BOOM! Studios bring more pentacorn goodness in a first look at "CODA" #2
BOOM! Studios' CODA has already proven to be one of the most entertaining books of the year, even after just one issue. The series sends up high fantasy tropes while still telling an engaging story, which is no small feat at all. We love it so much we even dedicated our most recent podcast episode to it, and Brian wrote a thought-provoking review to boot.
That's not to mention that the first issue went to a second printing before it even hit the stands, if you still needed convincing to pick up a copy.
The good people at BOOM! have revealed a first look at the second issue of the series, so check it out below. The gallery also includes variant covers from Lee Garbett and Chris Wildgoose, just to sweeten the pot.
Your First Look at CODA #2
from Simon Spurrier & Matías Bergara
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 16, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to present your first look at CODA #2, the next chapter of the critically-acclaimed broken fantasy epic from Eisner-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (Sandman, The Spire) and Matías Bergara (Cannibal, Supergirl). This all-new series, which sold out at a distributor level before the release of the first issue, reveals the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, in which an antisocial former bard named Hum seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him...but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the weird wasteland.
In CODA #2, featuring a main cover by Bergara, along with variant covers by Lee Garbett (Skyward) and Chris Wildgoose (Batgirl), a dangerous person from Hum’s past has returned. Now he’s bound, blindfolded and sent into exile on the back of Nag, his loyal Pentacorn. Things don’t seem like they can get worse for Hum...until they get much worse.
“If you liked the craziness that Si and Matias cooked up in the first issue of CODA, you’re gonna love where they take the story next – though Hum might think otherwise,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “It’s exciting to see readers, retailers, and press all embrace the exciting new world created within the pages of this series, and it’s the team’s goal to make every issue more surprising than the last.”
CODA #2 hits comic shops and digital retailers on June 13.
