Post-Apocalyptic Mayhem Continues from Screenwriter & Breakout DC Star Josie Campbell

BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at  I HEART SKULL-CRUSHER! #2, the next issue of the post-apocalyptic YA sports action series by Josie Campbell, the breakout, hit writer of DC’s Amazons Attack event and screenwriter/producer on My Adventures With Superman, along with rising star artist Alessio Zonno (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), colorist Angel De Santiago, and letterer Jim Campbell.

Trini and the Twins are well on their way to assembling a full team for Screaming Pain Ball! But after a mutant attack on their way to the qualifying match, things aren’t as simple as they’d hoped.
