Lettered by: Zakk Saam

KIM & KIM is a day-glo action adventure that’s bursting with energy and enthusiasm and puts queer women and trans women front and center.

Badass besties Kim and Kim are out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement – and they very quickly end up in way over their heads.

Blending the punk exuberance of TANK GIRL with the buddy adventure wackiness of SUPERBAD (if Michael Cera was a trans woman and Jonah Hill a queergirl partner in crime), Kim & Kim focuses on the power and meaning of female friendships as engines of validation. A bright, happy, punk rock sci fi adventure that is queer as shit.

In Stores: July 6th

“A technicolor carousel of guitars, guns, cephalopods and a pair of interstellar guttersnipes just trying to get by.  Cabrera, Aguirre & Visaggio have created a madcap world huge enough to contain interdimensional-traveling shapeshifters but small enough to get wrapped up in the bounty-hunting as indie rock travails of the Kims in question. KIM & KIM is a beautiful, foulmouthed book.”
Christopher Sebela (Heartthrob, We(l)come Back, Dead Letters, High Crimes)

“Rad chicks, hot dudes, and crazy space adventure. And it’s FUNNY. This is why comics exist.”
Alex De Campi (No Mercy)

“I read KIM & KIM from @blackmaskstudio twice now. It isn’t a trans book or a queer book. It’s just a damn good book with that in the plot.”
Greg Gage, Black Cat Comics (Salt Lake City, Utah)

“KIM & KIM #1 from Black Mask is insane! So much crazy fun in this book. The fact that it’s socially relevant is a bonus! Loved this book! It’s like Tank Girl meets Firefly meets 5th Element. Highly recommend you pick it up this summer!”
Richard Davis, Nerdvana Comics (Wilmington, North Carolina)

“KIM & KIM is everything I want in a comic: bleeding with style, grabbing your shirt collar, and dragging you into a kick-ass world with the promise of one hell of a ride. KIM & KIM is a book that TANK GIRL herself would approve.”
Ryan Ferrier (Curb Stomp, D4VE, Kennel Block Blues)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
