Wow! It’s been a long time since this project was first announced, but it looks like 50 Girls 50 will be released by Image in June! I was pretty interested when Cho and Murray first outlined the concept, but now that they have Elephantmen‘s Alex Medellin on-board, I cannot wait to see this! Find out more below:


Frank Cho and Doug Murray Launch Sci-Fi Epic 50 Girls 50 in June

BERKELEY, CA — 5 April 2021 — Two years ago, LIBERTY MEADOWS creator Frank Cho and The ‘Nam and Jungle Girl writer Doug Murray went in search of an artist to illustrate their all-new 50 GIRLS 50. Today, they’re putting the final touches on a four-issue miniseries drawn by 50 GIRLS 50 contest winner and new ELEPHANTMEN artist Axel Medellin.

Working from a script written by Murray, based off a story conceived by Cho and Murray, Medellin has completed the entire four-issue miniseries, now in the process of being colored by SAVAGE DRAGON and INVINCIBLE colorist Nikos Koutsis. In addition to providing character and world designs, Cho is also illustrating covers for each issue.

“It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally in the homestretch with this project,” said Cho. “We all know how disappointing it is when something planned as a 1-2-3-4 miniseries doesn’t ship monthly, so we wanted to make sure the entire miniseries was complete before offering it for sale. This baby’s 100% done, though, and you’ll be getting an issue a month from June to September, whether you like it or not.”

“We’re really pleased that Frank and Doug banked these issues so they could ship uninterrupted over this summer,” added Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “And everyone who’s seen Axel’s work on ELEPHANTMEN: MAN AND ELEPHANTMAN #1 knows what a great find he is, so it’s going to be like getting a double-dose of artwork over the course of this year.”

A sexy sci-fi romp set in a far-flung future, 50 GIRLS 50 chronicles the fantastic voyage of the Space Vessel ESS Savannah and her beautiful crew as they fight to escape hostile aliens and exotic worlds, searching for the wormhole that will take them to their ultimate destination: Home.

50 GIRLS 50 (APR110392), a 32-page full color comic book priced at $2.99 is available for order in the April issue of Diamond Previews and goes on sale June 1.
