BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at BLACK BADGE #2, the next chapter of the new monthly series reuniting Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins, the Eisner Award-nominated dream team behind Grass Kings. 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.
While on a mission to locate political prisoners in Siberia, the Black Badge team meets another group of young operatives who call themselves the Mounties. With the mission on the line, will they be able to work together or will the two teams turn on one another? This issue features a main cover by Matt Kindt, along with a variant by Tyler Jenkins.
“Becoming a Black Badge isn’t easy, as new recruit Willy is quickly realizing,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “With the harrowing North Korean initiation mission in the rear-view mirror, Matt & Tyler set their sights on the wilds of Siberia for the next leg of this provocative, globe-trotting spy-fi adventure.”
We were huge fans of the first issue, calling it “an enjoyable blend of humour, drama and high-concept espionage”, and you can check out our full review by CLICKING HERE.
BLACK BADGE #2 goes on sale on September 19th, but in the meantime, you can feast your eyes on some of Tyler’s artwork from issue two, featuring some typically striking colour work from his wife Hillary, as well as a variant cover from Jenkins himself.
