Boom! Studios has announced the October publication of A Sparrow’s Roar, an original graphic novel from artist C.R. Chua and co-writer Paolo Chikiamco about a young knight-in-training who has to assumer her sister’s identity in order to save her kingdom.

Chikiamco explained that he and Chua wanted “to tell a story with a cast of women warriors in a setting where they would be notable for their skill rather than their sex.”

A Sparrow’s Row is the latest release from BOOM! Studios' BOOM Box imprint (see “BOOM! Studios Launches Fourth Imprint”), which is edited by Shannon Watters and focuses on bringing in new creators from outside the comic market.  Among the notable Boom Box releases so far are Lumberjanes by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn Allen, and Noelle Stevenson, Giant Days by John Allison, Lisa Treiman, and Max Sarin, and Misfit City by Kiwi Smith, Kurt Lustgarten, and Naomi Franquiz.
