Prepare for Battle on Ronin Island in March

BOOM! Studios has announced Ronin Island #1, kicking off a new five issue limited series from superstar writer Greg Pak and fan favorite artist Giannis Milonogiannis that examines how we move forward when our past divides us, set against the backdrop of a post-disaster Feudal Japan.

Ronin Island #1 arrives in stores March 2019 and features a main cover by Milonogiannis, along with variant covers by David Lafuente and award-winning artist Ethan Young.

After a mysterious attack devastates a great swath of 19th century Japan, Korea, and China, survivors from all three lands find refuge on a hidden island and build a new society. Hana, the orphaned daughter of Korean farmers, and Kenichi, son of a great samurai leader, have little in common except for a mutual disdain for the other. But these young warriors will have to work together when an army invades the island with shocking news: the Shogun has returned and the Island is expected to pay fealty in exchange for protection from a new threat…a mutated horde that threatens to wipe out all humanity.

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Wizard Beach #1, a new five-issue limited series available in December 5, 2018 from writer Shaun Simon and artist Conor Nolan.

What happens when a secret, reclusive community of mountain witches and forest wizards comes out of hiding and reveals itself to the world? A magical beach town with a boardwalk of magic shops and chill spots becomes the go-to location for those just looking to get away from it all. Enter Hexley Daggard Ragbottom, a young wizard who, against his father’s wishes, escapes the solitary confines of his isolated magical community to seek out the greatest wizard of all time, his Uncle Salazar, in an attempt to get his aid in fighting the life-threatening freeze killing their people.

But turns out, his Uncle “Sally” has other plans. Namely, napping and hanging out at his boardwalk magic shop “Wands and Such.”

Firefly #1 is Getting a Second Printing Due to Sell Out Before Its Release

BOOM! Studios has announced that Firefly #1, which brings the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon back to comic books, has sold out at the distributor level before arriving in comic book shops on November 14th.

To meet this overwhelming demand from fans,  Firefly #1 Second Printing Variant will arrive in stores on December 12th with an all-new cover by Kirbi Fagan featuring everyone’s favorite miracle worker – Kaywinnet Lee “Kaylee” Frye.

New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon, tell the definitive story of the Unification War, the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike.

Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple mission goes wrong, he’s forced to confront it in the form of the Unificators, mercenaries deputized to hunt down war criminals…and they’ve got Mal and Zoe at the top of their list! War can make villains of even the best men, and Mal’s quest for redemption will put him at odds with his own crew, forcing him to make a choice: fix the past or fight for the future.

Firefly #1 Second Printing Variant is available exclusively in comic shops on December 12th.

Get a First Look at Cullen Bunn’s The Empty Man #2

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at The Empty Man #2, the newest chapter in this hotly anticipated story by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Jesús Hervás.

Terror rises as the Empty Man pandemic continues to ravage entire populations, tearing families apart and bringing the afflicted together to commit heinous acts of violence with no end or relief in sight. The Kerry family continues to struggle with Melissa’s early stages of the disease as the rest of the world unravels and the mystery deepens. What compels the victims to perpetrate such twisted savagery on themselves and others? What do they really see when they hallucinate the Empty Man? And does the disease simply unleash the rage and madness within or is the Empty Man who makes them do these things real?

Debuting in 2014, The Empty Man captivated readers as Bunn and Eisner Award-nominated artist Vanesa R. Del Rey introduced their unflinching look at a dystopic version of the world we know, where a terrifying disease has taken on almost deific connotations. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As cults rose nationwide, the FBI and CDC entered a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cults and uncover a cure. This new ongoing The Empty Man comic book series delivers terrifying new horrors, perfect for new readers and longtime fans alike, in the world that captivated fans worldwide and led to a feature film adaptation currently in production at 20th Century Fox.

The Empty Man #2 featuring a main cover by Del Rey and a variant by Hervás will be available for sale on December 12th.
