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.

This was such a cute comic! I've heard of roller derby but this definitely gave me a better and more in-depth explanation of the game. We follow two main characters who go from being rookies to a part of a team. It was amazing to see their growth and development as players and as individuals. Thr...

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.
