NBA All-Star Rudy Gobert makes comic book debut at Titan Comics with YA graphic novel BASH!
Titan Comics are going BIG for the launch of their new “Titan Nova” young adult imprint with BASH!, a brand new standalone graphic novel from NBA All-Star and Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert and artist Vince Serrano.
Set for release in February 2023, BASH! tells the story of young Rudy, a poor kid from planet Nelilia, who dreams of being a star player of BASH – a brutal, high-octane, intergalactic version of basketball, whose players are rockstars, legends and gods.
Rudy has the heart and talent, but whilst he’s starting to get noticed by the teams and talent scouts, other, more sinister forces have started to creep out from the shadows, jealous of the rising young star. Can Rudy make it to the top, while threats come from every corner of the galaxy?
Speaking about the book, Gobert said “This was surely a crazy feat when we started it. I wanted to tell a story that bolsters dedication and courage, which were so essential to my own personal journey. I hope that it will encourage readers to overcome their challenges and pursue their dreams.”
Titan Comics co-publishers Vivian Cheung and Nick Landau continued, adding “We were so impressed by Rudy and Vince’s infectious passion for the comics medium. With BASH!, readers of all-ages can expect a powerfully told story with incredible artwork that draws on a wide breadth of influence from across mediums.”
The release of BASH! serves as the official launch of Titan Nova (a new imprint from Titan Comics), which will cater to middle grade and young adult readers aged 8 -16 and curious minds of all ages.
BASH! arrives in bookshops, comic shops, and on digital platforms on February 14th 2023, and you can feast your eyes on some preview artwork below.
