    Are you in desperate need of 90’s nostalgia? Do you miss the days of power couple Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang Josh and Alicia Silverstone’s Cher in the hit movie Clueless? Well your thirst may be quenched soon, as BOOM! Studios plans to release “Clueless: One Last Summer,” a sequel to “Clueless: Senior Year,” according to a press release. The book will reunite the creative team behind the first series, namely writers Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “The Witches of Echo Park”, “Death’s Daughter”) and Sarah Kuhn (“Heroine Complex”, “Barbie”), and artist Siobhan Keenan (“Adventure Time”). Natacha Bustos (“Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy”) will provide the cover art.

    In CLUELESS: ONE LAST SUMMER, Cher, Dionne and Tai journey out for their final summer vacation before they head off to college and the world of adulthood. However when life threatens to topple their elaborate plans for the summer to remember, they’ll be challenged to stay true to their best selves amidst the chaos. Luckily they’ve got each other to lean on, because that’s what best friends are for… and because no one stops Cher when she makes up her mind!

    Benson said she’s excited to be reunited with the creative team, adding “I feel like when the three of us work together there is a real synergy that makes Cher, Dionne, and Tai’s world come alive. This next installment of the Clueless comic is all about what happens in the summer before the ladies head off to college – and it will be chock full of the good stuff: friendship, romance, and mystery… with a heavy dose of that ’90s Clueless nostalgia that makes the comic so much fun.”

    Sarah Kuhn also expressed her excitement, saying “I am also really loving getting the chance to explore a character who I adore, but hasn’t gotten much of a spotlight yet in the Clueless-verse: Summer, who was played in the movie by the great Nicole Bilderback. Summer’s presence as an amazingly-dressed Asian girl who got to be part of Cher’s cool crowd was always super important to me and I am thrilled to say she has a big part in this book.” Artist Siobhan Keenan also enthusiastically said, “I know I’m going to have a great time drawing Cher, Dionne, and Tai’s summer adventures—and I’m so excited to draw and explore new characters, too! Summer vacation is always a memorable time, so it’ll be a dream to dress up everyone in memorable outfits, too.”

    “Clueless: One More Summer” will be published under BOOM! Studios’ award-winning BOOM! Box imprint, which has launched several popular original series such as “Lumberjanes” by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn Allen, and Noelle Stevenson. BOOM! Studios editor Shannon Watters said “I’m thrilled that we get to reunite the amazing women, both on the page and behind the story, to explore even more stories with Cher, Dionne and Tai at BOOM! Box.”

    “Clueless: One More Summer” will debut sometime in the fall of 2018. As always, for more info head over to Boom! Studoios website.
