Sina Grace (“Iceman”) has had a busy WonderCon this year with the announcement of two new projects at BOOM! Studios. First, Grace will team with artist Siobhan Keenan (“Jem and the Holograms”) for “Ghosted in LA.” Announced at the BOOM! Studios’ Discover Yours panel, the book follows Daphne Walters, who followed love out west only to end up without a home and nursing a broken heart. She eventually winds up at Rycroft Manor, a place not as empty as it appears: Daphne soon discovers she has some unusual roommates and neighbors, who happen to be lovesick ghosts or those of aspiring actors.
“This project is an absolute dream come true,” says Grace. “I get to mix humor, the macabre, pop culture and provide a fresh perspective on my hometown with one of my favorite comic artists… The ghosts of Rycroft Manor may reside in West L.A., but me? I’m in heaven.” Keenan added, “Drawing Sina’s writing, which has so much humor and heart, is an absolute treat for me. And I’m so excited to be working with BOOM! Studios on a project based in LA, a city I adore!”
Keep an eye out for the book, due out from BOOM! Studios’ young adult BOOM! Box imprint, July 10, 2019. Paste has a look at some of the cover art for issue #1.
Grace will also join writer Ryan Parrott and artist Francesco Mortarino for the ‘Necessary Evil’ event within the “Power Rangers” titles this July. Beginning with “Go Go Power Rangers” issue #21, the trio will delve into the “secret history behind the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.”
Parrott said “Naturally, when I was offered the chance to write [main title] ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,’ I assumed my time exploring the personal lives of the ‘Teenagers with Attitude’ was over. Thankfully… I was wrong. Now, while the current iteration of ‘Go Go Power Rangers’ is about to draw to a close, an exciting new chapter awaits.” Grace said that as a lifelong Power Rangers fan, he was “thrilled to work beside Ryan on one of the most exciting chapters in the Rangers’ history.”
“Go Go Power Rangers” #21 also hits comic stores on July 10, 2019: head on over to Newsarama for more details.
