Hunt The Rich In Space In BOOM! Studios’ New Series ‘Know Your Station’
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios has announced Know Your Station, a brand new five-issue limited series from writer Sarah Gailey and artist Liana Kangas.
‘Death is the great leveler, even for the 1%… the wealthiest people in the solar system abandoned the Earth for a private sanctuary in space, leaving the rest of us to die amidst cataclysmic climate change. But the ultra-wealthy won’t be safe for long…
A murderer is on the loose, specifically targeting the super-rich! Soon, Elise, an employee of the Avulsion Corporation, is wrapped up in a deadly investigation, with each issue of this outrageously macabre series featuring a new, diabolically different kill!’
“I could not be more excited to explore new frontiers of wealth and violence in Know Your Station, a series in which space is no longer the one place that hasn’t been corrupted by capitalism,” said Gailey. “Working with Liana Kangas to develop this series has been a source of incredible creative joy, and there couldn’t be a better home for this story than BOOM! I am just thrilled to get to work with Liana to shine a light on the gory inner workings of the 1%.”
“Getting to work with a phenomenal editorial team and favorite prose writer of mine, Sarah Gailey, is quite the foundation for my excitement to construct and create with them on this epically gruesome series,” said Kangas. “There’s something to be said about watching someone mysteriously murdering billionaires AND stick it to the man—but IN SPACE? Sign me up.”
Know Your Station #1 is set to drop in December, featuring main cover art by series artist Kangas, and variant covers by illustrators Jenny Frison, Becca Carey, Jenn Woodall and more.
