BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Folklords #2, the latest issue of an all-new original five-issue series from Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt and acclaimed artist Matt Smith about a young man whose forbidden quest reveals the shocking truth about his world and turns everything he ever knew upside down, available in December 18, 2019.

Against the orders of his village, Ansel strikes out to find the Folklords, the only beings that can explain his visions of another world. But the forest is even more dark and terrible than he was told, and Ansel meets two very different women who will change his life—one way or another—forever.

Brian Hurtt, Marie Enger and Matt Kindt present the HEK Treasury and Launch HEK Studio

HEK Studio

What if the TWILIGHT ZONE and McSweeney’s made a baby? 

And what if the baby was one hardcover treasury of comics — curated and created by three acclaimed creators — featuring over 100 pages of story and art? 

Brian Hurtt, Marie Enger, and Matt Kindt present The HEK Treasury, a deluxe collection of all new epic, experimental science fiction, fantasy and genre short stories. The HEK Treasury will showcase each creator as they unleash new ideas, using experimental art and storytelling techniques. If funded through Kickstarter, pledges will be delivered to backers this fall. The HEK TREASURY Kickstarter campaign is live as of August 12th and runs for 30 days. 

The HEK Treasury will be presented in a large prestige format hardcover (8 ¾  x 11 5/8 )*  and offer readers an immersive experience, featuring full color art, a tri-fold narrative poster and loose-leaf story cards. Hurtt, Enger, and Kindt began sharing a studio in St. Louis in 2015 and have been creating graphic novels and comic books side by side for the last four years. This is their first truly collaborative effort and the inaugural publication by their new collective, HEK Studio.

Matt’s contribution to The HEK Treasury is “The Great Mech Wars,” 3 interconnecting 10-page chapters presenting the tale of an old, sad war-mech.

Marie’s Enger’s stories for The HEK Treasury share a dystopian theme of bleak, fantastical, ruined worlds and great despair —  leading to new, dangerous, beginnings. From death cults to telepathy, her stories push the outer limits of storytelling.  

Brian Hurtt’s stories, like Matt’s, consist of three interconnected dystopian tales, featuring weaponized flora and fauna, suspended animation and mutants.

Last summer, HEK Studio purchased a vintage Route 66 garage (circa 1953). They’ve been working on converting it into the first full-time exclusive comic book studio in St. Louis.

 The HEK TREASURY Kickstarter campaign is live now.
