About The Book

Starting as the new girl in your senior year of high school is never easy, and Julie Malliari is having a terrible first day--until she meets Tabitha. After a night out at a rock show, their friendship quickly grows and, before they know it, the two form a band with their sights set on a record deal... they just need to win it in a nationwide Battle of the Bands competition.

With Tabitha's rival keen to take the prize for herself, it's a battle not to be missed...

From artist and writer Fabian Lelay (Jade Street Protection Services), colorist Claudia Aguirre (Kim & Kim), and letterer Taylor Esposito comes this exuberant tale of friendship, growing up, and rock n roll. Collects issues 1-5.

"A wild, fun, very honest book. Fabian does a great job of telling these personal stories that feel intimate and yet universal. The kind of book that will stick with some people forever. -Matthew Rosenberg (4 Kids Walk Into A Bank, Uncanny X-Men)

"We Are The Danger captures the exuberance and the drama of forming your first band in a well-crafted story with compelling and relatable characters. And I'm glad to see some Filipino representation!" -Joe Eisma (Morning Glories, Riverdale)
