Discover the Secrets Hidden Across a World Full of Magic and Monsters in February 2020

BOOM! Studios is proud to reveal a first look at FOLKLORDS #4, the latest issue of an all-new original five-issue series from Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (Grass Kings, Black Badge), acclaimed artist Matt Smith (Hellboy & the BPRD: Long Night at Goloski, Lake of Fire), colorist Chris O’Halloran, and letterer Jim Campbell, about a young man whose forbidden quest reveals the shocking truth about his world and turns everything he ever knew upside down, available in February 2020.

Ansel and his new ally Ugly begin to make their way to the Branch Library of Banned Books—and one step closer to the Folklords. But the Library is full of twists and turns they’ll never expect… and the closer they get, the harder it is for them to pin down where Ansel’s story is going to end…

FOLKLORDS #4 features main cover art by Matt Smith and a variant cover art by David Rubín (Ether).
