Boom! Studios Solicitations for NOVEMBER 2015

BOOM! STUDIOS NEW LAUNCHING SINGLES AND ONE-SHOTS

KLAUS #1 (of 6)

Retail Price: $3.99
Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Dan Mora
Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Dan Mora
Jackpot: Frazer Irving
BOOM! 10 Years Incentive Cover: Brian Stelfreeze
Incentive Cover: Chris Burnham
What’s to Love: Grant Morrison is one of the most prolific and best-selling writers in comics, earning a
reputation for his ability to effectively revamp superheroes like Animal Man, Batman, and the X-Men.
His creator-owned titles are also highly praised, including The Invisibles, Nameless, We3, and Joe the
Barbarian because no one tells mythical stories better than him. In Klaus, Grant reimagines one of the
biggest cultural myths in history, and we could not be more excited to pair him with one of our
homegrown talents, Dan Mora (Hexed)!
What It Is: Set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, Klaus tells the story of how Santa Claus really
came to be. Where did he begin? What was he like when he was young? And what happens when he
faces his greatest challenge? Drawing on Santa Claus’ wilder roots in Viking lore and Siberian
shamanism—taking in the creepier side of Christmas, and characters like the sinister Krampus—Klaus is
“Santa Claus: Year One.”

 

LAST SONS OF AMERICA #1 (of 4)
Retail Price: $3.99
Writer: Phillip Kennedy Johnson
Artist: Matthew Dow Smith
Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Tonci Zonjic
BOOM! 10 Years Incentive Cover: Brian Stelfreeze
Incentive Cover: Matthew Dow Smith
What’s to Love: We were instantly taken with newcomer Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s inventive high
concept story and mature characterization. Throw in a crime thriller element and Matthew Dow Smith’s
moody art and Last Sons of America can be the perfect answer to the question, “What if Elmore Leonard
wrote Children of Men?”
What It Is: When a biological terrorist attack makes it impossible for anyone in America to conceive
children, adoption of kids from other counties explodes. Brothers Jackie and Julian are adoption agents
based in Nicaragua. They usually do all their options through legal means, but they’re facing increasing
competition from straight-up kidnappers. One desperate move from Jackie could put them in the crosshairs
of some very dangerous people.

 

SIX-GUN GORILLA: PEN & INK #1
Retail Price: $14.99
Writer: Simon Spurrier
Artist: Jeff Stokely
Cover Artist: Jeff Stokely
What’s to Love: Calling all process junkies! If you’re as much a fan of the behind-the-scenes process of
illustration as you are of the finished product, you will love this in-depth look at the making of the
critically acclaimed Six-Gun Gorilla.
What It Is: This next installment of the Pen & Ink series collects Six-Gun Gorilla issues #1-2 in an
oversized, 11” x 17” format that features Jeff Stokely’s inks alongside new commentary and creative
insights from Stokely and writer Simon Spurrier.
