Misfit City is a new limited series from the BOOM! Box imprint of BOOM! Studios. This new, female-led title is written by screenwriter and novelist Kiwi Smith, who is responsible for the screenplays for such “girl power” classics as 10 Things I Hate About You and Legally Blonde! Now, she’s entered the comics arena, along with writer Kurt Lustgarten, with this awesome new title, now on its second issue.

Here’s the official series synopsis:

Nothing’s happened in Wilder’s hometown since they filmed that cult kids’ adventure movie there in the 80s … but that’s ancient history. Until one day, she and her friends come upon a centuries-old pirate map drawn by someone named Black Mary … and find out there might be some REAL adventure in their tiny town after all!
