Gabby Rivera is the critically acclaimed author of the award-winning YA novel, JULIET TAKES A BREATH. Now she’s bursting onto the comics scene at the helm of America Chavez’s long-awaited solo series.

America has always been incontestably awesome, and as the newly appointed leader of the Ultimates, she’s now officially claimed her place as the preeminent butt-kicker of the Marvel Universe! But while leading a team of heroes and punching out big bads is great and all, it doesn’t really leave much time for self-discovery… So what’s a super-powered teenager do when she’s looking for a little fulfillment? She goes to college! She just has to stop an interdimensional monster or two first, plus shut down a pesky alien cult that’s begun worshipping her exploits!

Here at Fantastic Comics we LOVE America Chavez and we can’t wait to meet Gabby and talk to her about the book.

Join us for a Q&A at 5:00 PM, followed by a signing at 6:00 PM!
