BOOM! Studios Announces ‘Eat The Rich’ For August 2021
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios has announced a chilling new original five-issue comic book series Eat The Rich for August 2021.
Written by Sarah Gailey, with art by Pius Bak, colors by Roman Titov, and letters by Cardinal Rae, the series is about the unspeakable horrors lying in wait within the perfect façade of the idyllic lives of the one percent, available in August 2021.
‘Welcome to Crestfall Bluffs! With law school and her whole life ahead of her, Joey plans to spend the summer with her boyfriend Astor in his seemingly perfect hometown.
It’s a chance to finally meet his family and childhood friends, all while enjoying a vacation where every need is attended to. But beneath the affluent perfection lies a dark, deadly rot… will Joey discover the truth before it’s too late, and even if she does, can she survive to tell the tale?’
“Eat The Rich is about class inequality and the systems that allow the wealthy to feed on vulnerable people. It’s also a feverish love letter to the soapy primetime dramas I hold dear,” said Gailey. “This has been years in the making, and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world. Welcome to Crestfall Bluffs, friends. I hope you’re hungry.”
“I’m very excited to be working on EAT THE RICH. Sarah is a brilliant writer and I’m having a lot of fun turning their wonderful narrative and ideas into drawings,” added Bak. “I’m also very happy to have talented colorist Roman Titov and letterer Cardinal Rae on the team, as well as the friendliest editors from BOOM! Studios, working on this series.”
Eat The Rich #1 features main cover art by Kevin Tong and variant covers by Becca Carey, Jenny Frison, and Leila del Duca and will be available for sale in August 2021.
