The award-winning creator of Liberty Meadows, Skybourne, and 50 Girls 50, is making his return to comics in a new miniseries from Artists, Writers & Artisans (A.W.A.) Fight Girls, a non-stop combat comic.
This new series marks the first time since 2018 that Frank Cho has returned to comics. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cho described the title as “Gladiator meets Hunger Games,” Cho with the simple plot: 10 women from different parts of the Empire, gathered to compete in an ancient and deadly competition for the vacant throne of the Queen, but with a wicked twist at the end. Cho continued:
“Fight Girls is one of half-dozen stories I wrote over the years that I never got to do because of my time commitments to Marvel and DC Comics. Now that I’m with AWA, I can finally dust off my stories and work on them. I’ve always been a big action-adventure guy. I’ve always enjoyed stories of reluctant heroes overcoming overwhelming odds through intelligence, strength, and determination. Fight Girls is my love letter to the big sci-fi fantasy action genre.
I hope the readers enjoy the story as much as I did writing it, and will be delightfully surprised by all the twists and turns I have in store for them in Fight Girls.”
AWA chief creative officer Axel Alonso had this to say about the project and Cho in the same interview:
“Frank is a once-in-a-generation talent – and a dual-threat writer and artist. His neo-pulp excursions are unparalleled, and it’s no surprise he is one of the most popular and respected artists in the medium. It’s been my pleasure and privilege to work with him since 2005’s Shanna, the She-Devil [at Marvel], and I think this is his best work ever.
Fight Girls is a neo-pulp sci-fi masterpiece that explores all the themes that obsess Frank.”
The series will launch digitally and in comic book stores in July of 2021.
