The Avant-Guards #1

It’s no secret I’m a fan of Boom Studios, Lumberjanes is arguably my favorite comic, neigh one of my favorite pieces of fiction in existence. So I’m not surprised to say I think I’ve found another good one with the Avant-Guards.

Transferring into the Georgia O’Keeffe College of Arts and Subtle Dramatics, a historically all-female school Charlie Bravo is done with being there before she even arrives but after going to a activities fair out of boredom she catches the interest of Liv.

Liv is an aspiring actor and basketball enthusiast, and she thinks Charlie would be perfect for the school’s basketball team. Charlie is star basket ball player, but she’s done with teams.

If only Liv can get Charlie to give their fledgling basketball team one last shot and finally give the school the sports team it deserves, The Avant-Guards.


Boom makes another place I’d like to visit. I love the contrast of Liv and Charlie’s attitudes, the quips and the friendship starting to form. I’m really looking forward to where things go in the next issue and maybe learning about some more of the other team members.

Also Liv is smart, she talks about getting sports money for an art school and gathering donors and networking, she’s clearly ahead of the game and I’m sure this will serve her well in further issues.
