Two unlikely best friends learn to adapt when life doesn’t go their way in Jo & Rus, a middle grade graphic novel debuting in September from BOOM! Studios. The publisher has shared an early preview of the book which you can check out below.
At first, Jo and Rus don’t realize how much they have in common – she’s a middle schooler who’s constantly bullied and he’s a high schooler in a rock band. But when a mysterious one-eyed cat brings the two of them together, they quickly learn they’re both outcasts trying to figure out what they really want from life in a world where the odds are stacked against them. It’s only by becoming friends they discover who they are, who they want to be and what it takes for every one of us to find our own happiness!
Jo & Rus is written and illustrated by Audra Winslow and lettered by Mike Fiorentino. It’s set for release at your local comic shop on September 16th, 2020 and at bookstores and Amazon on September 22nd, 2020.
