Official Press Release
|ROGER LANGRIDGE’S SNARKED #1
FIRST ISSUE! Roger Langridge is back! The Harvey Award winner behind THE MUPPET SHOW and THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER returns for an all new side-splitting adventure that can only be explained as…SNARKED! Journey with Langridge as he pulls the carpet out from under such Lewis Carroll classics as The Walrus and The Carpenter, Through the Looking Glass, and The Hunting of the Snark, creating an all new world of humorous grandeur. Join Princess Scarlett as she and her baby brother Rusty outwit the villainous royal advisors and team up with the infamous Walrus and Carpenter to set sail in search of their father, the Red King, who has been lost at sea for six months. It’s a rip-roaring industry event you won’t want to miss, featuring connecting covers by Roger Langridge, and a special 1:10 THOR:THE MIGHTY AVENGER homage variant by fan-favorite Chris Samnee!
|THE RINSE #2
Acclaimed crime novelist Gary Phillips (THE JOOK, VERTIGO’S ANGELTOWN and COWBOYS) returns to BOOM! with a new brand of crime! Money launderer Jeff Sinclair has $25 million in stolen casino cash that must be cleaned — whether he likes it or not! But with grisly Vegas enforcers breathing down his neck, and his legitimate (and not-so-legitimate) resources drying up, not to mention IRS agent Della Dash anticipating his every move, will Jeff survive long enough to initiate the rinse? A grounded, gritty look at the world of money laundering in the vein of Elmore Leonard, THE RINSE is a modern crime classic in the making! For fans of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ CRIMINAL!
