Campbell + Zonno gear up for the the post-apocalyptic sports comic ‘I Heart Skull-Crusher’

The first issue from BOOM! Box arrives in March.

Josie Campbell and Alessio Zonno will team for a new series from BOOM! Studios’ BOOM! Box imprint next year.  I Heart Skull-Crusher is about an aspiring player of Screaming Pain Ball, the most popular sport in post-apocalyptic America, and her journey to becoming just like her favorite pro, Skull-Crusher.

“I am BEYOND thrilled to bring I Heart Skull-Crusher to life with the talented Alessio; it’s everything I love–queer characters, anime influences, action, comedy, broken hearts, broken bones, Post-Apocalypse death matches–wrapped up in one gorgeous package. This is the story I’ve been wanting to tell for years!” Campbell said

Here are the details on the story from BOOM!:

18-year-old Trini will do anything to compete in her favorite sport, Screaming Pain Ball, aspiring to the heights of her longtime hero Skull-Crusher! But she can’t do it alone, and a gaggle of misfits is just what she needs to cross the American wastes and battle in Queen Mob’s deadly tournament.

With Trini’s dreams of being just like Skull-Crusher on the line, do she and her friends have what it takes to win a coveted spot on Skull-Crusher’s undefeated team?

I Heart Skull-Crusher has smashed my head and heart since Josie told me about it! I’m loving working with her and bringing these crazy characters to life and their incredible story fills me with energy,” said Zonno. “I’m completely immersed and I can’t stop drawing it!”
