BOOM! Reveals Albert Monteys and Scott Newman’s Slaughterhouse-Five Cover

BOOM! Studios has revealed a new cover by Albert Monteys with Scott Newman for the brand new graphic novel, Slaughterhouse-Five. An American classic and one of the world’s seminal anti-war novels, Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five is faithfully presented in graphic novel form for the first time by Eisner Award-winning writer Ryan North and Eisner Award-nominated artist Albert Monteys with color assistance by Ricard Zaplana, available in comic stores on September 9, 2020 and in bookstores on September 15, 2020.

Listen: Billy Pilgrim has…
                                             …read Kilgore Trout
                                             …opened a successful optometry business
                                             …built a loving family
                                             …witnessed the firebombing of Dresden
                                             …traveled to the planet Tralfamadore
                                             …met Kurt Vonnegut
                                                                                          …come unstuck in time.

Billy Pilgrim’s journey is at once a farcical look at the horror and tragedy of war where children are placed on the frontlines and die (so it goes), and a moving examination of what it means to be fallibly human.

Slaughterhouse-Five

Spinning out of Outlawed comes Champions, New Warriors, and Power Pack!

The lives of your favorite super heroes are changing forever! When a law is passed outlawing teenage vigilantes, the already-high stakes facing Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales, Ironheart, and more will suddenly be raised. The government is imposing new restrictions on Marvel’s teen heroes, but that’s just the beginning of the story. Now, it’s time for Marvel’s next generation to fight back!

Three brand-new series, each reflecting the new Marvel status quo, were announced earlier today:

Champions will be a new ongoing series spinning out of Outlawed. Written by Dr. Eve L. Ewing with art by Simone Di Meo, this series will be chock full of surprises as the Champions prove that despite the new law, the world needs them more than ever!

Champions

Writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Luciano Vecchio’s New Warriors is where fans will get to reunite with old friends and meet new ones! The series will show Night Thrasher reuniting with classic New Warriors Firestar, Rage, Speedball, Namorita and Silhouette to mentor a whole new group of young heroes. Get your first look at these mysterious new heroes, and stay tuned for more information on them in the weeks to come!

New Warriors

We’re getting new adventures of Marvel’s original team of young super heroes. That’s right – Power Pack is back in an all-new series written by Ryan North and drawn by Nico Leon. Not quite youngsters anymore, the Power siblings will have to use their honed super hero skills to settle an old grudge while they go up against the brand–new law banning them from doing what they love!

Power Pack

The changes all start in March’s Outlawed where new rules and restrictions, unheard of since the days of Marvel’s Civil War, are imposed on the youngest heroes of the Marvel Universe. Be on the lookout for more announcements about the far reaching effects of this new status quo.

Champions, The New Warriors, and Power Pack arrive in comic shops, on the Marvel Comics App, and on Marvel.com this April!

Kurt Vonnegut’s Masterpiece Slaughterhouse-Five Gets a Graphic Novel Adaptation from BOOM! Studios

It’s been a few years since we first caught wind that the works of Kurt Vonnegut were being pursued for comics. Today, BOOM! Studios announced a brand new graphic novel, Slaughterhouse-Five. An American classic and one of the world’s seminal anti-war novels, Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five is faithfully presented in graphic novel form for the first time by Eisner Award-winning writer Ryan North and Eisner Award-nominated artist Albert Monteys with color assistance by Ricard Zaplana, available in stores September 2020.

…come unstuck in time.

Billy Pilgrim’s journey is at once a farcical look at the horror and tragedy of war where children are placed on the frontlines and die (so it goes), and a moving examination of what it means to be fallibly human. 

Kurt Vonnegut’s black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America’s attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959, and established him as “a true artist” (The New York Times) with Cat’s Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, “one of the best living American writers.” Kurt Vonnegut died in 2007.

• INCLUDING SHOCKING TWISTS!!

• Things go from bad to worse as Brain Drain is still missing, and the greatest villains in Marvel history team up to take out the one thing that’s stood in their way: our hero, Doreen Green!
• With Melissa doing everything she can to destroy Squirrel Girl, is there anything Doreen can do to survive??
• Gosh, I sure hope so because it’d be nice if we actually make it to #50 BUT TECHNICALLY YOU NEVER KNOW!!
• Especially when Squirrel Girl’s first villain, DOCTOR DOOM, is involved…
• I don’t want to say more because SPOILERS, but trust us when we say this is a bonkers issue in which bonkers things happen, and you should definitely order it right now!!

BRAIN DRAIN IS MISSING!

• Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
• Let’s do the good news: It’s the start of a new Squirrel Girl arc! BRAIN DRAIN is missing! A sinister face from the past returns! And the hitherto UNBEATABLE Squirrel Girl will have to face CERTAIN DEFEAT to save him!
• Now the bad news: While this is the start of a new Squirrel Girl arc, it’s the start of our LAST Squirrel Girl arc! We’re going out on a high note. You have been amazing, and making this book has been amazing, but sadly in four months, THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL will end with issue #50. I KNOW.
• Now the good news again: Because it’s our last story ever we’re making it COMPLETELY HUGE AND AMAZING and it is going to BLOW YOUR MIND!
• It’s the start of the most nuts Squirrel Girl story ever as lives hang in the balance, narrative threads are resolved, and shocking reveals are made!
