PINE AND MERRIMAC #1 Second Printing


Kyle Starks and Fran Galán bring a haunting detective story to BOOM! Studios in January 2024

BOOM! Studios today revealed that PINE AND MERRIMAC #1 from Eisner-award nominated writer Kyle Starks (I Hate This Place), renowned artist and co-creator Fran Galán (The Amazing Spider-Man) and letterer Pat Brosseau (Batman: The Knight), has sold out at the distributor level!

In Jamesport, on the corner of Pine and Merrimac sits a small, unassuming detective agency.

Former homicide detective, Linnea Kent–along with her husband, an ex-professional MMA fighter and the unofficial brawn to her brains–puts her former life behind her and moves far away from the violence and death of her job in the big city to open up a quiet little detective agency in a quiet little town.

At first, the simple cases this nook of the world has to offer were exactly what she was looking for. But there’s more to the quaint hamlet than Linnea could have possibly imagined, and something truly sinister pulling the strings…

In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced PINE AND MERRIMAC #1 SECOND PRINTING (NOV237591), featuring cover art by series artist and co-creator Fran Galán, available in stores January 24, 2024.
