BOOM! Studios Announces Queer Paranormal Series ‘Specter Inspectors’ For February 2021
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios announced Specter Inspectors, a new original five-issue series from comics creators Bowen McCurdy and rising star Kaitlyn Musto. Specter Inspectors follows a group of social media savvy ghost hunters who seek out supernatural hot spots in order to answer the ultimate question. . . are ghosts even real?!
‘True believer Noa, her cynical little sibling Gus, credulous camera man Ko, and Noa’s skeptical best friend (and secret crush) Astrid head to one of the most haunted towns in America to prove that ghosts exist, for all the social media likes! The investigations of hauntings uncover something more devilish than just a couple of ghosts, something that will put Noa and Astrid’s relationship to the test… and reveal the centuries-old sinister secrets of the town itself.’
McCurdy explains what the series means to her:
This book is everything I wanted to read when I was young; queer characters on adventures, ghosts, romance, and only a handful of demons. The story is based on one of the first comics I ever did, so it has a big place in my heart.
Print copies of the oversized Specter Inspectors #1 will be available for sale in February 2021. Check out the preview art below.
