Head into the frozen unknown with a first look at BOOM! Studios’ “Black Badge” #2
It’s been established by now that the Boy Scouts are hardcore, and the protagonists of Black Badge even more so. I mean, these guys are going on special ops missions to extract prisoners from behind enemy lines. That’s worth a merit badge or two for sure.
But what happens when these young commandos encounter a rival troop? Can they work together, or are tensions bound to rise? To find out the answer, you’ll have to wait until the second issue of Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins’ new series, but thankfully BOOM! is here to give us a sneak peek. Check it out below.

“[Kindt & Jenkins] injected this addictive new Boy Scout series with plenty of their trademark humor, charm, and intellectual edge” - Syfy
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 13, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at BLACK BADGE #2, the next chapter of the 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.
While on a mission to locate political prisoners in Siberia, the Black Badge team meets another group of young operatives who call themselves the Mounties. With the mission on the line, will they be able to work together or will the two teams turn on one another? This issue features a main cover by Matt Kindt, along with a variant by Tyler Jenkins.
“Becoming a Black Badge isn’t easy, as new recruit Willy is quickly realizing,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “With the harrowing North Korean initiation mission in the rear-view mirror, Matt & Tyler set their sights on the wilds of Siberia for the next leg of this provocative, globe-trotting spy-fi adventure.”
Black Badge #2 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on September 19.
