Punk isn't dead...but Coady is.
Coady, Criss, and Corey are sisters and bandmates in the band Coady and the Creepies. After a van accident leaves Corey badly scarred and Criss in a wheelchair, they're getting back into the punk scene.
But they still need to contend with the challenges of staying true to their punk ideals, while also dealing with the media attention they've attracted, as well as the tension surrounding the fact that Coady escaped the accident seemingly unscathed.
Now on tour, they're fighting their way through the (sometimes literal) battle of the bands, earning enamel pins, and heading for the gig of their lives.. more

    Coady and the Creepies #1 is a fun read and a miniseries worth following for its four-issue run. Read Full Review

    I keep going back to the word fun in this review. And that's what I thought this book was. It was just fun. I like fun things. I like having fun. And even if this isn't something I'd normally read, who gives a shit? I enjoyed this book and have a feeling I will continue to do so in the next few issues. Read Full Review

    Theres definitely potential for a great experience, but for now "Coady and the Creepies" lacks a special touch and a clear direction. Read Full Review

    I'm in love with this book. Amanda Kirk's artwork is phenomenal and it fits the book perfectly. It's cute and quirky – and the colorist really brings it all together with her blend of bright, vibrant colors.  The story is great and I love the all-female punk rock band at the center of all of it. Even more so, I love that they are all sisters. I can see some very heartbreaking, sisterly moments in the future – especially when Corey and Criss discover Coady's big secret. It's an awesome all-ages book that everyone who loves bright, fun, and possibly spooky books should check out! Read Full Review

    If you've read any of my past reviews, I am all in for comic books about cool bands, queer romances, and a bit of urban fantasy. Unfortunately,Coady and the Creepies#1 fails to execute its super rad premise, especially in the artwork department and is a rare misfire for the BOOM! Box imprint. Read Full Review
