BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at Briar #3, the next issue of the brand new four-issue limited comic book series from Eisner Award-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell (Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body, Iron Man, Halt and Catch Fire), rising star artist Germán García (Ka-Zar: Lord of the Savage Land), colorist Matheus Lopes (Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow), and letterer AndWorld Design (The Many Deaths of Laila Starr) that reimagines the classic fairy tale as an epic dark fantasy adventure, available February 2023.
What if the one meant to protect you–more than anyone else–became the one that betrayed you? Briar unfortunately learns the answer, burdened beyond belief with the crushing prophecy that she’s connected to, and decides to make the future her own with a promise of vengeance. But while Briar wrestles with her new reality, Spider, her blue-skinned companion, harbors a secret of shocking significance…
Briar #3 features main cover art by series artist García, and variant cover art by superstar artists Yanick Paquette (The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country) with colors by Lopes, Maria Llovet (Faithless), and Raúl Allén (Dune: The Graphic Novel).
