Your First Look at STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #1 From BOOM! Studios
Discover the Truth in New Cold War Thriller from Jeff Loveness & Lisandro Estherren in October 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 30, 2019) – BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #1, the premiere issue of an all-new original series from Jeff Loveness (Judas) and artist Lisandro Estherren (Redneck, The Last Contract), a chilling and intense thriller about an American spy who encounters a terrifying inhuman threat at the heart of the Cold War.
It’s 1973, and Herring, a disillusioned American spy, has spent the entire Cold War infiltrating the inner circles of East German intelligence for a cause he barely believes in anymore. He’s seen everything and done anything his government asked, but his latest mission pits the brilliant embittered operative against an old Stasi foe and a strange force so powerful it threatens the very existence of humanity.
STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #1 features main cover art by illustrator Evan Cagle (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), as well as a variant cover by artist Tonči Zonjić (Skulldigger).
