Discover the Hopeless Flight from a Hired Killer in the Conclusion
to the JFK Era Thriller in March 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (March 7, 2022) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at REGARDING THE MATTER OF OSWALD’S BODY #5, the final 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 March 2022.
Our cast arrives in Terlingua, Texas, looking to flee to Mexico, all the while wondering if they’ve been the good guys in all this, doing their patriotic duty and whether they should stay and fight after all. But with Frank and a hired killer to deal with, will there be any second chances? And just who is the shadowed figure overlooking Oswald’s exhumation in 1981?
REGARDING THE MATTER OF OSWALD’S BODY #5 features main cover art by series artist Casalanguida and Incentive Variant cover art by acclaimed artist E.M. Gist (Moon Knight).
