This week on the Capes and Tights Podcast, Justin Soderberg welcomes David M. Booher to discuss his comic book Specs at Boom! Studios.
Booher is a GLAAD-nominated writer who has created comics for Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, IDW Publishing, Vault Comics, and BOOM! Studios. His all-ages fantasy series Canto is now in development as a feature film with Will Smith’s Westbrook Studios. His LGBTQ-led Killer Queens was featured in the New York Times as a must-read in honor of Pride Month. A lawyer by training, he lives in Los Angeles with his husband and the true brains behind their operation—their adopted greyhounds.
In the Specs comic series David M. Booher and artist Chris Shehan (House of Slaughter), what happens when a couple of misfit teens mail-order a pair of X-ray glasses, and realize they’ve received much more than they bargained for?
But all Kenny and Ted want is to not feel like outcasts in their small Ohio town. Their world is turned upside down when the Magic Specs they receive unlock a world of possibilities.
Their wishes start out innocent enough, but when they wish that their bully would disappear…things take a cursed turn, with far darker consequences than they thought possible…
The third issue hits stands on January 11 with the final issue coming in February. Look for the trade paperback in late Summer or early Fall.
