Boum (Samantha Leriche-Gionet) is a freelance comic artist and illustrator who lives and works in Montreal, Canada.

She enjoys the company of rabbits, wine, snowy days, cheese, retro video games, and sporting weird hairdos.

Boumeries is mostly about her life sharing a flat with her programming partner Pierre-Luc and their daughters Margot and Annette, working at home, juggling with everyday chores and drawing, and having absurd dreams in the meantime.
