Reading Time: 2 minutes

Heartbeat #5

BOOM! Studios revealed a first look at Heartbeat #5, the oversized final issue of the new original five-issue series by comics creator Maria Llovet (Faithless, Loud) and letterer AndWorld Design (Martian Manhunter)—a dark, violent, decadent, disturbing story, in which life, death, blood, and love are inextricably intertwined, available in March 2020.

With the walls closing in around Eva, she becomes more determined than ever to find a way out, and the easiest path involves a lot more blood.

Heartbeat #5 features main cover art by series creator Maria Llovet as well as variant cover art by artist Tula Lotay (Black Widow)
