A Vicious Circle: Traverse Time in the New Limited Series Coming from Boom! Studios
Boom! Studios has announced a brand-new limited series titled A Vicious Circle. The new three-issue limited series will follow Shawn Thacker, a trained assassin that will traverse time in a battle spanning different eras and millions of years. The series is written by director and screenwriter Mattson Tomlin with art by the superstar artist behind Batman: Damned, Lee Bermejo. The premiere issue will feature cover art by Bermejo with variant covers by artist Alex Garner, Jae Lee, Rafael Grampá, and more.
Boom! Studios’ description of A Vicious Circle reads:
“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.”
Tomlin shared praise for Bermejo’s talent, saying:
“Lee Bermejo is an artist of the highest caliber and getting to partner with him as we push each other into the vortex of involuntary time travel has been a uniquely satisfying experience. I’m very excited for you to join us on this journey that unpacks the good, the evil, and the vicious meaning of life.”
Bermejo also shares that the series has been a welcome challenge, saying:
“A VICIOUS CIRCLE is a passion project and the most deliciously challenging thing I’ve done in my career thus far. This is thanks to the collaboration with Mattson, whose gift of being able to bring intimacy and subtle nuance to epic genre concepts helps make them feel personal as much as bombastic.
It’s also an opportunity for us to embrace and play with what makes the medium of sequential art so unique and give readers a tailored, stylistic experience to every sequence.”
A Vicious Circle #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally in December 2022. Check out the preview below:
