Jonesy Asks for Your Love


In February BOOM! Studios wants to share love of their own. A love with Jonesy, the new limited series from Sam Humphries and Caitlin Rose Boyle. The work is poised for fans of Giant Days, Scott Pilgrim and Archie. The comedy features a teen cupid in plaid who misuses her “love powers” as she tries to find her place in high school.

“Jonesy is one of those comics that just brings a smile to your face,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Sam and Caitlin have created a fresh, relatable group of characters that fit right into the BOOM! Box family alongside Lumberjanes and Giant Days, which means we can promise hilarious shenanigans, a great story, and beautiful art!”

Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows: she has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone, with anything. She’s a cupid in plaid. There’s only one catch—it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong.

“Jonesy, like Giant Days, is the kind of series that would have kept me, as a teen, running back to the comic shop every month,” said Editor Shannon Watters. “I’m so pleased that BOOM! Box is able to bring it to all of you.”

Jonesy #1 (of 4) arrives in comic shops on February 10th with a main cover by Boyle for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code DEC151095. Announced earlier today, a second “Final Order Cutoff” variant cover by Bryan Lee O’Malley and Jason Fischer is now available the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code DEC158102. Also available in a limited quality is a retailer incentive cover by Lissa Treiman. The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is January 18th. Full press release below.
