GOOD GAME, WELL PLAYED Comic Book Trailer Will Take You Back In Time

Mad Cave Studios' upcoming comic book Good Game, Well Played, written by Rachael Smith and illustrated by Katherine Lobo, will have you reliving the 90s!

Maverick, Mad Cave Studios' young adult imprint, is releasing its second title Good Game, Well Played on April 20th in comic book shops and May 3rd in the book Market. It will also be available for purchase digitally via Mad Cave Studios, Comixology, and Drive-Thru comics.

Mad Cave Studios has released a new trailer to celebrate the upcoming release. You can check it out below, as well as a few of the interior pages!

Good Game, Well Played is written by Rachael Smith, with art and color by Katherine Lobo.

The story takes place in 2009 and follows Sienna as she heads back to her hometown to say goodbye to one of the people she consideres family. In 1999 she had a job working at the local video game store, with her best friends, and it was shaping up to be the perfect summer. They thought it would be that way forever... Until the game shop falls victim to a greedy landlord. It's up to the Sienna and her friends to save the store before it's closed for good!

“I started out writing Good Game, Well Played as a book about a video game store in the 90s...but it became so much more than that," said writer, Rachael Smith. "It's a book about friendship, about not fitting in, about being scared of change, about overcoming adversity, and about making horrendous mistakes. When I finished it I was proud of how real the characters felt...then I saw Katherine's art and my jaw hit the floor. They felt so real I thought they were going to walk out of the panel and start talking to me. Trust me when I tell you, Katherine has made this book something really special.”

“Working on this book has been a very special experience for me," said artist, Katherine Lobo. "I grew a lot as an artist through it, and it made me reflect on my own attitudes. Each character tells us their story in such a natural way that it's difficult not to identify with them. Personally, each kid seems to portray a part of my adolescence. I can't wait for everyone to enjoy this book as much as I did.”

It's 2009, and Sienna is really not looking forward to flying back into her hometown to say goodbye to one of the people she called family. Though that feels like a lifetime ago.

It's 1999, and Sienna is looking forward to what is shaping up to be the Perfect Summer in her Perfect Life. She has a job working in the local video game store, Game Champ, with her four best friends, and that was how it was going to be forever...
