"All the world's a stage . . . but what happens behind the curtain is pure magic--literally! When Jory transfers to an all-boys private high school, he's taken in by the only ones who don't treat him like a new kid, the lowly stage crew known as the Backstagers. Not only does he gain great, lifetime friends, Jory is also introduced to an entire magical world that lives beyond the curtain. With the unpredictable twists and turns of the underground world, the Backstagers venture into the unknown, determined to put together the best play their high school has ever seen. James Tynion IV (Detective Comics, The Woods) teams up with artist Rian Sygh (Munchkin, Stolen Forest) for an incredibly earnest story that explores what it means to find a place to fit in when you're kinda an outcast"

A magical fantasy set in the backstage of a high school theater department?! This feels made for me!

A story of the kids behind the curtain, with a fun twist. The backstagers are the back bone of their schools theater, but what everyone doesn't know is they have a magic tunnel system with ever changing doors and rooms that they get all of their supplies from. The trick is the tunnels can be dangerous if you don't know how to navigate them. A fun twist on the culture of technical theater. As a once high school backstager there was plenty of great moments I related to.
