BOOM! Studios Previews for 12-09-15

Snow Blind #1 (of 4)
Writer: Ollie Masters
Artist: Tyler Jenkins

What’s to Love: With books like Hit and Day Men in our library, you can tell we absolutely love noir stories, and the more unconventional, the better! Critically acclaimed writer Ollie Masters (The Kitchen) and artist Tyler Jenkins (Peter Panzerfaust) have crafted a tense noir story in the tradition of Criminal, Scalped, and 100 Bullets, set in the bleak, snow-covered landscape of Alaska, a perfect setting to highlight the cold nature of crime.

What It Is: What happens when you discover your dad isn’t the man you thought he was? For high school teen Teddy, life in a sleepy suburb in Alaska turns upside-down when he innocently posts a photo of his dad on Facebook, only to learn he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program. A man seeking revenge invades their town, and soon FBI agents arrive, too. But what if his dad’s reasons for going into the program aren’t as innocent as he says?

Escape from New York Vol. 1 TP
Writer: Christopher Sebela
Artist: Diego Barreto

What’s to Love: “I thought you were dead.” “Call me Plissken!” We could seriously quote John Carpenter’s gritty cult classic all day. Expanding Carpenter’s world of Big Trouble in Little China in comics has been a dream, and now we’re diving into the war-torn “future” of Escape from New York with the most reluctant anti-hero in action flicks, Snake Plissken!

What It Is: Snake Plissken is back! Picking up right at the end of the cult classic film, Snake heads south to get away from it all, but trouble follows him to Florida where a militant family leads an attempted secession from the rest of the U.S.! Collects issues #1-4.

Munchkin: Deck the Dungeons #1
Imprint: BOOM! Box

Writer: Katie Cook
Artist: Mike Luckas

What’s to Love: There’s nothing better than getting a ton of loot during the holidays, and we can always count on Spyke and Flower to make the Yuletide a little more interesting!

What It Is: Charles Dickens is turning in his grave as Katie Cook (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic) and Mike Luckas (Skull Kickers) put a Munchkin-sized spin on A Christmas Carol in this holiday one-shot. Tour the Dungeons of Past, Present, and Future! No one learns anything, obviously, except to pillage, steal and stab others in the back in the spirit of Christmas. All first printing copies include a Munchkin playing card!
