BOOM! and Simon Spurrier team up to release EXTERMINATION

Hot off the heels of his successful run with Marve’s X-CLUB, Simon Spurrier joins forces with BOOM! Studios to reveal a new dystopian super-hero series called EXTERMINATION. Drawn by up and comer Jeffrey Edwards, EXTERMINATION also has a slew of reputable cover artists, such as John Cassaday, Trevor Hairsine, Michael Gaydos, James Harren and Frazer Irving.

EXTERMINATION seeks to re-imagine conventional ideas of a post-apocalypse world, one where superheroes are at a loss as to whom to save and villains have nothing left to conquer. The moral divide is blurred as both sides unite to fight a new common enemy, a new form of powerful alien creatures, called EDDA, whose strength has already decimated Earth, leaving it broken and in total ruin. Two unlikely allies form an alliance for the sake of survival and an attempt to salvage what’s left of the planet. Whether or not they prove successful is still a mystery…

This June, BOOM! Studios launches EXTERMINATION, an all-new ongoing super-hero thriller written by Simon Spurrier (X-CLUB, FEAR ITSELF: THE HOME FRONT, CROSSED, WOLVERINE: DANGEROUS GAMES) and drawn by rising star Jeffrey Edwards, with a full 22-page first issue for only $1!

WE LOST. THEY WON. In the wake of an apocalyptic alien invasion, the world’s greatest super-heroes and deadliest super-villains must form an alliance to prevent their own extermination. Two arch-enemies, Nox, a driven hero, and Red Reaper, a ruthless villain, form a volatile partnership for the greater good. The enemy of your enemy is your friend — but will they be able to ultimately put aside their bitter past to prevent global genocide? What happens when all the battle lines are redrawn and foes become unlikely allies in a desperate war for the fate of the very planet — and the outcome of a species?

Title ships in June with main covers by John Cassaday, Trevor Hairsine, Michael Gaydos, James Harren, and Frazer Irving, as well as James Harren and Trevor Hairsine sketch covers. There will also be a special 1:100, CGC certified 9.8 Near Mint sketch variant by legendary artist John Cassaday.

“Si Spurrier is a massive talent,” says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “With EXTERMINATION, he’s boldly exploring the dark crevices of the entire superhero genre. Not to be missed!”

“I love the premise of this post-apocalyptic series,“ says BOOM! Studios Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ross Richie. “At $1 for the first full issue and with this exciting cover line-up and a killer creative team, this book is ready to catch on fire.”
