How Do You Handle Defeat? A First Look At Avant-Guards #7

by Hannah Means Shannon

We’re delighted to share an Exclusive First Look today from the upcoming 7th issue of The Avant-Guards, published by Boom! Studios. The twelve-part series is written by Carly Usdin (Heavy Vinyl) and illustrated by artist Noah Hayes (Wet Hot American Summer) and features a group of friends who band together to build the first ever basketball team at their historic women’s art college. Our 7th issue will be available in stores on August 21, 2019!

Boom! Studios teases:

The Avant-Guards’ hot streak has ended in a resounding loss, and team’s dealing with the disappointment, although it looks like team captain Olivia “Liv” Bates is taking it particularly hard. Even Charlie can’t shake her out of her funk. As the members of the Avant-Guards each deal with the defeat in their own ways, Liv is pushing everyone away just when she needs them most. Can Charlie get through to Liv in time to save their fractured team and budding relationship? Or does this spell the end for Liv’s dreams for this ragtag team and her star player?

Here’s our First Look at issue #7!

The Avant-Guards #7 features a main cover by Hayes and a variant cover by Cara McGee (Black Canary: Ignite, Dodge City).

Print copies of The Avant-Guards #7 will be available for sale on August 21, 2019 at local comic book shops (use 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.
