BOOM! Studios has announced that LaToya Morgan and Walt Barna are teaming for Dark Blood, a six-issue mini-series about a young man forging a brave new future for himself and his family while dealing with his past.
Alabama, 1955. Avery Aldridge was a decorated soldier during World War II; now he’s just an ordinary young Black man busy providing for his wife and daughter. But the wounds of the past have a way of coming back, and he’ll soon discover that he is anything but ordinary. After a run-in awakens strange new abilities, Avery’s about to become more powerful than he could have ever dared to dream… in a country and society that never wanted him to have any power.
“DARK BLOOD is a thrilling, genre-bending story that combines twisty sci-fi and historical action, incredible feats of bravery and deep familial love,” said Morgan in a press release from BOOM! Studios. “I could not be more grateful for my creative partners at BOOM! who believed in this passion project from the start. I’m so excited for readers to take t
his wild ride with these characters I love so much.”
Dark Blood #1 is scheduled to arrive in July 2021.
