BOOM! Studios Previews for 12-23-15

Venus #1 (of 4)
Writer: Rick Loverd
Artist: Huang Danlan

What’s to Love: Surviving against all odds. Adventures on the frontier. Lying on the cusp of discovering something new. Rick Loverd (Berserker) and artist Huang Danlan brought us a story that evokes the history of great adventurers from the pilgrims to the Western pioneers, from deep-sea explorers to polar trailblazers, all of whom searched for a new beginning.

What It Is: In 2150, Earth’s resources are depleted, and countries race to outer space to mine what they need from other planets. China has laid claim to Mars, so the U.S. and its allies have to make do with getting what it needs from the inhospitable world of Venus. But for a group of Americans making its way there, survival has become all too real. After their ship crash-lands on the planet, the scrappy crew is forced to do whatever it takes to navigate the harsh landscape in their journey to find the science base they were flying toward. In the vein of great adventure survival stories like Lost and The Martian, there’s only one reality on Venus—adapt or die.

Fiction Squad TP
Author: Paul Jenkins
Artists: Ramon Bachs

What’s to Love: After publishing Paul Jenkins’ Fairy Quest, we kinda have a thing for Fablewood, where all fairy tales and bedtime stories live side-by-side. So when he came up with a mystery and fantasy mash-up adventure set there and enlisted his Civil War: Front Line artist Ramon Bachs, we hopped aboard faster than Alice went down the rabbit hole. In Fiction Squad, every nursery rhyme is a crime scene in the making. If you like your mystery mashed up with fantasy, like Fables and Once Upon a Time, this has got you covered.

What It Is: Fablewood is a pretty dangerous place, but no area is more dangerous than the City of Rimes, deep in the heart of the Children’s Realm. After transferring in from the Realm of Mystery, a failed detective from an unfinished prose novel, Frankie Mack, is about to uncover a conspiracy that could unmake storytelling itself. After Humpty Dumpty is pushed to crack and Jack (of Jack and Jill) goes AWOL, Frankie and his partner, Simple Simon, are put on the case. Collects the complete six-issue miniseries.

 

The Woods Vol. 3 TP
Writer: James Tynion IV

One year later, the Bay Point students all reunite in New London and gain some semblance of normalcy, but there are new threats to overcome and emotional hurdles to deal with. Created and written by James Tynion IV (Memetic, Batman Eternal) and illustrated by Michael Dialynas (Amala’s Blade), “New London” collects the critically acclaimed third arc (issues #9-12) of the best-selling series.
