It’s time for another first look from our friends at BOOM! Studios. Today we’re getting a new look at the first issue of A Vicious Circle, a prestige 3-issue original series from director, creator of Project Power, and one of the screenwriters behind the upcoming Batman sequel, Mattson Tomlin, with Lee Bermejo, iconic artist behind the smash hits Batman: Damned and Joker, and letterer Becca Carey (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) about two men cursed to roam across time and space in an unending cycle of violence and revenge, available in December 2022.
Shawn Thacker is a trained assassin from the future who seeks revenge on the only other man with his affliction—each life they take forces them both to involuntarily travel between vastly different past and future eras. Spanning from 22nd century Tokyo to 1950s New Orleans to the Cretaceous Era and beyond, the two mortal rivals are locked in a battle of wills that spans millions of years, all to alter the course of history.
With each time period, legendary artist Lee Bermejo adjusts his artistic style to pay homage to luminary comics artists and historical master painters, presented in a prestige, oversized format!
A Vicious Circle #1 features main cover art by series artist Bermejo, and variant covers by highly acclaimed illustrators Alex Garner (Batman), Jae Lee (Grim), and Rafael Grampá (BRZRKR). Here’s a look at the cover revealed so far:
