It is time we revisit Bayside High School! You might remember that Bayside is the fun high school where we caught up everyday with pals Zack, Slater, Kelly, Lisa, Screech, and Jessie. The gang dominated teen television with “Saved by the Bell” and now Roar Comics has announced they are bringing the iconic series back for a younger generation in the very first Saved By the Bell graphic novel.
Kicking things off at the perfect starting point for newbies, the series is a modern reboot set during the Bayside gang’s freshman year, where they’ve traded in their brick cell phones for Twitter accounts and iPhones. But these inseparable friends still have the same chemistry and camaraderie we remember from the old days. Written by television vet Joelle Sellner (Teen Titans, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes) with expressive artwork by multiple Eisner Award-nominated Chynna Clugston Flores (Blue Monday, Queen Bee) and Tim Fish (The Graphic Canon, Uncanny X-Men: Nation X), Saved By the Bell is a zany yet still grounded coming of age story reminiscent of classic teen humor comics but with a cutting edge.
The Bayside High School crew definitely have some exciting new adventures ahead of them in this new series!
“Saved by the Bell” the graphic novel will release on July 1, 2015.
