Media Release — This February, BOOM! Box, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, invites you to kick butt and drool over hunky guys with the cutest crusher of evil-doers in Madeleine Flores’ new limited series Help Us! Great Warrior. Possessing great strength and even greater self-confidence, Great Warrior protects her village from evil-doers and looks great in her armor while doing it. Based on Flores’ popular webcomic, Help Us! Great Warrior is the newest series from the BOOM! Box imprint and continues the tradition of jubilant comics made “for the love of it” like Lumberjanes and Teen Dog.
“Madeleine’s Great Warrior is someone we can all admire,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “She takes out the bad guys, eats too many potato chips, and is full of unwavering self-confidence. We fell in love with Madeleine’s hilarious webcomic and just couldn’t wait to bring these new adventures to print!”
If you love the brand of kick-butt girl power that Lumberjanes brings to the page each month, then this sword-wielding girl and her hilarious adventures will be exactly what you need to round out your pull list. Also, there are witches who turn everyone to hunks. What’s not to love?
