First Look at Black Badge #1 by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins

BOOM! Studios has released a first look inside Black Badge #1, the new ongoing series from Grass Kings creative team Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins. The series was announced back in May. In the press release, BOOM! Senior Editor Eric Harburn drew the short straw and was forced to provide the latest in a never-ending series of editorial press release quotes for the BOOM! press mailer template.

Sometimes being a boy scout means learning how to sew a badge. Other times it means sneaking into North Korea to stop global warfare…and maybe sewing up your teammates. Matt and Tyler bring the unbridled creativity that’s earned Grass Kings both Eisner and Ringo Award nominations and marry it to a fun, provocative, and absolutely unpredictable story in BLACK BADGE.

Black Badge #1 hits stores on August 8th. Check out the preview below:

Meet the Black Badges, a top-secret, elite branch of boy scouts tasked by the government to take on covert missions that no adult ever could.

Among their organization, the Black Badges are the elite; the best of the best. The missions they take are dangerous, and they will only get worse as their leader’s attention is split between their mission and tracking down a lost team member. A member who disappeared years ago, presumed dead. This debut issue features a main cover by Matt Kindt, along with variants by Tyler Jenkins and the Eisner Award-nominated Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer).

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
