‘Save Yourself!’ Sells Out, Heads To Second Printing

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios has announced that Save Yourself! #1 has sold out and is headed to a second printing. The new four-issue original series from writer Bones Leopard, artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews, and letterer Jim Campbell, is aimed at fans who grew up loving magical girls and are ready to step up and save the world, no matter who they have to face.

‘What if Magical Girls aren’t Earth’s champions after all? The world’s most beloved heroes Aoe, Thel, and Gen, better known as the Lovely Trio, first burst onto the scene five years ago when they saved Earth from a surprise space monster attack! 

Since then, everyone–including Gigi, whose brother died as a bystander in a Lovely Trio battle– has idolized them as superheroic pop icons. But when Gigi witnesses the Lovely Trio battling a monster firsthand, she sees something that causes her to question everything she thought she ever knew about her heroes!’

The second printing features a brand new cover art by series artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews and hits the spinner racks July 14, 2021.
