Grace Randolph’s Supurbia For Boom! Comics (UPDATE)

Posted by December 16, 2011 Comment

Bleeding Cool’s very own Grace Randolph has a new superhero comic book to be published in March from Boom!, Supurbia. Drawn by Russell Dauterman, and modelled on modern reality TV, this looks like a sex-filled, alpha female, superhero comic. Here’s the solicitation.

What goes down when the capes come off? Meet the Real Housewives of Earth’s greatest super-team, the Meta Legion! It’s the egos, the tantrums, and the betrayals of the super set. Find out what happens behind the masks as superhero families are faced with the sordid problems of everyday life – and then some! From rising star writer Grace Randolph (Marvel’s Nation X, Her-oes) and hot new artist Russell Dauterman, this series takes the familiar super-team and turns it on its head with a scandalous, TMZ-fueled look at what it’s like to live with a superhero!

Damn, Grace, you kept it quite a secret…

UPDATE: Grace Randolph writes;

This was a hard secret to keep, Rich!  In the past – as I’m sure many people have experienced as well – I’ve mentioned something cool I was working on, only to have it fall through!  It’s made me a believer in “THE JINX”!  Dum, dum, DUM!
But now that “Supurbia” is officially announced, I am very excited to share it with everyone!  I first pitched the concept to Matt Gagnon at New York Comic Con back in 2010 – evidence that yes, you need to go to comic book conventions!  Happily Ross Richie really sparked to it and so I’ve been working on it ever since with Ross, editor Eric Harburn, and the fabulously gifted artist Russell Dauterman.
Like most readers, I really love superhero comics so I’m excited to explore them in a different way.  We always follow the hero as he swoops off, but what if we stayed behind with his girlfriend?  What is it REALLY like to live with a superhero?  I hope everyone will pick-up “Supurbia” as it looks to answer those questions and more.
And there will certainly be more news and previews to come in the lead-up to the March debut, particularly here on Bleeding Cool.  :)
