“BOOM! is based in Los Angeles, so HIT is a personal look into the complicated history of our city,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.“Vanesa was such an amazing find. She’s incredibly talented and she garnered a lot of attention for her work, and deservedly so. We just had to strip HIT’s art down to the bare inks and show off her craft in-depth. She and Bryce have included some fascinating commentary that’s going to be a real treat for all you process-piece fans out there.”
