Lee Bermejo And Mattson Tomlin Announce ‘A Vicious Circle’ With BOOM! Studios

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios has announced A Vicious Circle, a prestige 3-issue original series from writer Mattson Tomlin and artist Lee Bermejo

‘Shawn Thacker is a trained assassin from the future who seeks revenge on the only other man with his affliction—each life they take forces them both to involuntarily travel between vastly different past and future eras. Spanning from 22nd century Tokyo to 1950s New Orleans to the Cretaceous Era and beyond, the two mortal rivals are locked in a battle of wills that spans millions of years, all to alter the course of history.’ 

With each time period, Bermejo adjusts his artististic style to pay homage to luminary comics artists and historical master painters, presented in a prestige, oversized format.

“Lee Bermejo is an artist of the highest caliber and getting to partner with him as we push each other into the vortex of involuntary time travel has been a uniquely satisfying experience,” said Tomlin. “I’m very excited for you to join us on this journey that unpacks the good, the evil, and the vicious meaning of life.”

A Vicious Circle is a passion project and the most deliciously challenging thing I’ve done in my career thus far,” added Bermejo.  “This is thanks to the collaboration with Mattson, whose gift of being able to bring intimacy and subtle nuance to epic genre concepts helps make them feel personal as much as bombastic. It’s also an opportunity for us to embrace and play with what makes the medium of sequential art so unique and give readers a tailored, stylistic experience to every sequence.”  

Print copies of A Vicious Circle #1 will be available for sale in December 2022.
