Thought You Knew in a New Series in July 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (June 17, 2021) – BOOM! Studios announced today that SAVE YOURSELF! #1, the first issue in a truly magical new four-issue original series from the team behind Pandora’s Legacy, writer Bones Leopard (Identical), artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews (Just Beyond), and letterer Jim Campbell, that’s perfect for fans who grew up loving magical girls and are ready to step up and save the world, no matter who they have to face, has sold out at the distributor level the week of release!
In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced SAVE YOURSELF! #1 SECOND PRINTING, featuring brand new cover art by series artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews and available in stores July 14, 2021.
What if Magical Girls aren’t Earth’s champions after all? The world’s most beloved heroes Aoe, Thel, and Gen, better known as the Lovely Trio, first burst onto the scene five years ago when they saved Earth from a surprise space monster attack! Since then, everyone–including Gigi, whose brother died as a bystander in a Lovely Trio battle– has idolized them as superheroic pop icons. But when Gigi witnesses the Lovely Trio battling a monster firsthand, she sees something that causes her to question everything she thought she ever knew about her heroes!
“The amazing support of SAVE YOURSELF! #1 is making us all feel like superhero pop icons,” said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios. “Bones, Kelly, Nichole, and Jim have turned the idea of Magical Girls upside-down in SAVE YOURSELF! and we can’t wait to share it with even more readers!”
