This February, award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce the debut of Curb Stomp, a no-holds-barred, visceral look at the lengths one woman will go to protect her home. Rising star Ryan Ferrier (D4VE) is set to team up with newcomer artist Devaki Neogi to create the unflinching story of Machete Betty and the girls of The Fever, a gang fiercely committed to protecting their home of Old Beach.
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon said this about Curb Stomp, “Turf wars, fierce ladies, teeth-rattling action—Ryan and Devaki are going to be keeping readers on the edge of their seats with this series,” Mr. Gagnon went on to say, “It’s got everything we love about punk rock, and it’s got everything we love about a good story. There’s a lot of heart in this one. It’s just studded with spikes.”
In the story, Machete Betty leads a small gang of women under the self-appointed task of protecting their home of Old Beach, which is one of three boroughs surrounding a rich metropolitan city. When Betty takes the life of a rival gang member in an act of self-defense, she sets off a chain reaction of retaliation, gang warfare, and unlikely allies.
Curb Stomp #1 arrives in comic shops on February 25th from BOOM! Studios, with a main cover by Tula Lotay (Supreme Blue Rose), for the price of $3.99. Also available in limited quantities is a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Trevor Hairsine (Ultimate Six), and a retailer incentive cover by Marie Bergeron.
