BOOM! Studios’ ‘Briar’ returns May 2024

In the wake of slaying Deadcrawl, Grendrid’s deadly henchman, Briar Rose and her companions have become quite the band of bounty hunters…

BOOM! Studios has revealed Christopher Cantwell and Alex Lins will release the next chapter of Briar, issue #5, on May 15.

“Briar focuses on people who have fallen out of the grander story, or feel they have no place in it at all. This book is what happens when the entire fairy tale comes apart, and only a few, fringe characters are left to pick up the pieces, having to forge their own radical destinies instead of being handed happy endings,” said writer Christopher Cantwell.

So what’s Briar #5 about?

In the wake of slaying Deadcrawl, Grendrid’s deadly henchman, Briar Rose and her companions have become quite the band of bounty hunters with a reputation for murder and mayhem that belies their chivalrous intentions. But overzealous local authorities are not the only foes Briar will face, as Spider hatches a plan that will get them closer than ever to Briar’s malevolent fairy godmother–to the castle of Grendrid herself!

“I cannot overstate how thrilled I am that Briar is back for its next chapter,” added series editor Allyson Gronowitz. “Chris is back with a jaw-dropping new arc, and the talented Alex Lins is joining us for Briar’s second outing. I couldn’t be happier!”

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 21, 2024) – The smash hit, dark retelling of Sleeping Beauty returns! Eisner Award-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell (Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body, Halt and Catch Fire) is joined by rising-star artist Alex Lins (Hellcat, Crypt of Shadows) for the next chapter of the unforgettable dark fantasy BRIAR!

In the wake of slaying Deadcrawl, Grendrid’s deadly henchman, Briar Rose and her companions have become quite the band of bounty hunters with a reputation for murder and mayhem that belies their chivalrous intentions. But overzealous local authorities are not the only foes Briar will face, as Spider hatches a plan that will get them closer than ever to Briar’s malevolent fairy godmother–to the castle of Grendrid herself!

Briar focuses on people who have fallen out of the grander story, or feel they have no place in it at all. This book is what happens when the entire fairy tale comes apart, and only a few, fringe characters are left to pick up the pieces, having to forge their own radical destinies instead of being handed happy endings,” said writer Christopher Cantwell.

Briar is for anyone with heart: it is visceral, it is poetic, and the protagonists go much deeper than most heroes do,” said series artist Alex Lins.

“I cannot overstate how thrilled I am that Briar is back for its next chapter,” added series editor Allyson Gronowitz. “Chris is back with a jaw-dropping new arc, and the talented Alex Lins is joining us for Briar’s second outing. I couldn’t be happier!”

BRIAR #5 will be available in comic shops May 15, 2024. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including Kindle, iBooks, and Google Play.
