)In its third week at the B.O., "Coco" has headed the primary slot amid a sea of holdovers.

MAX BEMIS AND MICHAEL DIALYNAS INVITE YOU TO WITNESS LUCY DREAMING12/08/17 @ 11:04 pm EST
BOOM! Studios is psyched to announce DODGE CITY, a new sports comic/teen comedy series debuting March 2018 about the high-energy chaos, heightened drama, and exaggerated costumes of competitive dodgeball, and one team’s quest to make it all the way to the regional championships. Writer Josh Trujillo (Adventure Time
) and illustrator Cara McGee (Over the Garden Wall
) suit up to tell the story of the Jazz Pandas co-ed dodgeball team—the worst team in their league and made up of outcasts—and the efforts of their new captain, Tomás, who, despite being the youngest and least experienced member of the team, is really, really good at dodgeball.
“DODGE CITY is inspired by my years of playing dodgeball, along with the uncertainties of growing up,” said Trujillo. “Dodgeball, like being a teenager, is incredibly chaotic—the only way you can ‘win’ is by finding a community and working together.”
The characters in DODGE CITY and its genre drew McGee to the project almost immediately. “The cast is easily one of the most diverse I've seen in a story like this, and is an opportunity for me to get out of my own comfort zone with my art and character designs, which I'm very excited about,” said McGee. “Josh just has such a great way with making interesting characters dealing with realistic struggles, which I think is amazing. And as a big fan of sports anime and manga I'm super pumped to draw something in that genre.”
DODGE CITY is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ critically acclaimed BOOM! Box imprint, home to popular original series such as Lumberjanes
by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooke A. Allen, and Noelle Stevenson; Giant Days
by John Allison, Lissa Treiman, and Max Sarin; The Backstagers
by James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh; SLAM!
by Pamela Ribon and Veronica Fish; and Goldie Vance
by Hope Larson and Brittney Williams.
"Josh and Cara are two creators whose work I have admired deeply for a long time, and it's such a pleasure to see them taking on the joyful intensity of competitive dodgeball and teenage FEELINGS together,” said Shannon Watters, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “I could not be more excited for you to read DODGE CITY."
DODGE CITY #1 will feature a main cover by Cara McGee and a variant cover by Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
). Print copies will be available for sale March 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

'ARROW': MIDSEASON PROMO RELEASED12/08/17 @ 2:20 pm EST
BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce LUCY DREAMING, a new limited series debuting March 2018 from Say Anything frontman Max Bemis (Moon Knight, Polarity
) and GLAAD Award-winning artist Michael Dialynas (The Woods, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
) about a young girl who goes to sleep every night and becomes the hero of all of her favorite stories, living out grand adventures and learning more about the reality she lives in than she could ever learn in her waking life.
“I wanted to create a comic book I could give to my daughter when she’s old enough to read,” said Bemis. “Plus, as a kid, I remember enjoying Star Wars
, The Goonies
, and Indiana Jones
—things that were larger-than-life adventures. I wanted to do something like that.”
Lucy is a grumpy, emotive, full-of-life, 13-year-old girl who keeps waking up in the shoes of various archetypal female heroes. One night she’ll wake up as a space princess turned rebel leader, another night she’ll be a reluctant heroine who becomes the symbolic motivation for an entire country to revolt. But as fantastic as these “dreams” are, they carry the same life-and-death stakes as if Lucy was awake in real life. The reason why all this is happening to her, though, is a secret for now.
“I don’t want to spoil why it happens,” Bemis said. “But I will say it’s a confusing time for Lucy. She’s on the cusp of young adulthood and doesn’t feel like she fits in. She looks down on the hypocrisy she sees surrounding her so she’s escaped into the world of fiction.”
BOOM! Studios published Bemis’ first original comics work, Polarity
, in 2013, followed by Evil Empire
and Oh, Killstrike
. With artist Michael Dialynas, the publisher recently published the conclusion to his award-winning, long-running series, The Woods
, with writer James Tynion IV.
“After drawing a four-year long YA series on a murderous planet in a galaxy far far away, LUCY DREAMING seemed like a perfect opportunity to stretch my muscles on a fun story involving multiple universes and different genres,” said Dialynas. “The fact that I'll get to play around with a new style AND build up a few new worlds is very exciting for me!”
LUCY DREAMING #1 will have a cover illustrated by interior artist Michael Dialynas. Print copies will be available for sale March 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.
"Over the past few years, Max has proven himself to be one of the most exciting new voices in comics, with the writing chops to back it up," said Eric Harburn, Editor, BOOM! Studios. "Brought to life by Mike's immense, emotive talents, LUCY DREAMING is fun, dark, aspirational, and thought-provoking."
LUCY DREAMING is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
, Big Trouble in Little China
,Victor LaValle’s Destroyer
, Mech Cadet Yu
, Grass Kings
, and Klaus
