Death Can’t Stop Punk Rock In ‘Coady and the Creepies’ From Liz Prince And Amanda Kirk [Exclusive]
It's hard being a young punk rock band on the road. It got even harder for Corey, Criss, and Coady, three sisters who make up a band called the Creepies, when an accident left Corey with a scarred face, Criss in a wheelchair, and Coady dead. But they can't give up now, when the band's just started getting attention. So all three of them keep going, including Coady. Maybe being a ghost will make her an even better drummer.
Coming from Boom Box in March 2017, Coady and the Creepies is a new series from writer Liz Prince, know for Tomboy and Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed?, and artist Amanda Kirk, a relative newcomer to comics, perhaps better known as the illustrator Nation of Amanda.

Punk isn’t dead...but Coady is.
Coady, Criss, and Corey are sisters and bandmates in the band The Creepies. After a van accident leaves Corey badly scarred and Criss in a wheelchair, they’re getting back into the punk scene.
But they still need to contend with the challenges of staying true to their punk ideals, while also dealing with the media attention they’ve attracted, as well as the tension surrounding the fact that Coady escaped the accident seemingly unscathed.
Now on tour, they’re fighting their way through the (sometimes literal) battle of the bands, earning enamel pins, and heading for the gig of their lives…so long as no one realizes that Coady is actually a ghost.
