BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at Specs #3, the next issue of the mysterious new series from highly acclaimed writer David M. Booher (Canto, All-New Firefly), artist Chris Shehan (House of Slaughter), colorist Roman Stevens (Batman Fortnite), and letterer Jim Campbell (Giant Days), about a pair of misfit teens who mail-order a pair of novelty glasses, and realize they’ve received much more than they bargained for, in stores January 2023.
Ted is behind bars at the police station after his wrongful arrest, but he’s unfortunately far from alone, as an angry mob blames him for Skunk’s “murder.” Kenny is desperate to help, relentlessly searching for the company that created the Magic Specs. Will a Hail Mary wish be enough to get Ted off the hook and set things right, or will it just drag them deeper into trouble?
Specs #3 features main cover art by highly acclaimed artist Skylar Patridge (Trial of the Amazons) and variant cover by fan-favorite illustrator David Talaski (Nightwing).
