Kim & Kim #2 – Preview
Kim & Kim is the latest series from Black Mask Studios that impresses us. The first issue stood out due to it’s fun tone and a willingness to show the characters just being real. We’ll definitely have a review of this issue later. For now, we hope you are satisfied with the preview pages Black Mask sent us. We are warning you, that the press release does have some profanity in it.
KIM & KIM #2. The second issue is on its way & packs in a whole lot o’ awesome!
Kim & Kim return on August 31st with their interstellar journey of friendship, adolescent mischief, and cephalopod mania. Will they chase down that fucking ridiculous bounty? Will Kim Q. reconcile with her douchey dad? Uh, will they come up with enough cash to buy more booze? Not yet, because first they gotta get into some barfights and accidentally tear open a rift in the fabric of spacetime or something! Fighting and science together at last!

WHAT IS IT?
KIM & KIM is a day-glo action adventure that’s bursting with energy and enthusiasm and puts queer women and trans women front and center.
Badass besties Kim and Kim are out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement – and they very quickly end up in way over their heads.
Blending the punk exuberance of TANK GIRL with the buddy adventure wackiness of SUPERBAD (if Michael Cera was a trans woman and Jonah Hill a queergirl partner in crime), Kim & Kim focuses on the power and meaning of female friendships as engines of validation. A bright, happy, punk rock sci fi adventure that is queer as shit.
WHO MADE IT?
Kim & Kim is the breakout debut for writer Magdalene Visaggio, taking the comic market by storm with creative team Eva Cabrera (Bravest Warriors) and Claudia Aguirre (Malice Is-). Visaggio’s goal to “put queer women front and center” along with the team’s sharp storytelling and unique style that matches edge with gloss brings a cool new point of view to comics.
