BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at a surprise one-per-store Retailer Thank You variant cover by series artist Simone Di Meo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) for WE ONLY FIND THEM WHEN THEY’RE DEAD, a new sci-fi epic from Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk), Di Meo, with color assistance by Mariasara Miotti and letters by AndWorld Design, about one man’s unrelenting quest throughout space to discover the truth—no matter where it takes him. Available in stores September 2, 2020.
Meet Captain Malik and the crew of the Vihaan II, a spaceship that harvests resources from the giant corpses of alien gods found on the edge of human space. While other autopsy ships race to salvage the meat, minerals, and metals that sustain the human race, Malik sees an opportunity to finally break free from this system by being the first to find a living god. But Malik’s obsession with the gods will push his crew into danger at the darkest reaches of space—unless the rogue agent on their trail can stop them first…
