Early Preview: Victory Comes At A Cost In ‘Abbott 1973’ #2

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios revealed an early preview of Abbott 1973 #2, the latest issue of the new series from writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Sami Kivelä, with colorist Mattia Iacono and letterer Jim Campbell. This new five-issue series returns to the world of Abbott, as the eponymous unstoppable reporter tackles a new corruption taking over Detroit in 1973 and the supernatural threat behind it.

‘An old friend sends an ominous warning to Abbott – her enemies have returned to weaken her by any means necessary. As the personal losses mount and her efforts at the newspaper are blocked, Abbott finally catches a break – uncovering one of the most guarded secrets of the group aiming to take down the man who would be Detroit’s first Black mayor. But all victories come with a cost…and this one may just be too high for Abbott to pay!’

Print copies of Abbott 1973 #2, featuring covers by Taj Tenfold, Raúl Allén, and Mirka Andolfo, will be available for sale on February 17, 2021.
