Last month Rich Johnston drew our attention to a new series coming out from Boom Studios! called Joyride. He speculated that The teen Sci-Fi adventure series by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly(Batman & Robin Eternal, Grayson) and Marcus To (Nightwing, New Warriors) could be a breakout ongoing hit for the publisher.
At the time we had seen the five page story that ran in the back of the Power Rangers comic and the covers for the first issue. Here we have a preview of the book that comes out on Wednesday.
Joyride #1 (of 4)
Writers: Jackson Lanzing & Collin P. Kelly
Artist: Marcus To
In the future, Earth sucks. The stars have been blocked out for so long that people have forgotten there was anything else besides the dumb World Government Alliance watching over them, training children to join the militarized Allied Youth and eliminating all resistance with a giant ray gun. Uma Akkolyte is a girl who shoots first and leaps before she looks, and when she gets a strange message from outside the barricades of SafeSky, she jacks a spaceship and punches through the stratosphere with an unlikely crew of teens who are totally not ready for what they're about to find.
