Based on the Unexplainable, Unbelievably True Paranormal Story, Available in October 2023
BOOM! Studios today revealed that HUNT FOR THE SKINWALKER #1, the first issue in the brand new single issue series inspired by one family’s confrontation with the unexplainable and terrifying, and what happened when they invited the largest scientific investigation of the paranormal to their ranch, has sold out at the distributor level ahead of release!
Working hand-in-hand with Dr. Colm Kelleher and veteran journalist George Knapp, and incorporating never-before-seen new revelations, writer Zac Thompson (Cable), artist Valeria Burzo (Castle Full of Blackbirds), colorist Jason Wordie, and letterer Joe Sabino, adapt the category-defying, godfather of modern day paranormal research non-fiction book, Hunt for the Skinwalker.
Unidentified flying objects. Animal mutilation. Terrifying otherworldly cryptids. Countless strange phenomena. For more than 50 years, a remote ranch in the Uinta Basin has been the most significant nexus for the paranormal. Inspired by one family’s confrontation with the unexplainable and terrifying… and what happened when they invited the largest scientific investigation of the paranormal to their ranch.
In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced HUNT FOR THE SKINWALKER #1 SECOND PRINTING, featuring brand new cover art by Martin Simmonds, available in stores October 4, 2023.
“Readers everywhere have spoken and it was no mystery why HUNT FOR THE SKINWALKER needed a second printing,” said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios. “The superstar team of Dr. Colm, George, Zac, Valeria, Jason, and Joe have shown a powerful light on this pivotal true tale of unexplainable phenomenon and with interest in the paranormal and extraterrestrial at an all time high, the search for the truth is only just beginning!”
