Deathmatch #1 was a huge success for BOOM!, selling more than any non-licensed comic for the publisher. Paul Jenkins‘ debut issue provided thrills and surprises, while developing the setting for this deadly new series.
32 Were Chosen. 31 Will Die.
Deathmatch #2 arrives later this month (1/30), and here are the next contestants…
A powerful and mysterious supervillain has imprisoned the world’s greatest superheroes, forcing them to fight to the death until there is but one victor. It’s kill or be killed as we settle the score on all those hypothetical superhero match-ups in this new ongoing series by Paul Jenkins (SENTRY, INHUMANS) and artist Carlos Magno (PLANET OF THE APES)!
As you have no doubt seen the last two months, we have been featuring contestant profiles every weekday. To see all the contestants, visit our Deathmatch Death Draft Central.
Each month, prior to the new issue coming out, we will reveal the primary deathmatch along with profiles of the two participating characters with their key characteristic and powers. Fans will be able to post their predictions for the winner of the deathmatch on our message board, at that time. If you correctly predict the outcome of every deathmatch throughout the course of the series, you will be rewarded with a truly exclusive item at the end of the series (along with your favorite comic shop).
