Coming this February, from BOOM! Studios, is the debut of Curb Stomp. Written by Ryan Ferrier (D4VE), with art by Devaki Neogi Curb Stomp tells the story of Machete Betty and the girls of The Fever, a gang committed to protecting their home. They have the self-appointed task of protecting Old Beach, one of three boroughs surrounding a rich metropolitan city.
Boom Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon described the series as:
Turf wars, fierce ladies, teeth-rattling action—Ryan and Devaki are going to be keeping readers on the edge of their seats with this series. It's got everything we love about punk rock, and it's got everything we love about a good story. There's a lot of heart in this one. It's just studded with spikes.
Anything that's compared to Rat Queens is a good enough sell for me. When I saw that I was immediately intrigued. It's funny because the names of the main characters definitely have a Rat Queens sassy vibe: Machete Betty, Derby Girl, Bloody Mary, Daisy Chain, and Violet Volt. I'm interested to see what this comic is going to be like and how this gang of headstrong women is going to get along. The cover looks awesome. Curb Stomp #1 arrives in comic shops on February 25th.
