Bury the Lede from Boom! Studios is set for release in October 2019. We’ve already seen an advanced preview of the original graphic novel from writer Gaby Dunn, artist Claire Roe, and colorist Miquel Merto. Now the publisher has shared even more interiors for us to pour over.
The comic is based on Dunn’s own experiences as a young reporter at The Boston Globe. This story follows a fictional reporter as her search for truth leads her face-to-face with a potential killer. Here’s how the publisher describes it:
Cub reporter Madison Jackson is young, scrappy, and hungry to prove that she deserves her coveted college internship at the premier newspaper in town, The Boston Lede, where she dreams of a career-making headline. So when her police scanner mentions a brutal murder tied to a prominent Boston family, Madison races to the crime scene, looking for the scoop of the century.
What she finds instead is the woman who’ll change her life forever: Dahlia Kennedy, a celebrity socialite covered in blood and the prime suspect in the murder of her husband and child. When Madison is the only person Dahlia will speak to, everything rides on the untested shoulders of this young journalist who sinks ever deeper into the dark, twisted landscape of the city’s hidden circles of crime, corruption, and privilege in order to discover the truth.
Bury the Lede will be available at your local comic shop on October 2nd, 2019 and at book stores and Amazon on October 8th, 2019.
