What would you sacrifice for freedom? This February, characters in BOOM! Studios’ new series Cluster are asked just that—and don’t have much of a choice.
Created by the team behind the latest run on BOOM!’s Sons of Anarchy comic series, writer Ed Brisson (The Field, Sheltered) and artist Damian Couceiro (Planet of the Apes) tell a story set in a distant future where humans have discovered life on other planets. Faced with a shortage of manpower, and in order to protect their colonies across the galaxy from other species, Earth’s government has resorted to offering prisoners a chance to shorten their long sentences in exchange for serving as an interstellar soldier. More and more soldiers are needed as wars continue, so small crimes are met with long-term punishments. But when a group of prisoners-turned-soldiers are marooned on enemy soil, they’ll need to work together to survive and uncover the truth behind Earth’s role in deep space.
Cluster #1 arrives in comic shops on February 4th with a main cover by James Stokoe (Wonton Soup, Orc Stain) and a 1-in-99 “Jackpot” variant cover by Simon Roy (Prophet) for the price of $3.99
