Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins Announce Black Badge
BOOM! Studios has announced Black Badge #1, beginning a new monthly series reuniting Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins, the Eisner Award-nominated dream team behind Grass Kings, in August 2018. Meet the Black Badges, a top-secret, elite branch of boy scouts tasked by the government to take on covert missions that no adult ever could.
Among their organization, the Black Badges are the elite; the best of the best. The missions they take are dangerous, and they will only get worse as their leader’s attention is split between their mission and tracking down a lost team member. A member who disappeared years ago, presumed dead.
Black Badge is a haunting look at foreign policy, culture wars and isolationism through the lens of kids who know they must fix the world that adults have broken. The debut issue features a main cover by Matt Kindt, along with variants by Tyler Jenkins and the Eisner Award-nominated Jeff Lemire.
