2016’s Kim & Kim, from Magdalene Visaggio, Eva Cabrera, and Claudia Aguirre was named by Bleeding Cool as one of Six Comics That Made 2016 Fun, and helped earn Visaggio a spot on Bleeding Cool’s Top 11 Hot Comic Writers Of January 2017. Teaming Visaggio with Memetic artist Eryk Donovan and again with Kim & Kim collaborator Aguirre for an action-packed punk rock teenage super-science adventure, publisher Black Mask is poised to have another critically acclaimed, fan-favorite hit with Quantum Teens Are Go, in stores this week.
Does it live up to the hype? We’ve read the first issue, and if our opinion matters to you, then the answer is hell yeah! But you don’t have to listen to us. Here’s what other famous and important industry types are saying about Quantum Teens Are Go:
“It’s everything you want out of comics, a smart new angle on tried and true sci-fi.”
– JAMES TYNION IV (Detective Comics)
“The rare characters that are both utterly charming AND genuinely believable – in a world rendered with just as much surprise and honesty.”
– JAMES ASMUS (All New Inhumans)
“Inventive, rebellious, true – QUANTUM TEENS ARE GO shoots modern teenage drama through a lens of retrofitted junkyard Science Fiction, where the road to self-discovery could become a galactic wormhole at any moment.”
– STEVE ORLANDO (Midnighter & Apollo)
“Mad science as an underground LA punk scene. I can’t wait to see what Natalie and Sumesh unleash.”
– JODY HOUSER (Faith, Rogue One)
“Starts with a girl braining a robot with a pair of bolt cutters, which pretty much sets the tone for the whole thing. Super science and high school are a great mix, and Visaggio and Donovan give it the crackling energy and verve it demands and deserves.”
– JUSTIN JORDAN (Green Lantern: New Guardians, Luther Strode)
“I’m always down for a book where characters SMART their way out of problems instead of punching their way out of problems. Makes it sweeter when the punches (and lasers) get thrown!”
– DONNY CATES (God Country)
In stores this Wednesday, February 22, Quantum Teens Are Go retails for $3.99. Check out the solicit and preview
Mad science is the punkest shit there is. Teenage sweethearts Nat & Sumesh spend their nights breaking into abandoned superlabs to steal the parts they need to build a time machine – and they’ve just found the most important part. But mysterious entities keep trying to stop them from turning it on. Now all they’ve gotta do is hang on long enough to figure out why.
Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) and Eryk Donovan (Memetic) bring you a high-octane adventure full of robots, muscle cars, and queer-ass skater punks.
