This May, BOOM! Studios is honored to be the home of the first original comic series created and written by Clive Barker himself - CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT. With interior art by Haemi Jang (HELLRAISER: THE ROAD BELOW) and covers by illustrator Goni Montes, the twelve issue comic event is a bold new exploration of religious themes as only Barker can deliver.
Julian Demond, captain of industry, has left behind everything to begin a walkabout -- he believes he’s on a mission from God. While in the wasteland, he comes across a figure unlike any other, who calls himself Wick...and claims to be God. Their journey will span the globe, as neither man merely wants to make a mark on the world, but a scar. Created by Clive Barker as original comic book concept and co-written by Barker with HELLRAISER writing partner Mark Miller, CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT marks the first time the master of horror has created and written an original comic book series.
“Next Testament is a project that is near and dear to our hearts. It's a story that has been years in the making and we're thrilled that it's found a home with Boom! Studios," commented Miller, "We promise you something the likes of which you've never seen. Prepare yourselves for a horrific fantasy of Biblical proportions.”
CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT #1 will arrive in stores on May 29th with a cover by illustrator Goni Montes and carry a retail price of $3.99. The premier issue will also feature a retailer incentive cover by Ben Oliver (BATWING) and an ultra-rare incentive cover painted and signed by Clive Barker himself!

This May, BOOM! Studios proudly launches SUICIDE RISK, the first original ongoing series from an independent publisher by Eisner Award-nominated author Mike Carey (X-MEN, THE UNWRITTEN). The highly anticipated series will feature interiors by artist Elena Casagrande (HULK, HACK/SLASH).Super-powered people are inexplicably rising from the streets and there's a big problem: Too many supervillains, not enough superheroes. Heroes are dying, and cops are dying twofold. Humanity is under-powered and good people are suffering untold tragedies trying to stem the flow. Beat cop Leo Winters is one of those struggling to make a difference. And the answer just might come in the form of two lowlifes with a dark secret. SUICIDE RISK is a high octane, mind-bending series created by one of the industry's greatest storytellers.
“SUICIDE RISK is a story set against the backdrop of the world's first ever superpower activations - a fast-spreading trend with a single moving source and a million unintended consequences,” explained Mike Carey. “When cop Leo Winters goes looking for a man and a woman who are literally selling superpowers on the street, he triggers a series of events which will change his life and the lives of those he loves forever - and potentially, end the world. What I love about writing this book (I mean, besides working with Elena) is that it's outside of any existing continuity. We can make our own rules and then play out the consequences all the way.”
SUICIDE RISK #1 will arrive in stores on May 1st with with a cover by Tommy Lee Edwards (MARVEL 1985, TURF) and a retail price of $3.99
