BOOM! Studios today revealed the first look at BUCKHEAD #2, the second 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 January 2022.
Toba’s first impression of quiet, small-town Buckhead has been shaken after he witnesses strange experiments, kidnappings, and more of the mysterious men in black suits. Following a lead, Josue and Toba discover the unexpected connections between the Elseverse game’s purpose and origins, and someone close to Toba.
BUCKHEAD #2 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 Shof Coker (Outcasts of Jupiter).
