WE ONLY FIND THEM WHEN THEY’RE DEAD a new original comic book series from Boom Studios unites Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk) and Simone Di Meo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) this September.
This explosive series follows Captain Malik and his unrelenting quest throughout space to discover the truth—no matter where it takes him. Along with his crew, he harvests resources from the giant corpses of alien gods found on the edge of human space. While other autopsy ships race to salvage the meat, minerals, and metals that sustain the human race, Malik sees an opportunity to finally break free from this system by being the first to find a living god. But Malik’s obsession with the gods will push his crew into danger at the darkest reaches of space—unless the rogue agent on their trail can stop them first…
Best known for his work for Marvel, including writing Immortal Hulk, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ultimates, Loki: Agent of Asgard, Avengers: No Surrender, Al Ewing makes his Boom! Studios debut with his creator-owned series.
In a press release from Boom!, Ewing gave some insight as to the origin of the series.
“WE ONLY FIND THEM WHEN THEY’RE DEAD is a concept I’ve been brewing for some years now, something that merges a few of my favorite things – high-concept action, world-building, quests for the meaning behind existence and heavily metaphorical science fiction – and uses them to create a universe we’re building out into something truly vast, rich and strange. No matter which parts of my work you’ve enjoyed before, there’ll be something here for you to love.”
Simone Di Meo, the Italian artist on the series, whose previous works include Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fro BOOM! Studios, along with high profile projects at Marvel Entertainment such as Venom, Old Man Logan, and Immortal Hulk: The Best Defense, had this to say about his involvement.
“I had been waiting for years to work on my own sci-fi series, and Al wrote a story so intense that I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Sci-fi, passion, mystery, and giant gods make these pages an absolute blast to draw.”
Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios also said about the project in the same press release.
“Al and Simone are delivering career-best work on this project — and that’s saying something. Visceral, challenging, experimental, contemplative… Get ready for a science-fiction epic unlike any other, that seeks to answer why WE ONLY FIND THEM WHEN THEY’RE DEAD.”
The inaugural issue features main cover art by series artist Di Meo, as well as variant covers by Toni Infante (Champions), Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom), Matias Bergara (Coda) and more.
WE ONLY FIND THEM WHEN THEY’RE DEAD #1 will be available in September 2020 exclusively at local comic book shops or the BOOM! Studios website.
Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
Due to the ongoing impact of the current global health crisis, the final release schedule of this series is subject to change.
