Fabian Lelay, co-creator and artist of “Jade Street Protection Services” returns this May to Black Mask Studios with a new rock ‘n’ roll teen drama series. His earlier book “Jade Street” with Katy Rex was very much “Sailor Moon” by way of The Breakfast Club and based on the solicitation posted today, the new title “We Are The Danger,” looks to appeal a similar audience as well as fans of “Jem and the Holograms” and perhaps the DCYou era of “Black Canary.”
Starting as the new girl in your senior year of high school is never easy, and Julie Malliari is having a terrible first day— until she meets Tabitha. After a night out at a rock show, their friendship quickly grows and, before they know it, the two form a band with their sights set on a record deal… they just need to win it in a nationwide Battle of the Bands competition. With Tabitha’s rival keen to take the prize for herself, it’s a battle not to be missed.
Lelay, both writer and artist on his book, is joined by colorist Claudia Aguirre (“Kim & Kim,” “Betty and Veronica Vixens”) and veteran letterer Taylor Esposito for this “exuberant” high-school drama. “We Are The Danger” is expected in May this year, so let your friendly local comic shop know you’re interested by the middle of March to make sure they get copies.
