Potential Madness & Secret Origins in Your First Look at BRIAR #6

The new chapter in the reimagined Sleeping Beauty story continues in June!

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 23, 2024) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at BRIAR #6, the next issue of returning smash hit, a dark retelling of Sleeping Beauty from Eisner Award-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell (Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body, Halt and Catch Fire), rising-star artist Alex Lins (Hellcat, Crypt of Shadows), colorist Luis NCT with Mar Silvestre, and letterer AndWorld Design. Discover the next chapter of the unforgettable dark fantasy in June 2024.

In the wake of tragic devastation, Briar, Spider, and company wrestle with guilt as cold and bleak as the snow-coated mountains they make their way through. Plagued by potential madness, fear of Briar’s origins and connections to their enemy, and magic gone awry, the party will find themselves in even more danger soon enough…

BRIAR #6 features main cover art by series artist Alex Lins, and variant cover art by acclaimed artists Dani Pendergast (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), Ariel Olivetti (BRZRKR), and DANI (Coffin Bound) with colors by Brad Simpson.
