Discover Love, Laughter, And the Afterlife in the City of Angels this July 2019
BOOM! Studios has announced GHOSTED IN LA, a brand new comic book series from GLAAD Media Award-nominated writer Sina Grace (Iceman) and artist Siobhan Keenan (Jem and the Holograms). From this incredible team comes a story about figuring out your love life – and your afterlife – in Hollywood.
Daphne Walters moved to Los Angeles following the love of her life…or so she thought. Rudely awakened from her happily-ever-after, she finds herself suddenly both out of a place to live and without a reason for being thousands of miles from home. In the midst of her heartbreak, she makes her way to Rycroft Manor, a derelict apartment complex that isn’t as abandoned as it seemed. It turns out that the Manor isn’t just packed with mid-century charm . . . it’s also teeming with lovesick ghosts! Daphne might need to crash on this haunted couch for a while, but having supernatural roommates might be more than she bargained for.
“I cannot stress how truly, utterly, unbelievably excited I am for GHOSTED IN LA. Shannon Watters is an editor who I’ve dreamt of world-building with, and Siobhan Keenan was the first person I thought of when considering artists to bring Daphne Walters and her spectral roommates to (un)life,” said Sina Grace, writer. “This project is an absolute dream come true. 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.”
Siobhan Keenan is an illustrator and comic artist living in Los Angeles, CA. Keenan has worked with writers Amber Benson and Sarah Kuhn on BOOM! Studios’ original graphic novels Clueless: Senior Year and Clueless: One Last Summer, based on the worldwide phenomenon and hit film Clueless. She has also illustrated Jem and the Holograms: IDW 20/20 as well as Jem and the Holograms: Dimensions.
“GHOSTED IN LA is a dream to work on, having helped design a full cast of endearing characters!” said artist, Siobhan Keenan. “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!”
“GHOSTED IN LA is a fun and delightful rom-com about the things that haunt us long after they’ve disappeared from our lives, like exes and awkward moments, but also about how we move past them to live our best lives,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Sina and Siobhan really capture the feel of living in Los Angeles where everyone comes to bring their dreams to life, no matter how difficult or impossible they may seem.”
