Virescit Vulnere Virtus: Previewing BOOM! Studios’ ‘Dark Blood’ #1

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios’ Dark Blood #1 drops this week from screenwriter LaToya Morgan, artist Walt Barna, colorist A.H.G., and letterer AndWorld Design.

‘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.’

Featuring main cover art by Valentine De Landro and variant covers by Juni Ba and Dan Mora, Dark Blood #1 hits the spinner racks next Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
