Slam! Returns as Miniseries

Slam! The Next Jam #1

I enjoyed reading Slam!, Boom! Studios’ roller derby comic series, so I was concerned when last month’s Previews catalog listed future issues as cancelled. The series, by Pamela Ribon and Veronica Fish, launched last November and ran monthly through issue #4 in February.

Now it’s returning as a four-issue miniseries called Slam! The Next Jam with a new artist. Fish will provide the cover but interior art is by Marina Julia, who has previously worked with Boom! on an Adventure Time issue and the Lumberjanes: Faire and Square Special. (Print Previews says Sam Beck because there was a change made after the catalog went to press. My thanks to Boom! for providing the clarification.)

The series is about two friends, new to derby, who find themselves through the sport but struggle with being on different teams.

There’s also a variant cover by Jen Bartel.
