A Catastrophic Spiral Begins In Alienated #1 First Look

by James Ferguson

Alienated, a new series from BOOM! Studios is set to debut next month and we’ve got an early preview of the first issue. Written by Simon Spurrier, illustrated by Chris Wildgoose, colored by Andre May, and lettered by Jim Campbell, the comic is described as a “subversive coming-of-age story” dealing with the power to change the world and the unready hands to wield it.

Three teenagers, each an outcast in their own way, stumble upon an unearthly entity as it’s born. As they bond over this shared secret and the creature’s incredible abilities, it becomes clear to the teenagers that their cute little pet is a predator in the making—and it’s in need of prey. Guided by the best intentions at first, the teens’ decisions soon become corrupted by adolescent desires, small town jealousies, and internal rivalries, sending them into a catastrophic spiral of their own making.

Alienated #1 features a main cover by Wildgoose and a variant cover by Bengal. It’s set for release on February 12th, 2020.
