This new original graphic novel, picking up after issue eight and available in stores September 2020, reunites the acclaimed team of filmmaker and writer Carly Usdin (Heavy Vinyl) and artist Noah Hayes (Wet Hot American Summer), with colorist Eleonora Bruni and letterer Ed Dukeshire, for a brand-new adventure with their team of unlikely athletes brought together by friendship and sports shenanigans.
