Winter is Coming at BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios Announces Two New Releases for December 2015

BOOM! Studios is getting in the holiday spirit a little early with two new releases announced this week. One is a one-shot, the other a mini-series from BOOM! Box and the main BOOM! Studios imprint respectively.

First up, from BOOM! Box, we find the treat of MUNCHKIN: DECK THE DUNGEONS from BOOM! Box, a new one-shot in the world of the popular card game turned comic book.

If you are a fan of the card game (as well you should be - it's a lot of fun!), then you are in for a holiday treat with this one-shot by superstar writer KATIE COOK and artist MIKE LUCKAS! It's a 48 page retelling of Charles' Dickens A Christmas Carol Munchkin style! Check out the official solicitation below:

What’s to Love: There’s nothing better than getting a ton of loot during the holidays, and we can always count on Spyke and Flower to make the Yuletide a little more interesting!

What It Is: Charles Dickens is turning in his grave as Katie Cook (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic) and Mike Luckas (Skull Kickers) put a Munchkin-sized spin on A Christmas Carol. Tour the Dungeons of Past, Present, and Future! No one learns anything, obviously, except to pillage, steal and stab others in the back in the spirit of Christmas.

What’s to Love: With books like Hit and Day Men in our library, you can tell we absolutely love noir stories, and the more unconventional, the better! Critically acclaimed writer Ollie Masters (The Kitchen) and artist Tyler Jenkins (Peter Panzerfaust) have crafted a tense noir story in the tradition of Criminal, Scalped, and 100 Bullets, set in the bleak, snow-covered landscape of Alaska, a perfect setting to highlight the cold nature of crime.

What It Is: What happens when you discover your dad isn’t the man you thought he was? For high school teen Teddy, life in a sleepy suburb in Alaska turns upside-down when he innocently posts a photo of his dad on Facebook, only to learn he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program. A man seeking revenge invades their town, and soon FBI agents arrive, too. But what if his dad’s reasons for going into the program aren’t as innocent as he says?
