|“Suburban Glamour” promo strip|
Image Comics has provided CBR News with an advance look at “Surburban Glamour” #1, the new title by writer/artist Jamie McKelvie shipping next week, September 12. We spoke with the “Phonogram” artist in July about his first full-scripting and full-color excursion, when McKelvie said, “I’ve been describing [‘Suburban Glamour’ as Chynna Clugston’s ‘Blue Monday’ meets Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth,’ which is to say it’s about a group of teenagers doing what teenagers do in a small suburban town, until another world starts encroaching on theirs.”
For more on Jamie McKelvie and “Suburban Glamour,” check out our full interview here. When you’re done checking out these preview pages, stop by CBR’s Image Comics forum to discuss “Suburban Glamour” with fellow readers.

Astrid and Dave are teenagers stuck in a dead-end suburban town living uneventful lives – until Astrid gets a visit from her childhood imaginary friends, who tell her something big is about to happen. Are they real or is she crazy? Life is about to get a lot more interesting for the pair – interesting and very, very dangerous. From the co-creator of PHONOGRAM comes this tale of magic, mystery and underage drinking.
