SPECS #1 First Look

Your First Look at Supernatural Horror Series SPECS #1

Discover a Brand New Original Horror Series From Highly Acclaimed All Star Creators in November 2022

BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at SPECS #1, the premiere issue of the mysterious new series from highly acclaimed writer David M. Booher (Canto, All-New Firefly), artist Chris Shehan (House of Slaughter), colorist Roman Stevens (Batman Fortnite), and Jim Campbell (Giant Days), about a group of misfit teens who mail-order a pair of novelty glasses, and realize they’ve received much more than they bargained for, in stores November 2022.  

All that high school students Kenny and Ted want is to not feel like outcasts in their small town in Ohio. But their world is turned upside down when the Magic Specs they ordered unlock a world of unforeseen possibilities. . . and consequences. Their fun starts out innocent enough, but when they wish that their bully would disappear, things take a cursed turn, with far darker results than they thought possible…

SPECS #1 features main cover art by highly acclaimed artist Skylar Patridge (Trial of the Amazons), and variant covers by fan-favorite illustrators Kevin Wada (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Chris Shehan (House of Slaughter), and David Talaski (Nightwing).
