Exclusive Preview: Can The Avant-Guards Keep Their Winning Streak Going In #4?

by Hannah Means Shannon

The Boom! Studios series The Avant-Guards is coming up for a fourth issue on April 24th, and after rave reviews here on Comicon.com we’ve got an exclusive preview for you of the upcoming team-building and impending confrontations.

Issue #4 is the latest chapter in the twelve-issue series from writer Carly Usdin (Heavy Vinyl) and artist Noah Hayes (Wet Hot American Summer) about a ragtag group of friends who band together to build the first ever basketball team at their historic women’s art college.
In issue #4, the Avant-Guards have defeated their first major opponents, and it’s time to celebrate, but that also means it’s a good time for Liv to approach Charlie. Unfortunately, life has a way of getting in the way! Boom teases: “Will Liv and Charlie be able to find some time alone together or will they miss their chance to take things to the next level?”
The Avant-Guards #4 features a main cover by Hayes and a variant cover by Cara McGee (Black Canary: Ignite, Dodge City).
Shannon Watters, Senior Editor at Boom! Studios says:

It’s hard enough getting up the courage to talk to your crush but then dealing with your friends’ drama and complicated feelings about your ex, all at the same time? Liv and Charlie have been dancing around their mutual interest for a while now so how difficult could it be to shoot your shot and go in for a kiss? Turns out, pretty difficult.

The Avant-Guards is the latest release from Boom! Studios’ Boom! Box imprint, home to groundbreaking original series such as Lumberjanes by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn Allen, and Noelle Stevenson; Giant Days by John Allison, Lissa Treiman, and Max Sarin; Smooth Criminals by Kirsten ‘Kiwi’ Smith, Kurt Lustgarten, and Leisha Riddell; Fence by C.S.
