JEFF LEMIRE Brings New Ongoing Series to BOOM! STUDIOS  

Author: Newsroom

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 10, 2024) – Jeff Lemire, the Eisner Award-winning and New York Times bestselling writer and artist behind critically and commercially acclaimed series such as Sweet Tooth, Essex County, Black Hammer, and Ascender, brings his storytelling prowess for the first time to BOOM! Studios this Fall with an as-of-yet unannounced new series.

“This series is literally a dream come true for me,” said Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief of BOOM! Studios. “Jeff Lemire is one of my all-time favorite creators and it’s a career highlight to have him bring his newest original creation to our publishing house. This will be a true ongoing series in the grand tradition of Jeff’s masterpiece Sweet Tooth. The work Jeff is producing right now is astounding. We look forward to sharing this series with the world and adding it to Jeff’s pantheon of award-winning books.”

The series, both written and illustrated by Lemire himself, will launch Fall 2024 as an ongoing series for the Los Angeles-based publisher.

“For a while now I have felt like the “ongoing series” in comics is a dying breed,” said award-winning and bestselling author Jeff Lemire. “I’m guilty of this myself, having put out a lot of shorter projects over the last several years. But as both a comics fan, and a creator, I have been craving longer format stories again. Series like the classic Vertigo monthlies that would drive me to the comic shops every week when I was younger.

“All of this has led me to develop a new book that reflects this desire to get back to a true ongoing series. This project will be my longest self-drawn book since I finished Sweet Tooth ten years ago.  I’ll be writing and drawing the book myself, and I am very excited to make this my first project with BOOM! As a publisher, they are committed to telling this entire, long-form story that will allow me, readers, and retailers a chance to really invest in a new world, and new characters, knowing new chapters will be published every month with a real long-term plan in mind. I can’t wait to share more details in the coming months. But for now, back to the drawing board!”

“We are beyond thrilled to welcome Jeff Lemire to BOOM! Studios. Few creators can so consistently balance poignant, award-winning tales with exceptionally commercial bestsellers in their oeuvre and his library has become essential reading for fans of graphic fiction around the world,” said Filip Sablik, President of Publishing and Marketing for BOOM! Studios. “When we announce details of this must-read project, it will be evident Jeff has created something that checks all three of those boxes.”

“Jeff is a living legend and luminary of our medium, and someone whose work I have admired my entire career,” said Eric Harburn, editor. “This new project is a culmination of everything you love about his unparalleled body of work, and I’m thrilled for it to finally be revealed in the months to come.”
