I HEART SKULL-CRUSHER! becomes an ongoing series with a brand new story arc this Fall.

The press release follows:

Media Release -- BOOM! Studios is proud to begin the ROAD TO SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON with the exciting news of the continuation of the fan-favorite post-apocalyptic YA sports series I HEART SKULL-CRUSHER!

Starting in October 2024, 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 will begin the second story arc of Trini's Screaming Pain Ball mayhem with issue #6!

Victory came with a heavy price, as Trini and her team won't have the future together they'd dreamed of! What will friends who consider each other family do when they have to face… each other?! Murdering them is certainly off the table, and it will take everything Trini has in her to avoid the unthinkable, and survive her own new team from hell!

"Josie Campbell and Alessio Zonno have even more action-packed, hilarious hijinks in store for us," said BOOM! Studios Editor, Elizabeth Brei. "The new arc is funny, chaotic, and shockingly touching, just as you'd expect from Trini and the rest of her Screaming Pain Ball teammates! We're so excited for readers to discover the surprises still to come!"
