Carly Usdin is the creator and writer of two comic book series published by BOOM! Studios:


New Jersey, 1998. Chris has just started the teen dream job: working at Vinyl Mayhem, the local record store. She's prepared to deal with anything—misogynistic metalheads, grunge wannabes, even a crush on her wicked cute co-worker, Maggie. But when Rosie Riot, the staff's favorite singer, mysteriously vanishes the night before her band's show in town, Chris finds out her co-workers are doing more than just sorting vinyl... her local indie record store is also a front for a teen girl vigilante fight club!

the avant-guards

The Avant-Guards introduces readers to the Georgia O’Keeffe College of Arts and Subtle Dramatics, an historically all-female school more enthusiastic about the performing arts than sports programs. Protagonist Liv, budding actor and basketball player, doesn’t want to choose between theater and sports—and neither does new transfer student Charlie. Charlie was a star basketball player at her former school, and it quickly becomes Liv’s goal to recruit the new kid to Georgia O’Keefe’s ragtag basketball team.
