While basketball season will be over by the time the summer rolls around, fans jonesin' for some hoops in July can check out Sam Bosma's Fantasy Sports, the Nobrow Press expanded edition of his self-published comic Fantasy Basketball.
Previously available directly from Bosma on Gumroad, the new edition expands the original award-winning comic into an oversized hardcover. Combining elements of sports manga, video games and old-fashioned tomb raiding, this new version is in full color, which makes Bosma's beautiful drawings pop.
Check out a preview, as well as additional information on the book, below.
Fantasy Sports, by Sam BosmaJuly 2015, 56 pages, hardcover, full color, $19.95, 9" X 11.75”
An oversized graphic novel expanding the Ignatz-award winning Fantasy Basketball to feature length and full color, Fantasy Sports tells the story of a young explorer and her musclebound friend on their trip treasure hunting in a mummy’s tomb. Brooklyn’s own Sam Bosma blends the flavor of 1960s sports manga with the boldness of a Mike Mignola line, and the hilarity begins when their bandaged adversary demands a game of hoops! With riches in the wings (and eternal entombment as possible consequence), it all comes down to one intrepid young woman and her slam dunk skills in this YA adventure.
