First Look: Black Badge #1 From Matt Kindt & Tyler Jenkins At Boom! Studios
by Hannah Means Shannon
Boom! Studios has revealed a First Look at the upcoming first issue of Black Badge, the new series launching by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins in August. The duo previously collaborated on Grass Kings at Boom.
The series features an elite group of Boy Scouts known as the Black Badges who go on covert government missions that would be impossible for adults to complete. When their leader’s attention is split between their mission and tracking down a lost team member, things get even more dangerous than usual. The first issue features a main cover by Matt Kindt, along with variants by Tyler Jenkins and Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer).
Eric Harburn, Senior Editor at Boom! Studios says:
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. 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.
Here’s that First Look!
