Alienated #2

BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at Alienated #2, the latest issue of a new original series from acclaimed writer Simon Spurrier (John Constantine: Hellblazer, Coda), artist Chris Wildgoose (Batgirl, Batman: Nightwalker), colorist André May, and letterer Jim Campbell, a subversive coming-of-age story about having all the power to change the world but the unready hands to truly wield it, available in March 2020.

After outcast teens Samuel, Samantha, and Samir find an adorable but dangerous alien creature in the woods and name him Chip, they bond over their shared secret. But as the pressures of hiding an actual alien mount, they each begin to fantasize about how to use Chip’s strange powers to improve the world—starting with their current lives.


Alienated #2 features a main cover illustrated by series artist Chris Wildgoose and variant cover art by acclaimed artist Joe Quinones (Dial H for Hero).
