Announced back in January, the build-up to the release of BOOM!’s The Many Deaths of Laila Starr by Ram V, Filipe Andrade and Andworld Design continues this week with the release of preview pages from the first issue. Check them out today at BF with the latest BOOM! press release below.
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at THE MANY DEATHS OF LAILA STARR #1, the first issue in a new original series from acclaimed comics creator Ram V (Swamp Thing, Blue in Green), superstar artist Filipe Andrade (Captain Marvel) and letterer AndWorld Design, that explores the fine line between living and dying in Mumbai through the lens of magical realism, available in April 2021.
With humanity on the verge of discovering immortality, the avatar of Death is fired and relegated to the world below to live out her now-finite days in the body of twenty-something Laila Starr in Mumbai. Struggling with her newfound mortality, Laila hatches a plan and soon discovers a way to be placed at the time and location where the creator of immortality will be born . . . But will Laila take her chance to permanently reverse the course of (future) history, or does a more shocking fate await her within the coils of mortal existence?
THE MANY DEATHS OF LAILA STARR #1 features main cover art by series artist Andrade and variant covers by famed illustrator David Mack (Cover, Jessica Jones), and acclaimed artist Anand RK (Blue in Green).
