BOOM! Studios today revealed the first look at BUCKHEAD #3, the third of a five-issue limited series from rising star author Shobo (Outcasts of Jupiter), artist George Kambadais (The Black Ghost), and letterer Jim Campbell (Jim Henson’s Storyteller) about a Nigerian immigrant family meeting strange new people and dealing with unusual experiences in the mysterious town of Buckhead, USA. Available in February 2022.
After Toba is saved from the men in black by the mysterious girl, he notices that she is the only one in town without the mind-controlling tattoo. Together they start piecing together what’s really going on in Buckhead and how it’s all connected to an ancient being of chaos. But to free everyone’s parents and save Buckhead, they must enter the Elseverse, using a device created by Toba’s mom, as long as they can get past the men in black first…
BUCKHEAD #3 features main cover art by series artist Kambadais, as well as a video game homage variant cover by Simangaliso Sibaya (Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire) with colors by Natalia Nesterenko, and variant cover art by Qistina Khalidah (The Magicians).
