Fan-favorite cartoonist Sina Grace (Getting It Together) returns to writing and drawing for the first time in five years in the forthcoming Rockstar and Softboy. This one-shot story will be published by Image Comics and hit shelves in February 2022.
Rockstar and Softboy is a frenzied story following two best friends and their antics in Hollyweird, CA. Rockstar plans the greatest house party ever as a means of lifting roommate Softboy’s spirits, but things take a gnarly turn when the dreaded PARTY ANIMAL shows up to make a mess of things… and dredge up long held secrets between two BFFs who seemingly share everything!
Spawned from a bond strengthened between Grace and comic writer Josh Trujillo during a DC Comics pitch competition, the book promises a refreshing take on the buddy concept, and a few fantastic surprises along the way.
“As a fan of buddy movies like Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, it only just occurred to me that I can create a story of my very own where two gay besties throw a party that includes werewolves, vampires, zombies, witches, and the reviled Party Animal,” said Grace. “Rockstar and Softboy is pure, frenzied, loving, ratchet friendship in a comic book.”
Rockstar and Softboy one-shot will be available on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 in comic book shops and in bookstores on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. Rockstar and Softboy will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
