by Brendan M. Allen

BOOM! Studios revealed a first look at The Expanse #1, a new four-issue limited comic book series from writer Corinna Bechko, artist Alejandro Aragon, colorist Francesco Segala and letterer Ed Dukeshire

The series takes place between Season Four and the upcoming fifth season of the Amazon Prime Video television series The Expanse.  Print copies of The Expanse #1, featuring main cover art by W. Scott Forbes, as well as variant cover art by Tigh Walker and Lorenzo de Felici, will hit spinner racks December 16, 2020.

‘Chrisjen Avasarala, the longtime Secretary-General of the United Nations, finds herself dealing with the outcome of the tumultuous elections for her position and far from Earth but not its politics.

When Bobbie Draper – a former Martian marine – brings Avasarala intel on an intergalactic black market weapons ring, Avasarala sees a chance to reclaim her political position through a clandestine operation. But as Draper digs deeper into this secret cabal, she soon realizes the threat they pose is far larger – and closer to home – than either of them ever imagined.’

Check out some of the variant covers and a few pages of interior art below.
