Comic Strip Fiction / Graphic Novels

A fast-paced sports adventure graphic novel in the vein of 1960’s manga, Mike Mignola, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, Fantasy Sports is poised to be Nobrow’s first breakout adventure comic for the indie and YA scene.

In Sam Bosma’s debut graphic novel, a young explorer and her musclebound friend go treasure hunting in a mummy’s tomb—but if they want to get rich, they’re going to have to best the mummy in a game of hoops! Can they trust their bandaged adversary to play by the rules? Or will they be stuck in the tomb… forever?


Sam Bosma was born in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. After graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art, he taught in the Illustration department from 2011 to 2013 before moving to Brooklyn, NY.

He currently does background drawings for Steven Universe on Cartoon Network when not making comics and graphic novels of his own. He lives in Brooklyn, NY, USA.


A bright, stylish, engaging graphic novel […] a winner for pretty much any child.


An astute and agile heroine who gives readers a new, strong female character in the comics world.

A great choice where graphic novels are popular, especially quirky ones that blur the lines between genres.

Offers excitement from the first page and plenty of vigor.

The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

The inspired offspring of Spirited Away and Space Jam, capturing magical intrigue, fast-paced basketball action, and the best kind of on-the-court trash talk in one go.
