BOOM! Studios has released the first look at DARK BLOOD #3 containing the story Avery Aldridge is an ordinary young Black man. A decorated World War II veteran, Avery provides for his wife and daughter, who soon discovers he is anything but ordinary…
Set in Alabama, 1955, the story from screenwriter LaToya Morgan (AMC’s The Walking Dead, Into The Badlands), rising star artist Moisés Hidalgo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), colorist A.H.G., and letterer AndWorld Design, finds Avery about to become more powerful than he could have ever dared to dream… in a country and society that never wanted him to have any power.
After meeting Carlisle, a white university doctor, who not only offers Avery immediate first aid but free ongoing medical care… nothing is truly free, not even a stranger’s kindness. At first, Dr. Carlisle’s generous offer to treat Avery’s chronic pain and injuries seems like a godsend, but the “magic bullet” cure he offers comes with an excruciating administration via spinal tap… and unexpected side effects. When those manifest in seemingly impossible ways that terrify his family, Avery rushes back to the doctor for additional help, but will the second treatment truly work or only bring back memories of the war best kept in Avery’s past?
But when is the cure worse than the disease?
DARK BLOOD #3 features main cover art by acclaimed artist Valentine De Landro (Bitch Planet) and variant covers by illustrators Juni Ba (Excellence) and Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom).
