BOOM! Studios Gives A First Look At Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O
Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O from BOOM! Studios looks so sweet. I complain a lot about press releases. There’s a lot of comic news that’s just copy and pasted press releases and previews or “first looks” from publishers. It gets to the point that I really feel like there’s no real comic book industry news. Of course, then there’s the occasional event that happens.
Of course, then there’s the first look at a new series that makes me happy. Heavy Vinyl is by writer and filmmaker Carly Usdin and artist Nina Vakueva. It just looked so good, I had to share these pages.
Here’s the full press release.
Your First Look at HEAVY VINYL: Y2K-O! from BOOM! Studios
