BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Bury the Lede, a new original graphic novel from New York Times bestselling author Gaby Dunn and artist Claire Roe, with colors by Miquel Rodriguez, which arrives in stores October 2019. Inspired by Dunn’s own experiences as a young reporter at The Boston Globe, Bury the Lede is a thrilling story about a young reporter’s search for truth leading her down a dark path while she goes toe-to-toe with a potential killer.
Cub reporter Madison Jackson is young, scrappy, and hungry to prove that she deserves her coveted college internship at the premier newspaper in town, The Boston Lede, where she dreams of a career-making headline. So when her police scanner mentions a brutal murder tied to a prominent Boston family, Madison races to the crime scene, looking for the scoop of the century. What she finds instead is the woman who’ll change her life forever: Dahlia Kennedy, a celebrity socialite covered in blood and the prime suspect in the murder of her husband and child. When Madison is the only person Dahlia will speak to, everything rides on the untested shoulders of this young journalist who sinks ever deeper into the dark, twisted landscape of the city’s hidden circles of crime, corruption, and privilege in order to unveil the truth.
Bury the Lede will be available for sale on October 2, 2019 at local comic book shops and on sale October 8, 2019 at book stores.
Ash Parsons was raised to believe she’s special. As someone with a quirk of genetics that lets her teleport things, she’s the golden goose of her family.
Her family is the foundation of a struggling criminal outfit trying to get ahead in the world and Ash is able to pop out whole fleets of cars and entire bank vaults. But while she can teleport valuables and her accomplices, she can’t teleport herself — making every job a trust fall with her family there to catch her and escort her to safety. It’s a perfect setup but as things begin to change and the Parsons move up in the world, Ash will find herself pushing back against her golden cage, with deadly results.
Written by Christopher Sebela with art by Chris Visions, Trust Fall #1 is out June 12, 2019 from AfterShock. The first issue features a cover by Visions and a 1:10 incentive cover by Claire Roe.
BOOM! Studios today announced Bury the Lede, a new original graphic novel from New York Times bestselling author Gaby Dunn and artist Claire Roe, which arrives in stores October 2019. Inspired by Dunn’s own experiences at The Boston Globe as a reporter, Bury the Lede is a timely story about how we find answers in an increasingly complex world and the hidden threats surrounding those truths.
Twenty-one-year-old Madison T. Jackson is already the star of the Emerson College student newspaper when she nabs a coveted night internship at Boston’s premiere newspaper, The Boston Lede. The job’s simple: do whatever the senior reporters tell you to do, from fetching coffee to getting a quote from a grieving parent. It’s grueling work, so when the murder of a prominent Boston businessman comes up on the police scanner, Madison races to the scene of the grisly crime. There, Madison meets the woman who will change her life forever: prominent socialite Dahlia Kennedy, who is covered in gore and being arrested for the murder of her family. The newspapers put everyone they can in front of her with no results until, with nothing to lose, Madison gets a chance – and unexpectedly barrels headfirst into danger she never anticipated.
