US publisher BOOM! Studios has revealed a brand new look at Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O!, an original graphic novel, available in stores later this month.
The book reunites the acclaimed team of filmmaker and writer Carly Usdin (The Avant-Guards), artist Nina Vakueva (League of Legends: Ashe – Warmother), inker Irene Flores, colourist Natalia Nesterenko and letterer Jim Campbell for a brand-new adventure with the music store crew – and secret fight club – of Heavy Vinyl.
In Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O!, your favorite girl gang is back and on the brink of a new millennium. It’s the summer of 1999, and while the staff of Vinyl Destination is dealing with growing up and getting out into the world, the tension over Y2K is mounting into an all-out panic!
Can this group of music-loving vigilantes balance their work lives with their dating lives, prevent the total collapse of modern society, and save the world in time to celebrate the new millenium?!
There’s only one way to find out!
