BOOM! Studios Announces New Magical Girls Mini ‘Save Yourself!’ Due In June 2021

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios announced Save Yourself!, a magical new four-issue original series from the team behind Pandora’s Legacy. Written by Bones Leopard and illustrated by Kelly & Nichole Matthews, Save Yourself! is perfect for fans who grew up loving Magical Girls and are ready to step up and save the world, no matter who they have to face, available in June 2021.

‘What if Magical Girls aren’t Earth’s champions after all? The world’s most beloved heroes Aoe, Thel, and Gen, better known as the Lovely Trio, first burst onto the scene five years ago when they saved Earth from a surprise space monster attack!

Since then, everyone–including Gigi, whose brother died as a bystander in a Lovely Trio battle–idolizes them as superheroic pop icons. But when Gigi witnesses the Lovely Trio battling a monster firsthand, she sees something that causes her to question everything she thought she ever knew about her heroes!’

Leopard says

Save Yourself! is a passion project that I’m so excited to finally bring to life. I’ve always wanted a chance to combine my love for Magical Girls with my love of kaiju, and once Kelly and Nichole Matthews were onboard with their fantastic art, I knew it was going to be an amazing ride.

Save Yourself! #1 features main cover art by series artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews (who are twin sisters, and totally NOT four cats in a trenchcoat),  a Magical Girl variant cover by Stephanie Gonzaga, and variant cover art by illustrator Kevin Wada.

Check out the early preview art below, and look for Save Yourself! #1 at your local comic shop in June 2021.
