Fanbase Press Welcomes THE GAMMA GALS to Its 2017 Publishing Lineup
Fanbase Press is excited to announce the newest addition to its publishing slate with The Gamma Gals, a creator-owned, 4-issue digital comic book series that features three D&D-loving teenage girls who awaken from a gamma-irradiated storm to discover they have extraordinary superpowers. Created, written, and illustrated by newcomer Stefano Terry, The Gamma Gals features a diverse cast of characters that aims to show all readers that everyone can be a superhero.
In The Gamma Gals, Kira, Harriet, and Sue are your average high school students at Brightstone City High School by day, but by night, they are The Gamma Gals, protecting Brightstone City from countless super villains, monsters, and more!“I'm excited for The Gamma Gals, because, for me, it's a culmination of 23 years of passion for the comics medium,” says The Gamma Gals creator/writer/artist Terry. “I wanted to create a book that felt more like the real world in terms of representation, with characters that I hope are relatable, fun, and awesome!”
Issues #1-4 of the comic book series will be released digitally through ComiXology starting in March 2017. In addition, the series will be collected into a printed trade paperback featuring two bonus issues that will be released in late summer 2017. “I am overjoyed to bring The Gamma Gals into our publishing lineup this year,” says Fanbase Press Editor-in- Chief Barbra Dillon. “Having the opportunity to add complex and strong female characters to the comic book medium who positively represent various races, physical abilities, and sexual orientations is tantamount to the mission of Fanbase Press and the needs of the comic book industry.”
The Gamma Gals trade paperback is currently available for pre-order through the Fanbase Press website (www.fanbasepress.com). Pre-orders made by June 7, 2017, will receive an exclusive Gamma Gal print signed by Terry.
