Image Comics recently announced a new series from critically acclaimed artist Jason Howard (Trees) as the writer and artist of his new creator driven action series Big Girls. This new ongoing comic book series will launch in August.
When men become giant monsters hellbent on destroying the world, only girls can stop them—Big Girls. Meet Ember—she writes poetry, loves to read, and she’s a 300-foot-tall full-time monster killer! She and the other big girls are all that stand in the way of our world’s complete annihilation!
In an exclusive scoop on the Big Girls announcement with The Hollywood Reporter, Howard said of the series: “[this is] the perfect comic for both the dynamic sci-fi I like to draw and for my writer side to examine questions of power, inequality and the complexity of growing up.”
Big Girls #1 will be available in print at comic book shops and digitally through popular reading apps on Wednesday, August 12.
Here’s a short preview in the meantime. Enjoy!
