James Tynion IV And Rian Sygh Raise The Curtain On New Boom Box Series ‘Backstagers’

Backstagers Featured

Boom Box, Boom Studios' young adult imprint, has been one of the go-to places for top quality comics that not only provide representation for people who often don't see themselves reflected in the stands at their local store, but also provide excellent stories in and of themselves. The likes of Goldie Vance, Jonesy and Giant Days are some of the most consistently fun and exciting comics being published right now, and today we learned of a brand new series joining the fold.

Announced as part of a piece at The New York Times celebrating the imprint, Backstagers by James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh follows a group of theater crew kids from an all-boys private school who get whisked away to an alien world. The new series is described by the Times as a mirror image of the acclaimed hit seriies Lumberjanes, and promises to be just as diverse, welcoming, and exciting.

Tommy’s Dreams Get Really, Really Weird In ‘Power Rangers’ #3 [Preview]

Power Rangers #3, Boom! Studios

Power Rangers is pretty much perfect as it already is, but if there was one single flaw in the entire franchise, I think we can all agree that it would be the fact that the show is very rarely a deep psychological drama. I mean, there's that one episode of Ninja Storm where we see the Red Ranger huddling naked in a room full of eyes as part of a dream sequence, and there are Dr. K's flashbacks in RPM, but other than that, you never really get to see the harrowing effects of being brainwashed by a Moon Witch.

CBS' Supergirl adaptation proved to be one of the highlights of the past year's season of television, packed with action, drama, excitement and a whole lot of heart.
