Thursday's Headlines | Boom! Studios Eve #1 Sells Out

The press release follows:

Media Release — BOOM! Studios today revealed that EVE #1, the first issue in the brand new five-issue original series from award-winning author Victor LaValle (Victor LaValle’s Destroyer) and rising star artist Jo Mi-Gyeong (Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance), with colorist Brittany Peer and letterer AndWorld Design, about a dangerous journey across a future dystopian America to save the world, has sold out at the distributor level! 

In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced EVE #1 SECOND PRINTING, featuring brand new cover art by series artist Jo Mi-Gyeong, will be available in stores June 9, 2021.

When the ice caps melted, most of humanity was lost to the hidden disease that was released. Now, a mysterious girl named Eve has awoken in secret and must deal with a world that’s nothing like the virtual reality she was raised in. In order to save her real father, Eve must embark on a deadly quest across the country, but she has no idea of the threats that await her — or the price she will pay to restore life to a dying planet…

“We are so incredibly impressed with the unique world Victor and Jo have created in EVE,” said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios. “It should come as no surprise that this first issue needed another printing to give even more readers a chance to discover this environmental Afrofuturist epic!”
