Victor LaValle’s Destroyer Brings a New Horror to BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios has announced Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, an all-new monthly comic book series debuting in May 2017 from best-selling horror novelist Victor LaValle and artist Dietrich Smith. The recipient of prestigious honors including a Whiting Writers’ Award, a United States Artists Ford Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Shirley Jackson Award, and an American Book Award, LaValle makes his full-length comic book debut with an intense original series exploring the legacy of the greatest family in horror fiction.

When Dr. Jo Baker loses her son as the tragic result of an encounter with the police, she turns to science to find true justice for the death of her only child… by resurrecting him. Embracing her heritage as the last living heir of the Frankenstein family, Baker will soon come face-to-face with her family’s original monster, one whose quest to eliminate the scourge of humanity from the planet has been reawakened by recent events. But as the two must decide if they’re friend or foe, Dr. Baker will be forced to question if this battle for vengeance makes her the family’s true monster.
