LOS ANGELES, CA (May 26, 2023) – BOOM! Studios collects Eisner-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell (Everything, Doctor Doom, Halt and Catch Fire) and artist German Garcia’s (Ka-Zar: Lord of the Savage Land) dark, twisted take on Sleeping Beauty in BRIAR VOLUME ONE, with a BOOM! Studios Store Exclusive available now featuring an exclusive cover by Junggeun Yoon!
What if Sleeping Beauty never got her happily ever after… and had to save herself instead? One-hundred years after Briar Rose first fell into her slumber, the sleeper has now become the sleepwalker, and she must face a brutal, bleak world ruled by a tyrant from her past. Burdened by prophecy and betrayal, it will take everything Briar and her band of misfits have to survive the wasteland where magic went to die. As they journey through a land of untold terrors, Briar nurtures a burning pledge of vengeance. But will it be enough to bring some semblance of a happy ending to the land… and her heart?
