The NY Times has run an article highlighting the Boom Box imprint at Boom! Studios, including the likes of Lumberjanes, Giant Days and Goldie Vance, and also mentioning a brand new series for August.
It confirms rumours that Bleeding Cool had previously reported, stating the James Tynion IV has a Lumberjanes-similar series lined up for the publisher.
Backstagers by James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh begins in August and focusses on the theatre crew at a boys' private school (public school for us Brits), featuring "tweens-to-teens". The article also stresses a cast diverse in race and sexual orientation. Tynion states "I wanted to create the book for the young queer boy who feels an outcast and doesn't see that much of him reflected… I want that reader to call this book his own."
