BOOM! Studios to Spin a "Charming" Tale
I did not see this one coming! This morning a teaser photo dropped announcing a Sons of Anarchy comic book adaptation courtesy of BOOM! Studios. For those not familiar, get familiar! Sons of Anarchy is the smash hit FX drama about a gang of outlaw bikers and their exploits in the fictitious town of Charming, CA. The show has a rabid fan base (including my wife and I) and this is a huge get for BOOM! that has massive crossover appeal. Hell my wife who has no use what so ever for funny books has even said she wants to read it.
Kudos, BOOM!, you continue to rewrite the blueprint on how to run an independent comic book company. You go big and it pays off time and time again. People in the industry are always asking, "how do we bring in new readers?". Look no further than this!
Comic Book Resources (www.comicbookresources.com) has released exclusive news about BOOM! Studios forth coming Sons of Anarchy series. It will be a 6 issue mini series written by Christopher Golden and illustrated by Damian Couceiro with covers by RM Guerra (Scalped). It will debut alongside the series 6 and presumably penultimate season in September.
