Avatar star Joel David Moore is launching a brand-new comic series with Thunder Comics and Scout Comics called Don’t F With Karen.
CBR can exclusively announce Scout Comics and Thunder Comics’ new project, Don’t F With Karen. Co-written by Moore and producer Mike Capes (The Invisible Raptor, The Hacks Of Life), the horror-comedy series features art by Rui Silveira, colors by Verónica R. López and letters by DC Hopkins. The synopsis reads, “Karen Campbell is a soccer mom who isn’t afraid to wield everyday household objects as a monster-killing weapon. She is a descendant from a secret lineage of women who have been passed down the CURSED AMULET – a shard from a powerful crystal that grants the bearer power over horrible monsters that can only be seen by children.”
“We’re thrilled to bring our new hero Karen to life collaborating with the incredible team at Thunder and Scout Comics,” said Moore and Capes in a joint statement. “Don’t F With Karen is a story about a single mom that begins her hero’s journey late in life to battle children’s biggest fears. We started this project to honor the strong women in our lives that have always protected and guided us…our moms. The true badasses you don’t F with.”
“We couldn’t be more excited about Don’t F With Karen,” added Thunder Comics co-Founder Tim Zajaros. “Joel and Mike are incredibly talented creators, and when they pitched us the idea, we knew we had something special. It’s fun, it’s scary, it’s smart, it’s nostalgic. It’s Ghostbusters meets gremlins with a badass mom leading the charge. We can’t wait to share what they’ve created!”
