Today we’re very pleased to debut at special First Look at the upcoming sixth issue of the heartwarming series The Avant-Guards from Boom! Studios. The twelve issue series comes to us from writer Carly Usdin (Heavy Vinyl) and artist Noah Hayes (Wet Hot American Summer) and features a ragtag group of friends who band together to build the first ever basketball team at their historic women’s art college. Issue #6 will be coming our way on June 26th this month.
Boom Studios teases:
The Avant-Guards are blazing past their competition as they head into a three-game streak where they’ll be facing teams from the MedCenter College of Endocrinology, the Royal Academy of Punk Rock, and the American Institute of Internet Influencers over four days! And in between all the games, they’ll be celebrating Ashley’s birthday with a karaoke party at the local bar, where a certain crush may or may not make an appearance. It’s gonna be a busy week for our favorite team of artistic ball players, but will they be able to handle all the heat, or will they lose control on the court?
Here’s our exclusive First Look at the interior art on #6!
The Avant-Guards #6 features a main cover by Hayes and a variant cover by Cara McGee (Black Canary: Ignite, Dodge City).
Print copies of The Avant-Guards #6 will be available for sale on June 26, 2019 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the Boom! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the Boom! Studios app.
