December’s Black Badge #5 from Boom! Studios kicks off the second arc of the series from Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins. We’ll see scout vs. scout in this issue as teams from across the country are pitted against each other in a vicious battle royale that requires cunning and savagery. The Black Badges are already in trouble as they’ve got a fractured team and a potential traitor hiding in plain sight. They’ll have to find a way to work together if they hope to survive this deadly test of their skills.
Eric Harburn, Senior Editor at Boom! Studios says:
The greatest enemies are the ones closest to us – and when you’re a Black Badge, that means those enemies are also the deadliest. Matt and Tyler have been hinting at the layers of conspiracy woven through the everyday of the Black Badges, and now we’re going to see just what was really going on when the team thought they were fighting the good fight.
Black Badge #5 will feature a main cover by Matt Kindt and variant covers by Tyler Jenkins and David Lapham. It’s set for release on December 19th, 2018.
