Your First Look at the Secrets of THE EXPANSE #1 From BOOM! Studios
This December Discover a Brand New Limited Comic Book Series Set in the Universe of the Hit Amazon Original Television Series
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 27, 2020) – BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at THE EXPANSE #1, the premiere issue of a new four-issue limited comic book series from writer Corinna Bechko (Green Lantern: Earth One), artist Alejandro Aragon (Resonant), colorist Francesco Segala (Firefly) and letterer Ed Dukeshire (Once & Future), which is set between Season 4 and the upcoming fifth season of the Amazon Prime Video hit television series, The Expanse, available in comic shops December 16, 2020.
The series picks up with Chrisjen Avasarala at the end of the television show’s fourth season. The longtime Secretary-General of the United Nations finds herself dealing with the outcome of the tumultuous elections for her position and far from Earth but not its politics. When Bobbie Draper – a former Martian marine – brings Avasarala intel on an intergalactic black market weapons ring, Avasarala sees a chance to reclaim her political position through a clandestine operation. But as Draper digs deeper into this secret cabal, she soon realizes the threat they pose is far larger – and closer to home – than either of them ever imagined.
The first four seasons of The Expanse television show are available to watch now on Prime Video. The show is financed and produced by Alcon Television Group, a division of Alcon Entertainment.
