BOOM! Studios release a graphic novel of some kids doing acting and all the drama in The Backstagers in the second volume.

 

Well, I know for one thing, that I’m not really a fan of drama sequence between TV shows, comics, and movies, but the Backstagers comic almost brings you to an everyday college life for students. However, this comic almost brings you a little bit of sci-fi and fantasy based genre, and what I’ve seen is all but deja vu, so anyway let’s get down to it.

 

So the story is almost like some high school musical bullshit, but this time it’s about some high school kids who happened to be on the stage but then there’s a backstage that would take the main characters to a different world of time and space. However, this comic is unabashedly queer and it’s filled with some weird people on this comic, furthermore this comic is all for ages for weirdos and outcasts. Their only goal for their semester is to put on the best show that anyone in town ever witnessed. This comic has a lot of silly jokes and their adventures in the backstage almost surprises them. The drama group members just entered on a strange world of time and space while someone is screaming for help. Well, everything is becoming so weird whether that this is a dream or an illusion.

Everything is so weird when I read this comic because no matter what you’re expecting to read this comic, there is almost every bizarre happening on this comic. It almost feels my life is in danger, or far out of my college years back then. But to have a drama comic of The Backstagers was dope, the backstage has a dressing room, an illusion, but almost everything became so weird whenever they investigate the backstage. The art is more like one of the Scott Pilgrim comics, but it would seem that the composition is really clever, because all the characters, background and the plot would prove that the story would make much more sense because some of the high school kids were trying to make a show to impress people in town. But what I’ve seen, everything is so weird from the beginning to the end because there is a ghost in the backstage haunting them all. I’m not really a fan of drama, but whatever is the case is that this comic is weird and funny as hell. Oh, if you think you’d seen the worst of it, brace yourself because The Backstagers added a Valentine’s day special on the next review. So look forward to it.
