Read SLAM! Vol. 1 Online Free - In the fast-paced, hard-hitting, super cheeky, all-female world of banked track roller derby, two young women will have to decide if their budding friendship is stronger than the pull of a team when a win is on the line.
When life starts coming at you like a freight train, you have two options: run away screaming or lean into the hit.
From the first day of Fresh Meat Orientation for the Eastside Roller Girls, Jennifer and Maisie knew they’d be fast friends. But when they’re drafted to different teams, the pull of competition — and their increasingly messy personal lives — threaten to drive them apart. In roller derby you take your hits, get back up, and learn how to be a better jammer, a better blocker, a better lover, and a better friend. Derby can heal your heart . . . but it might break a bone or two in the process.
Bestselling novelist, screenwriter, and retired Los Angeles Derby Doll Pamela Ribon (Going In Circles, Why Girls Are Weird) joins artist Veronica Fish (Archie, Silk) for a tale of friendship, heartbreak, and truly epic jams.

Honestly, between Giant Days and Lumberjanes and this, Boom Box is becoming a must read publisher for me.
I adored this graphic. I loved the art and the realistic story. I found it went a bit too fast for me, almost like they didn't flesh out the stories enough, but I still THOROUGHLY enjoyed it....

Really enjoyed this! Solid story and great art by Veronica. Have been such a huge fan of her work on the Archie, Silk, and Spider-Woman series so have been looking forward to this one for ages. Definitely delivered! Highly recommend for fans of Roller Girl, Whip It, and Netflix's Glow.

“Why do you always talk to me like we're in an action movie? What exactly did I do to you?” “I don't hate you, knockout. I'm using you.” “See? Like that.”

There's a part of me that still very much wants to try out for rollar derby. This is even in spite of the bruising these girls have and the knowledge that I'd probably shatter like glass. Great story about the sport but also the friendships that are forged and tested too.

They try to balance work, school and personal lives as well as training for derby. I really liked the character designs and development. Once again, Boom Studios has a great s...

The story is pretty light but still enjoyable. Two friends join roller derby teams and find both themselves and their friendship changing. The art is gorgeous and worth the purchase alone. This isn't the first I've seen Veronica Fish but I am now offically a fan.
