Comic Sans: Coming Soon – Coady and the Creepies #1

As every new comic reader knows, Wednesday is new comic book day. This Wednesday, BOOM! Box (an imprint of BOOM! Studios focusing on new and experimental comics) will release the first issue of a new title, Coady and the Creepies.

The book is billed as a horror/comedy/drama which means it touches just a little bit of everything. And, being the experimental line, BOOM! Box and the book’s creators are also releasing a music video to coincide with the book’s release, which you can see… right now! (Along with the associated Press Release…)

Los Angeles, Calif. (March 13, 2017) – BOOM! Studios is proud to unveil a lyric music video for “Creepies R Go,” the anthem for the punk band The Creepies in BOOM! Studios’ new BOOM! Box comic, COADY AND THE CREEPIES, by award-winning comics creator Liz Prince (Tomboy, Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed?) and artist Amanda Kirk.

The song was created by Liz Prince and Danny Bailey of the pop-punk band Jabber.

From BOOM! Box comes Coady and the Creepies! 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.
