Boumeries: Volume 1

Boumeries: Volume 1, by Boum, 90 pp.

This collection of four-panel comic strips by Montreal filmmaker, animator and illustrator Samantha Leriche-Gionet, a.k.a. Boum, was first published in journal form online. Often following self-imposed challenges ("Hourly Comic Day," "Daily Comic Week," etc.), the strips have a nicely spontaneous, quirkily personal quality, depicting amusing little slices of life with her boyfriend, offbeat dreams and silly mishaps (often involving toilets), observations about unreliable iPhone apps and retro video games, trips to Toronto and France… Boum’s lively drawing style and witty writing leave us wanting more, which we thankfully can get over at her website (!
