Discover the Eisner-Nominated Series by Luc Jacamon and Matz Before the Netflix Film from Acclaimed Director David Fincher in June 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (June 15, 2022) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at THE KILLER: AFFAIRS OF THE STATE #5, the next issue in the return of the Eisner Award-nominated series by acclaimed French artist Luc Jacamon and writer Matz (The Black Dahlia), bringing readers into the Killer’s high-stakes world of espionage and contract killing before the upcoming Netflix film directed by David Fincher (The Social Network), written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en), and starring Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class).
Mayor Marchand has blood on his hands, but that’s not going to stop him from using the recent chaos for his own political gain. While Killer remains as detached as ever over this new development, only concerned about new clients, the same can’t be said for Nicolas. But when an organization with connections to the mayor and religious extremists emerges, the two are faced with one of their most dangerous assignments yet…
THE KILLER: AFFAIRS OF THE STATE #5 features all-new main cover art by series artist and global star illustrator Jacamon, and variant covers by highly acclaimed artists Becca Carey (Eat the Rich) and Tonči Zonjić (Lobster Johnson).
