Following on from the fact that the first issue of Grass Kings, a new series by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins from Boom! Studios, sold out on its release day, Boom has released a special FOC variant cover for Grass Kings #2 to give retailers an added chance to get behind the second issue. And of course, that means more variants for fans to choose from and collect. Final orders for this cover and for issue #2 is today, March 20th.

The series is an especially appealing one with an all-star team up that explores life in an isolated community and focuses on the drama inherent in family relationships. It focuses on the lives of three brothers who rule a realm of trailer parks that’s a “beacon for the hopeless, the lost, and the desperate poor seeking a promised land”. Things get shaken up when one brother takes in a young woman, and the conflict starts there.

Boom has also announced the first collection of Grass Kings will not be released until February 2018 but that the collection will include the first five issues of Grass Kings in an oversized, premium hardcover similar to Grant Morrison and Dan Mora’s Klaus. The collection will carry a suggested retail price of $29.99.
Some extra information for retailers interested in ordering this cover:
The issue will hit comic book shops on April 12. Retailers who meet the minimum order requirement for the variant will receive three Grass Kings crown enamel pins shipping with issue #3. Additionally, retailers who maintain their orders on issue #1 for issue #2 will be eligible for returnability and be listed in issue #3 as the “Kings of Retail.”
