by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios has announced Dark Blood, an evocative new six-issue original series from screenwriter LaToya Morgan, artist Walt Barna, and colorist A.H.G. about a young man forging a brave new future for himself and his family while dealing with his past, available in July 2021.

‘Alabama, 1955. Avery Aldridge was a decorated soldier during World War II; now he’s just an ordinary young Black man busy providing for his wife and daughter. But the wounds of the past have a way of coming back, and he’ll soon discover that he is anything but ordinary. After a run-in awakens strange new abilities, Avery’s about to become more powerful than he could have ever dared to dream… in a country and society that never wanted him to have any power.’

Morgan says

Dark Blood is a thrilling, genre-bending story that combines twisty sci-fi and historical action, incredible feats of bravery and deep familial love. I could not be more grateful for my creative partners at BOOM! who believed in this passion project from the start. I’m so excited for readers to take this wild ride with these characters I love so much.
