Lettered by: Zakk Saam
Covers by: Tess Fowler, Devaki Neogi, Eva Cabrera
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.

“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]
