BOOM! Studios has today unveiled our first look at Origins #2, the second issue from writer Clay McLeod Chapman and artist Jakub Rebelka. Issue #1 hit shelves last week, and was met with critical acclaim — our own Ronnie Gorham said it “sets the stage for the battle to rebuild humanity. It’s mysterious, fun, and the world-building feels like we haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s to come. It’s a great sci-fi tale with a lot of potential.”
Issue #2 will be available for sale on December 9, 2020.
Check out the preview, as well as BOOM! Studios’ full press release, below:
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 9, 2020) – BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at ORIGINS #2, the next issue in the limited series by acclaimed writer Clay McLeod Chapman (Absolute Carnage: Separation Anxiety), illustrator Jakub Rebelka (Judas), colorist Patricio Delpeche (Strange Skies Over East Berlin), and letterer Jim Campbell (Alienated), that presents a stunning view of a future where humanity’s last hope may be the person who brought about its destruction, available in December 2020.
Nowhere is safe on the planet that David helped destroy, including the secret hideout where he was brought back to life as the last living human. When enemy AI attacks, David and his robot guardian, Chloe, must face an impossible mission in search of answers. It’s a dangerous journey but humanity’s only hope lies in the father of robotics going back to where it all started – no matter the cost.
