NYCC News: Check Out A Seven-Page Preview Of GROMMETS From Image Comics

At New York Comic Con this afternoon, Image Comics announced a new ongoing series GROMMETS from writer Rick Remender, comedian Brian Posehn, and artist Brett Parson. The book will hit your local comic book shop in April 2024. Check out a seven-page preview below.

About the series:
In Grommets, two outcast best friends navigate the Sacramento suburbs of 1984, where they find a home in skateboard culture and punk rock. Grommets is both an authentic look at ’80s skate culture—a snapshot of the generation that turned skating into a worldwide phenomenon—as well as a heartfelt coming-of-age story following two friends from troubled homes navigating their damage in an era when no one cared.

The series’ title sprints from skater slang, a “grommet” is a commonly used term for a young up-and-coming skater or surfer. Since the ’60s it’s been used to describe the next generation of kids who, with youthful exuberance, love the sport but want to put their spin on it.
