Alabama, 1955. Avery Aldridge was a decorated soldier during World War II; now he’s just an ordinary young Black man busy providing for his wife and daughter. But the wounds of the past have a way of coming back, and he’ll soon discover that he is anything but ordinary. After a run-in awakens strange new abilities, Avery’s about to become more powerful than he could have ever dared to dream… in a country and society that never wanted him to have any power.
“LaToya, Walt, A.H.G., and AndWorld Design have created something truly spectacular in this unique, genre-bending saga and issue #1 only scratches the surface of Avery Aldridge’s story,” said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios. “We are humbled to bring the incredible and thought-provoking world of DARK BLOOD to even more readers!”
