Happy Wednesday Fankind! It looks like the weather has cleared for a bit, so now is a great time to pick up some new comics, including:


AVANT-GUARDS from Boom! Studios. Welcome to the Georgia O’Keeffe College of Arts and Subtle Dramatics, a historically all-female school whose population is decidedly more drama geek than jock. Liv, aspiring actor and basketball enthusiast, doesn’t understand why she can’t be both, but she seems alone in that belief… until Charlie. Charlie is a recent transfer, a star basketball player, and the answer to all of Liv’s problems. She’ll stop at nothing to get Charlie to join the ragtag group of misfits that make up their fledgling basketball team.

• Carly Usdin (Heavy Vinyl) and Noah Hayes (Goldie Vance) present a touching tale about finding what you’re looking for… on and off the court.


BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #2 from Boom! Studios. The reimagining of Joss Whedon’s groundbreaking series continues as Drusilla, the self-proclaimed Mistress and her pet, Spike, make their debut with their sights set on Buffy! Meanwhile, Giles is determined to teach Buffy about her destiny, responsibility, blah blah…can someone tell him to chill? How bad can it get? Welcome back to the Hellmouth! Written by Jordie Bellaire with art by Dan Mora.


Pick up issues #1 and #2 of both of these great new series, plus a whole lot more, today at Brian’s Comics! See you soon.
