Briar and Damn Them All are getting second arcs this Fall. The news comes out of ComicsPRO 2023 during BOOM! Studios’ presentation on what’s to come for this landmark year.
Briar by Eisner Award-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell (Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body, Iron Man, Halt and Catch Fire), and rising star artist German Garcia (Ka-Zar: Lord of the Savage Land), will return for a new arc following the initial four-issue limited series. The new arc will continue the savage reimagining of the iconic fairy tale story that has captivated fans’ imaginations, exploring even more of the brutal fantasy world that time forgot.
Damn Them All by highly celebrated, Eisner-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (Hellblazer, Coda) and legendary artist Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead) will return for a new bloody, demon-filled arc. The initial six-issue run established Ellie “Bloody El” Hawthorne as an instant icon of the horror genre, and the new story arc will continue her journey to track down the 72 exiled devils of the Ars Goetia.
These fan-favorite ongoing series now join other proven franchises like James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Erdera’s Something Is Killing The Children, and Stephanie Phillips and Flaviano’s Grim, adding to a growing roster of unique, dark, female lead titles at BOOM! Studios.
