The Art School Basketball Team Story Concludes In ‘The Avant-Guards: Down To The Wire’ First Look

by James Ferguson

The Avant-Guards, the super fun comic following a group of misfit art students who band together to create their school’s first ever basketball team, is returning to wrap up its story with an original graphic novel later this month called Down to the Wire. Publisher BOOM! Studios has shared an early preview of the comic from writer Carly Usdin, artist Noah Hayes, colorist Eleonora Bruni, and letterer Ed Dukeshire. For those keeping track at home, this book picks up after The Avant-Guards #8.

School, romance, friends, and family collide in this epic conclusion to The Avant-Guards series as the team struggles to save their league! The final game of the season is here, the team has got to plan the perfect fundraiser, and everyone’s parents decided to show up to cheer them on during the most stressful time they could ever imagine. In the middle of it all, Liv and Charlie are figuring out just what it means to be “Liv-and-Charlie.”

 It’s Just A Lot For Everyone To Deal With. Luckily the entire existence of the league doesn’t depend on this one game or the Avant-Guards winning, right? Oh, wait . . . 

The Avant-Guards: Down to the Wire is set for release on September 30th, 2020 at your local comic shop and on October 6th, 2020 at bookstores and Amazon.
