Titan Comics are teaming up with four-time All-NBA Team player Rudy Gobert (representing the French National Team and the Minnesota Timberwolves, previously Utah Jazz) for an all-new YA graphic novel, BASH!
With art from artist Vince Serrano (Adidas, Sacramento Kings, Young Nudy), BASH! “tells the story of young Rudy, a poor kid from planet Nelilia, who dreams of being a star player of BASH – a brutal, high-octane, intergalactic version of basketball, whose players are rockstars, legends and gods.”
“Rudy has the heart and talent, but whilst he’s starting to get noticed by the teams and talent scouts, other, more sinister forces have started to creep out from the shadows, jealous of the rising young star. Can Rudy make it to the top, while threats come from every corner of the galaxy?”
Rudy Gobert said of this new project:
“This was surely a crazy feat when we started it. I wanted to tell a story that bolsters dedication and courage, which were so essential to my own personal journey. I hope that it will encourage readers to overcome their challenges and pursue their dreams.”
Titan Comics co-publishers Vivian Cheung and Nick Landau added:
“We were so impressed by Rudy and Vince’s infectious passion for the comics medium. With BASH!, readers of all-ages can expect a powerfully told story with incredible artwork that draws on a wide breadth of influence from across mediums.”
BASH! arrives in bookshops, comic shops, and on digital platforms on February 14th, 2023 from Titan Comics.
