“A Cold War Meets ‘Casablanca’ Comic with a Sci-Fi Twist”—Forbes Entertainment
BOOM! Studios is proud to reveal new variant cover art by Eisner Award-nominated artist Matías Bergara (Coda) for STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #4, the newest issue of an all-new original series from Jeff Loveness (Judas), artist Lisandro Estherren (Redneck, The Last Contract), colorist Patricio Delpeche, and letterer Steve Wands, a chilling and intense thriller about an American spy who encounters a terrifying inhuman threat at the heart of the Cold War.
Herring has been running and spying for so long, it’s hard to tell his allies from his enemies. As the alien monster closes in on Herring, the mental attack forces him to come to terms with his past—and the truth about the government he works for.
STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #4 also features main cover art by illustrator Evan Cagle (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
