An Exclusive First Look at Dark Blood #6

The Striking Final Issue of LaToya Morgan’s Series Dark Blood #6

Discover a Daring Rescue that May Cost Avery Everything in the Highly-Acclaimed Series this January 2022

BOOM! Studios has given us the honor at providing a first look at Dark Blood #6, the final issue of an evocative six-issue original series from screenwriter LaToya Morgan (AMC’s The Walking Dead, Into The Badlands), rising star artist Moisés Hidalgo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), colorists A.H.G. and Allison Hu, and letterer AndWorld Design. The series features a young man forging a brave new future for himself and his family while dealing with his past, and it’s available in January 2022.

When his family is held captive, Avery must use his newfound superpowers and military training to mount a daring rescue to save his wife and baby girl from the facility where everything began. But freeing his loved ones won’t be enough, and ensuring that no one else ever goes through what he has may cost him everything…

In writer LaToya Morgan’s own words “Dark Blood is a gripping, genre-bending sci-fi thriller inspired by real historical events. Our Hero, Avery Aldridge, is a young Black man with unexpected powers that lead him to people and places that I hope keeps the reader on the edge of their seats.”

Dark Blood #6 features main and variant cover art by acclaimed artist Valentine De Landro (Bitch Planet), and variant covers by illustrators Juni Ba (Excellence) and Tiffany Turrill (The Dreaming).
