James Tynion IV’s new BOOM! series THE BACKSTAGERS Comes Out!

Backstagers 01 cov

The friendly people from BOOM! Studios have shared with FlipGeeks a preview of the first issue of The Backstagers by James Tynion IV and Rian Sygh.

James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal, The Woods) teams up with artist Rian Sygh (Munchkin, Stolen Forest) for an incredible yet earnest story about finding a place to fit in when you’re kinda an outcast.

When Jory transfers to the private, all-boys school St. Genesius, he figures joining the stage crew would involve a lot of just fetching props and getting splinters. To his pleasant surprise, he discovers there’s a door backstage that leads to different worlds, and all of the stagehands know about it!

All the world’s a stage…but what happens behind the curtain is pure magic!
