Stephane Metayer has teamed up with Dark Horse Books to bring his popular self-published comic, Tephlon Funk!, to comic shops. With art by David Tako and Nicolas Safe, this coming-of-age story masterfully weaves together inspiration from 90s NYC street culture, anime, and hip-hop.
Since the death of her parents, 14-year-old Inez Jozlyn can’t catch a break. Still, she’s determined to make a better life for herself. After Gabriel, a mysterious classmate helps her out of a tough spot, she finds herself in the middle of a drug conflict. Along with her strange new friend, Inez will work with a young female cop with a strong sense of justice and a sword-wielding bartender to help stop the new drug from spreading throughout New York.
The Tephlon Funk! paperback will be available for $19.99 at comic stores November 16, 2022 and in bookstores November 29, 2022.
