Boom! Cancels Freaks Squeele


It was to have been a six-issue series launching in June. But it seems now that not even one issue will be released.


Freaks Squeele is a French manga series by Florent Maudoux is a superhero university book focusing on Chance, a demon girl, Wolfshade, a werewolf, and Xiong Mao, who has no superpowers and is described as "a fun story that fans of X-Men, Teen Titans, and Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner's Power Girl may enjoy."

Sadly they don't seem to have had the chance. Boom reps tell me,

Archaia will be canceling the solicitation for Freaks Squeele and will not be publishing the series. It's a terrific series and the creator, Florent Maudoux, and his publisher, Ankama, nothing but success in finding the perfect US publishing partner for it.


But if you fancy a little translation, six volumes and a number of spinoffs are available in French.
