BOOM! Studios have just announced KING OF NOWHERE, a brand new five-part series from Eisner Award-nominated writer W. Maxwell Prince (Ice Cream Man, The Electric Sublime) and acclaimed artist Tyler Jenkins (Grass Kings, Black Badge, my “Best Artist of 2018”), set for release in March 2020.
The series, which will feature colours from Hilary Jenkins (Black Badge), and letters by AndWorld Design (Martian Manhunter), promises to deliver “an unforgettable thriller that explores the miraculous, the mundane, and all the mysteries in between.”
Here’s the official blurb:
Lovable, drunken lowlife Denis awakens on the outskirts of a mysterious village called Nowhere, home to a friendly populace of deformed, mutated, just-left-of-normal citizens – and he has no memory of where or who he is. But just when Denis starts to regain his memories, his past catches up to him… literally. What at first seems like merely a bad trip quickly heightens into a drama of mistaken identities, small-town conspiracy, and high-stakes fantasy fulfilment.
Speaking about the series, Prince said “I’m incredibly happy to bring to market the most important comic about mutants to be published next year. How exciting that everyone can finally join me, Tyler, and Hilary in the middle of Nowhere.”
“You ever have one of those days where you stand in the morning, vaguely connected to the events that have, moments ago, ceased being the present, and watch the sun rise, then spend that day adrift without the anchor of sleep?” added Jenkins. “That’s KING OF NOWHERE—a stop motion story; one day to the next, one pose to the next. Each pose, each day, hopefully driving forward the life of your story, or the story of your life.”
KING OF NOWHERE #1 will be available for sale in March 2020, and you can feast your eyes on some preview artwork below.
