Discover the Greatest Conspiracy in American History from ‘Iron Man’ Writer
Christopher Cantwell in November 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 14, 2021) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at REGARDING THE MATTER OF OSWALD’S BODY #1, the premiere 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 November 2021.
The Kennedy assassination is a rat’s nest of conspiracy theories: mafia involvement, the second gunman, government cover-up… but the most important chapter of this sordid tale may just be the theory that the body buried at Oswald’s Rose Hill gravesite is not actually Lee Harvey himself.
Meet the ragtag group of “useful idiots” – a wannabe cowboy from Wisconsin, a Buddy Holly-idolizing (former) car thief, a world-weary Civil Rights activist ready for revolution, and a failed G-Man who still acts the part – who are unwittingly brought together to clean up the crime of the century, and specifically deal with the matter of Oswald’s body.
REGARDING THE MATTER OF OSWALD’S BODY #1 features main cover art by series artist Casalanguida, and variant cover art by acclaimed illustrators Ryan Sook (Blue & Gold) and Jacob Phillips (Criminal).
