Preview of John Allison’s New Series for Boom!
Staring next month, Boom! Studios will launch By Night, a twelve-issue monthly series written by John Allison (Giant Days) and illustrated by Christine Larsen (Adventure Time).
It’s “about coming home, discovering identity, and accidentally smashing a hole to another dimension”, and it will be available on June 13.
Aspiring documentarian (and actual chemistry major) Jane has recently reunited with her former best friend Heather, amateur urban explorer. When a trip into an abandoned industrial building leads them to another world, their plan begins to unfold — create a documentary about the world and become filthy, filthy rich. The other side of the portal is filled with monsters, magic and a chance for a whole new life. All they have to do is step through…
I really enjoy the way Allison treats and develops his characters in Giant Days, so I’m curious to see this series, particularly given the urban explorer angle.
