BOOM! Studios Announces ‘Eve,’ A Dystopian Coming-Of-Age Story For May 2021

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios has announced Eve, a new five-issue original series from author Victor LaValle and artist Jo Mi-Gyeong about a dangerous journey across a future dystopian America to save the world, available in May 2021.

‘When the ice caps melted, most of humanity was lost to the hidden disease that was released. Now, a mysterious girl named Eve has awoken in secret and must deal with a world that’s nothing like the virtual reality she was raised in. In order to save her father, Eve must embark on a deadly quest across the country, but she has no idea of the threats that await her – or the price she will pay to restore life to a dying planet…’

Lavalle says

What kind of planet are we leaving to our kids? I didn’t want to write some grim story about how this joint went to hell. Instead, I wanted to write a story about how we let the planet fall apart and left it to the younger generations to fix it. This is a story of how an eleven-year-old girl, Eve, and her android teddy bear try to do the seemingly impossible: save the planet, save us.

Eve #1 features main cover art by artist Ario Anindito and variant covers by illustrators Yuko Shimizu and InHyuk Lee.
