For the third year in a row, we’ve assembled a collection of short comics that embody the BOOM! Box aesthetic, an eclectic mix of weird tales from off the beaten track. This year, we’re really leaning into the “mix tape” element by exploring music through sequential storytelling. These can be comics about being in a band, a story about the first time you went to a certain venue, or even a puzzle quest revolving around a music festival. BOOM! Box 2016 Mix Tape embraces graphic storytelling in a way that embodies Tunes That Make You Think in Pictures…

Punk isn’t dead…but Coady is. Coady, Criss, and Corey are sisters and bandmates in the band Coady and the Creepies. After a van accident leaves Corey badly scarred and Criss in a wheelchair, they’re getting back into the punk scene. But they still need to contend with the challenges of staying true to their punk ideals, while also dealing with the media attention they’ve attracted, as well as the tension surrounding the fact that Coady escaped the accident seemingly unscathed. Now on tour, they’re fighting their way through the (sometimes literal) battle of the bands, earning enamel pins, and heading for the gig of their lives…so long as no one realizes that Coady is actually a ghost
