It’s a great time to be a Carly Usdin stan: In addition to her short film, Misdirection — which is hitting the festival circuit hard this summer; and which was so beloved at A-Camp, the audience asked for it to be screened a second time — BOOM! Studios announced today that she’s teaming back up with artist Nina Vakueva for a new Heavy Vinyl original graphic novel! Yes, your favorite music store gal pals/secret fight club are returning! Would you like an exclusive peek at the cover? Well, of course you would.
“Getting the chance to continue the Heavy Vinyl story is a dream come true! I’m thrilled to be reunited with my precious little ‘90s babies. The story picks up a few months later — It’s 1999, digital music and file sharing have upset the status quo, and Y2K approaches!!” Carly Usdin said. “You can expect the same level of exhaustively-researched pop culture references with new characters, a new mystery, and more Chris/Maggie cuteness. I’ve been having a great time writing it, and I can’t wait for fans to read it.”
