School's Back in Session with Gunnerkrigg Court


The latest installment of Thomas Siddell's adventurous fantasy series may just have another number in its title, but that won't stop it from being awesome. In fact, this June's release of Gunnerkrigg Court Vol. 5: Refine hardcover offers even more opportunity for readers to heap praise upon the work. The collection is the latest to follow the adventures of Antimony Carver at the mysterious boarding school, Gunnerkrigg Court.

“Gunnerkrigg Court has been running online for ten years now, and Antimony’s journey has only become more and more exciting,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Thomas has created a fantastic world filled with magic, science, and myth, and Antimony is the perfect character to explore that world. Most impressive of all are the fans from all corners of the globe who have continually supported and cheered on this series, so we’re honored to be collecting Thomas’ work in these beautiful hardcover collections.”

Antimony’s new responsibilities thrust her into the heart of the forest, taking Parley and Smitty along for the ride! Meanwhile, Kat is left to deal with the mysterious letter she received, and Renard takes the time to reflect on his past decisions. As the year reaches a close, some friendships will grow stronger and some will have to come to an end.

The Gunnerkrigg Court Vol. 5: Refine hardcover arrives in comic book shops on June 17th with a cover by series creator Siddell for the price of $26.99 under Diamond Code APR151222. The Final Order Cutoff date for comics retailers is May 25th. Full press release below.
