After selling out its first issue, BOOM! Studios has returned today with a preview of the upcoming Pine & Merrimac #2. The series, which hails from Eisner-award nominated writer Kyle Starks (I Hate This Place), fan-favorite artist and co-creator Fran Galán (The Amazing Spider-Man) and letterer Pat Brosseau (Batman: The Knight), drops its second issue in February 2024.
Linnea and Parker are settling into their new lives as small town detectives, but dark omens are forming on the horizon of this sleepy nook of the world. Their most promising lead unexpectedly evaporates, forcing the duo to embark on an ill-advised, undercover trip to Senator Island, where they discover a new clue to a mystery that’s bigger than anything they could have imagined. Just what have they gotten themselves into?
In our five-star review of issue #2 Neil said “A brilliant start to this new original series. A compelling detective story rich in character and drama alike. Thanks to this wonderful creative team I’m already in love with this world and its characters.”
Issue #2 features main and variant covers by Fran Galán, and variant covers by Rebeca Puebla (Conan the Barbarian), and Tula Lotay (Life is Strange: Forget-Me-Not). Get your first look at each of the covers below:
As usual, BOOM! has provided us with a series of preview pages from the issue which you can read below. As always though, we’ve got to warn you that if you haven’t read issue #1 then there will be spoilers ahead!
