Ed Brubaker, Marcos Martin & Muntsa Vicente Surprise Release New Digital Comic ‘Friday’ For NCBD
by Olly MacNamee
A surprise new title has dropped out of nowhere today and appearing on Panel Syndicate is Friday by Ed Brubaker, Marcos Martin (and co-founder of Panel Syndicate along with Brian K Vaughn) and Muntsa Vicente. The first 30 page chapter is up now and you can name your price, as with other titles on their website. One part Harriet the Spy, another part H P Lovecraft and one last part noir fiction (well, this is Brubaker we’re talking about here) you can buy it in either English or Spanish.
In the series, Friday Fitzhugh—girl detective—and Lancelot Jones—her best friend and also the smartest boy in the world—spent their childhoods solving crimes and digging up occult secrets. But that was years ago. And now Friday is in college and starting a new life on her own. She’s moved on. Until she returns home for the holidays and is immediately pulled back into Lance’s orbit. This is literally the Christmas vacation from Hell and neither of them may survive to see the New Year.
Friday, Chapter 1 is out now from Panel Syndicate here and is part of an ongoing series. Here’s the briefest of preview of that first chapter:
