Eve #1 features a story by Victor LaValle, whose novellas and other published works have received critical acclaim. His most noted titles are The Changeling, which won a 2018 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel, a 2018 Locus Award for Horror Novel, and a 2018 British Fantasy Award for Horror Novel, and The Ballad of Black Tom, a retelling of The Horror at Red Hook by H.P. Lovecraft. His other works have earned him the American Book Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Key to Southeast Queens. LaValle has previously worked for BOOM! Studios on Destroyer, a modern version of Frankenstein.
In Eve #1, the ice caps have melted and a disease has wiped out most of humanity. A girl named Eve awakens with a dark secret, and must go on a quest to try to save her father through the landscape of a dying planet. LaValle commented on the new book:
"What kind of planet are we leaving to our kids? This is the question that spawned my comic book," said LaValle. "But I didn’t want to write some grim story about how this joint went to hell. Instead, I wanted to write a story about how we let the planet fall apart and left it to the younger generations to fix it."
BOOM! pairs LaValle with artist Jo Mi-Gyeoung, a comic artist and illustrator based in Korea. This book will have a main cover rendered by Ario Anindito with variant covers by Yuko Shimizu and Marvel mainstay cover artist InHyuk Lee (see " Darkhawk Gets a Giant-Sized 30th Anniversary Special").
Recently BOOM! also released news of an astronomical order total for BRZRKR #1 (see "'BRZRKR' #1 Orders at 616,841").
