Marcos Prior and Eisner-nominated artist David Rubín (The Hero, Rumble, Battling Boy: The Rise of Aurora West) weave a politically satirical look at democracy today through the lense of hyper-violence and explosive action.

Imagine a world overrun by big business and “fake news” via the social media machine . . . In The Grand Abyss Hotel neoliberalism has become a state religion, while the citizens quietly and then not-so-quietly rebel, giving way to violence on the streets and sowing chaos.

A masked vigilante takes on the role of hero to battle politicians, the erosion of democracy, and social media. After the fires burn low and the dust settles, social order returns. Or does it?

BOOM! Studios Unveils The First Look at Firefly #5

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at Firefly #5 from New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon. The comic comes to stores April 24, 2019.

Finally, the crew of the Serenity is back together again, ready to escape this gorram planet and never look back. There’s just one problem—they left their captain behind! Mal’s currently tied up on Boss Moon’s shuttle headed straight for the closest Alliance outpost, where he’ll have to sit trial for his war crimes and most likely hang for his actions during the Unification War. With Mal captured, a busted engine, and half the planet still on their tail, our favorite band of space thieves will have to pull a miracle out of thin air to reunite with their captain once again.

Firefly #5 features a main cover by Lee Garbett, along with variant covers by Joe Quinones, W. Scott Forbes, and David Rubin.
