BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #2, the newest issue of an all-new original series from Jeff Loveness (Judas) and artist Lisandro Estherren (Redneck, The Last Contract), a chilling and intense thriller about an American spy who encounters a terrifying inhuman threat at the heart of the Cold War.
Herring has infiltrated the underground bunker where the mysterious force is being held, but his cover immediately comes under threat with the appearance of his longtime foe, Stasi spycatcher Inspektor Keiner. When the fatal influence of the alien force proves too powerful to contain, the bunker is locked down and the American spy is suddenly trapped in a base full of Russians and Germans who are quickly losing their minds to the strange light. With the double threat of the suspicious spymaster and the alien’s mind-bending force, will Herring survive this deadly trap?
STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #2 features main cover art by illustrator Evan Cagle (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), as well as a variant cover by artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta (Vision).
