BOOM! Studios has released a first look at the upcoming Black Badge #3, the next chapter of the comic by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins about an elite group of boy scouts used for black op missions by the government. Based on a true story. Probably.
The comic is hitting stores on October 17th, and in case you were wondering whether issue #3 will be a good jumping on point, you can look at the unlettered preview below, imagine what the characters must be talking about, and hopefully make your decision.
Said BOOM! Editor Eric Harburn in his record 1,000,000th press release quote:
Each issue of BLACK BADGE takes the team on dangerous missions around the world – and new recruit Willy is learning that sometimes playing by the rules and doing the right thing aren't always the same. Matt, Tyler, Hilary, and Jim continue to up the ante each month, and this issue has huge ramifications for life as the Badges know it.
Check out the preview below.
Meet the Black Badges, a top-secret, elite branch of boy scouts tasked by the government to take on covert missions that no adult ever could.
Available in October, the issue sends the Black Badge team on a dangerous extraction mission in Pakistan, where they're forced to see the terrible consequences of war and the people who get lost in the battle of nations. This issue features a main cover by Matt Kindt, along with a variant by Tyler Jenkins.
