James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal) has taken readers deep into an otherworldly forest with The Woods and to the very end of the world with Memetic. This April, he teams up with his Thrillbent partner Noah J. Yuenkel (The House in the Wall) and artist Matthew Fox (Long Walk to Valhalla) for a story of growing up and dealing with aliens in the debut of UFOlogy from award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios.
“Character is at the heart of all of James’s stories,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Whether they’re on a strange planet or in rural Wisconsin, he’s proven he’s one of the best in the business when it comes to character-driven stories with rich concepts. This April he’s teaming up with Noah Yuenkel to do it again. They’re joined by the incredibly talented artist Matthew Fox, for a story that feels like an heir to sci-fi thrillers like Super 8 and The X-Files.”
Becky Finch never wanted to be special. She just wanted to be a normal high school student in the small Midwestern town of Mukawgee. Malcolm Chamber wanted something more. A destiny. An answer from the stars. When Becky is marked by an alien’s touch, she’ll stumble into a mystery she never wanted. A mystery that almost ripped apart both their parents’ lives 12 years ago. She’ll need the help of her eccentric young classmate, Malcolm, as she finds the power within herself to uncover the truth.
UFOlogy #1 arrives in comic shops on April 1st with a main cover by series artist Matthew Fox. Also available in a limited quantity are a Jackpot Variant by Alison Sampson (Genesis), a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Frazer Irving (Eternal), and a retailer incentive cover by Paul Maybury (Sovereign).
