Gabby Rivera is a Bronx-born, queer Puerto Rican author. She’s the first Latina to write for Marvel Comics, penning the solo series America about America Chavez, a portal-punching queer Latina powerhouse. Her debut novel is Juliet Takes a Breath and she is the writer and creator of b.b. free, a new original comic series with BOOM! Studios.
In b.b.free (BOOM! Box) it’s been over twenty years since the Plague That Ate Greed wiped out half the population, and it’s the only world that our hero, b.b. free has ever known. Broadcasting her underground radio show from her remote swamp community, b.b. has no idea about the world outside her home – or her role in it. She’s the chosen one. But when b.b. discovers a terrible secret about her overbearing father, she realizes that everything she believes in could be a lie. Now on the run from her own family, b.b. will learn the truth about the world she lives in, and about the power she never knew she had.
