Curb Stomp #1

Three gangs. Five girls. No way out. Machete Betty leads a small gang of women under the self-appointed task of protecting their home of Old Beach, one of three boroughs surrounding a rich metropolitan city. When Betty takes the life of a rival gang member in an act of self-defense, she sets off a chain reaction of retaliation, gang warfare, and unlikely allies. It’s up to the The Fever-Machete Betty, Derby Girl, Bloody Mary, Daisy Chain, and Violet Volt-to defend their turf at all costs.

Boom! Studios preview: CURB STOMP! #1

Story by Ryan Ferrier // Art by Devaki Neogi / Cover by Tula Lotay

WHY WE LOVE IT: Punk rock isn’t dead…yet. Turf wars, breaking rules, crushing violence, and Black Flag—these are a few of our favorite things, and we can’t wait for Curb Stomp to straight-up knock our teeth out (in a good way).

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Writer Ryan Ferrier (D4VE) is a creator on the rise, and newcomer Devaki Neogi’s art will hook you with its aggressiveness but keep you coming back with its heart. Curb Stomp is an unflinching, visceral look at the lengths one woman will go to protect her friends, her family, and her home—perfect for fans of Rat Queens and the seminal ‘70s cult-favorite film The Warriors.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Three gangs. Five girls. No way out. Machete Betty leads a small gang of women under the self-appointed task of protecting their home of Old Beach, one of  three boroughs  surrounding  a  rich   metropolitan  city. When Betty takes the life of a rival gang member in an act of self-defense, she sets off a chain reaction of retaliation, gang warfare, and unlikely allies. It’s up to the The Fever—Machete Betty, Derby Girl, Bloody Mary, Daisy Chain, and Violet Volt—to defend their turf at all costs.

Curb Stomp #1 REVIEW: 8/10! Gritty, street-level battle against misogyny

http://www.newsarama.com/23653-best-shots-reviews-batman-arkham-knight-1-thor-annual-1-curb-stomp-1-uncanny-avengers-2-more.html:

Curb Stomp #1 (Published by BOOM! Studios; Review by Draven Katayama; ‘Rama Rating: 8 out of 10): Ryan Ferrier introduces us to the Fever: a group of five vigilante women who protect their borough from two neighboring boroughs’ gangs. Ferrier highlights real-life issues of sexism: a male gang member calls one of the Fever a misogynistic epithet, sparking major repercussions. Devaki Neogi’s panels flow smoothly with a '70s noir aesthetic that evokes Pulp Fiction and Ming Doyle’s The Kitchen. Neil Lalonde’s pop art-inspired colors are reminiscent of Taki Soma’s high contrast style, but with a Jordie Bellaire-like intuition for interplay between background and foreground that looks fitting, not jarring. Ferrier, Neogi, Lalonde, and letterer Colin Bell capture the powerlessness people feel when subjected to perpetual injustice. This is timely social commentary, smart storytelling, and a solid cast of lead characters.

Issue #1 – Curb Stomp (2015)

Title: Curb Stomp #1

Writer: Ryan Ferrier

Artist: Devaki Neogi

The Buzz: Ferrier describes it as a timeless street gang story – not quite now, not quite 1980′s, but definitely punk rock. The book was launched by Boom! Studios as part of their general strategy to put more books out there for female audiences – along with Lumberjanes, Bee and Puppycat, and Butterfly.

All You Need To Know: Punk rock girl gangs, diverse cast of characters, brutal suburban violence, and a roller-derby style community of women protecting their own turf.

Story: Machete Betty leads The Fever, an all-female gang (her fellow warriors are called Derby Girl, Bloody Mary, Daisy Chain & Violet Volt) who protect Old Beach, a down and out borough near a wealthy city – when they’re not drinking shots, caring for their families and singing in a rock band. Betty kills a rival gang member in self defence, and the Wrath come demanding a Fever life in return.

Reviewed By Katy Rex. “Curb Stomp” #1 has so much going for it, it’s easy to trust that many of the unresolved or unclear points will be addressed later in the series.
