BOOM! Studios Returns To The World Of Abbot With New Mini-Series

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios has announced Abbott: 1973, a new series set to drop January 2021. Written by Saladin Ahmed, with art by Sami Kivelä, color by Mattia Iacono, and letters by Jim Campbell, the five-issue series takes place in the world of Abbott, as the eponymous unstoppable reporter tackles a new corruption in 1973 Detroit and the supernatural threat behind it.
‘Elena Abbott is one of Detroit’s toughest reporters—and after defeating the dark forces that murdered her husband, she’s focused on the most important election in the city’s history. But when someone uses dark magic to sabotage the campaign of the prospective first Black mayor of Detroit, it becomes clear to Abbott that the supernatural conspiracy in her city is even greater than she ever imagined. Now Abbott must exhaust all her abilities as a reporter and a supernatural savior to rescue Detroit—but at what cost to her own life?’
“I’m ridiculously thrilled to bring readers a new chapter in Elena Abbott’s life! The first series generated incredible excitement and energy, and we’ve fed off of that to bring you an even bigger story,” said Ahmed. “It’s 1973, Elena is living her best life with Amelia, and Detroit is preparing to elect its first Black mayor. But while Elena’s powers have grown, they may not be enough to stop the shadows that have seized those closest to her—shadows that threaten to engulf the whole city.”
