Know Your Station: Hunt the Rich in New Sci-Fi Horror Series from Boom! Studios
Boom! Studios has announced a brand-new sci-fi horror limited series titled Know Your Station. The new five-issue series will follow a serial murderer targeting the top 1% wealthiest of the population who have abandoned planet Earth and left the remaining citizens to fend for themselves. Will this special sanctuary they call home be enough to protect them from being the next victim?
The series is written by acclaimed writer Sarah Gailey with art by superstar artist Liana Kangas and editor Elizabeth Brei who unravel a mysterious tale of the consequences that catch up with the rich sooner than they could have anticipated. The premiere issue of the series will feature cover art by Kangas with variant covers by artists Jenny Frison, Becca Carey, Jenn Woodall, and many more.
Boom! Studios‘ description of the series reads:
“Death is the great leveler, even for the 1%… the wealthiest people in the solar system abandoned the Earth for a private sanctuary in space, leaving the rest of us to die amidst cataclysmic climate change. But the ultra-wealthy won’t be safe for long.
A murderer is on the loose, specifically targeting the super-rich! Soon, Elise, an employee of the Avulsion Corporation, is wrapped up in a deadly investigation, with each issue of this outrageously macabre series featuring a new, diabolically different kill!”
Gailey shares in the press release their excitement to weave this tale of corrupted capitalism that has reached past the confines of Earth, saying:
“I could not be more excited to explore new frontiers of wealth and violence in KNOW YOUR STATION, a series in which space is no longer the one place that hasn’t been corrupted by capitalism. Working with Liana Kangas to develop this series has been a source of incredible creative joy, and there couldn’t be a better home for this story than BOOM! I am just thrilled to get to work with Liana to shine a light on the gory inner workings of the 1%.”
Kangas shared their excitement to work with Gailey and praised the editorial team, saying:
“Getting to work with a phenomenal editorial team and favorite prose writer of mine, Sarah Gailey, is quite the foundation for my excitement to construct and create with them on this epically gruesome series. There’s something to be said about watching someone mysteriously murdering billionaires AND stick it to the man—but IN SPACE? Sign me up.”
Know Your Station #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally in December 2022. Check out the main cover along with variant covers by Woodall and Carey below:
