Conspiracies Turn Deadly in REGARDING THE MATTER OF OSWALD’S BODY #2
Discover a Dangerous Kidnapping Plot in Highly Acclaimed Conspiracy Thriller this December 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 18, 2021) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at REGARDING THE MATTER OF OSWALD’S BODY #2, the next issue in the new five-issue comic book series that presents an off-kilter crime thriller set in the shadows of history’s greatest conspiracy, from Eisner Award-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell (Iron Man, The United States of Captain America), artist Luca Casalanguida (Lost Soldiers, Scout’s Honor), colorist Giada Marchisio, and letterer AndWorld Design, available in December 2021.
The day before JFK is assassinated, our four “useful idiots” have—against all odds—found a damn good lookalike candidate for Lee Harvey Oswald. Some poor bastard named Sonny Germs from Dallas. The only problem is now they have to kidnap… and kill him, which wasn’t part of the deal. As Lee makes his way downtown, the unlucky four find themselves in a chase into Dallas. What happens if they catch Sonny, and what does it mean for Lee’s plans on the fateful day, November 22, 1963?
REGARDING THE MATTER OF OSWALD’S BODY #2 features main cover art by series artist Casalanguida and variant cover art by acclaimed artist Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom).
