Go deep undercover with a first look at BOOM! Studios' "Black Badge"
The idea behind BOOM! Studios' Black Badge is brilliant: boy scouts who are also covert ops specialists. Need a guide through the woods? Check. Building a boxcar racer? They're your men. Allies trapped behind enemy lines need extracting? Over and out.
With a team like Eisner nominees Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins, you just know this book is going to be great. Check out the preview of the first issue below, including variant covers from Jenkins and the brilliant Jeff Lemire.
Your First Look at Eisner Award-Nominated
Matt Kindt & Tyler Jenkins’
BLACK BADGE #1
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 9, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at BLACK BADGE #1, beginning a new monthly series reuniting Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins, the Eisner Award-nominated dream team behind Grass Kings, in August 2018. Meet the Black Badges, a top-secret, elite branch of boy scouts tasked by the government to take on covert missions that no adult ever could.
Among their organization, the Black Badges are the elite; the best of the best. The missions they take are dangerous, and they will only get worse as their leader’s attention is split between their mission and tracking down a lost team member. A member who disappeared years ago, presumed dead. This debut issue features a main cover by Matt Kindt, along with variants by Tyler Jenkins and the Eisner Award-nominated Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer).
“Sometimes being a boy scout means learning how to sew a badge. Other times it means sneaking into North Korea to stop global warfare…and maybe sewing up your teammates,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Matt and Tyler bring the unbridled creativity that’s earned Grass Kings both Eisner and Ringo Award nominations and marry it to a fun, provocative, and absolutely unpredictable story in BLACK BADGE.”
Black Badge #1 will hit comic shops and other retailers on August 8.
