability to mold and shape the gods of others. Paired with Bud, an off-kilter but affectionate god without a human, the two travel from town to town looking for shelter, a hot meal, and the next paying rock’n’roll gig.

When a missing persons case lands on her desk, Gonzalez is forced to confront her own bloody past as she delves into the seedy underworld that’s bloomed after the alien departure.
