Preview: Kindness Comes At A Cost In ‘Dark Blood’ #2

by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios’ Dark Blood #2 drops this week from screenwriter LaToya Morgan, artists Walt Barna and Moisés Hidalgo, colorist A.H.G., and letterer AndWorld Design.

‘Does even the kindness of strangers come with a cost? Avery has adjusted to his post-WWII life in Alabama, but when an altercation with some local boys leaves him hurt, an unlikely bystander steps in. And while Carlisle, a white university doctor, not only offers Avery immediate first aid but free ongoing medical care… nothing is truly free, not even a stranger’s generosity.’

Featuring main cover art by artist Valentine De Landro and variant covers by Juni Ba and Taurin Clarke, Dark Blood #2 hits the stands on August 25, 2021.
