Your Magical First Look at FLAVOR GIRLS #1
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at FLAVOR GIRLS #1, the premier issue of the new comic book series from highly acclaimed illustrator and cartoonist Loïc Locatelli-Kournwsky (Persephone) and colorist Eros de Santiago, about a young woman suddenly called to join a group of magical heroes whose powers derive from the Earth in order to defend against a great looming danger, available July 2022.
Naoko, Camille, and V are the Dragonfruit, Pomegranate, and Artichoke FLAVOR GIRLS, Sacred Fruit Guardians of Earth! They defend the Mother Tree—the source of their power—from the threat of ever-looming aliens, who landed twelve years ago and whose motives regarding the planet are yet unknown…
Sara’s a young woman studying to become an international peacekeeper until one day she gets caught up in an alien attack. In the midst of battle, she is chosen by the Mother Tree as the newest FLAVOR GIRL with a sacred duty to defend the Earth and all its inhabitants. There’s just one problem… she’s never fought an alien in her life and she has no clue what she’s doing. Can she figure out her powers and her place on the team in time to help save the world?
FLAVOR GIRLS #1 features main cover art by series creator Locatelli-Kournwsky.
