Boom! Studios Launches Higher Earth

Space is dead. Why conquer other planets when there's a perfectly good Earth in the universe next door? HIGHER EARTH, the epic new sci-fi thriller from BOOM! Studios this May created and written by indie sensation Sam Humphries (OUR LOVE IS REAL, ULTIMATE COMICS: ULTIMATES) and drawn by Francesco Biagini (ELRIC: THE BALANCE LOST), offers the first full 22-page issue of this ongoing series for only $1!

Title ships in May with main covers by Joe Benitez, Phil Noto, Frazer Irving, and Ben Oliver in a 30/30/30/10 split, a retailer incentive variant by David Aja (1:15), a "You Are Illegal On This Earth" variant (1:25), and a sketch variant by Joe Benitez (1:50).

There will also be a special CGC certified 9.8 Near Mint variant by legendary artist Michael Golden (THE MICRONAUTS) (1:100).

“Higher Earth is a sci-fi revenge story set in an empire that has conquered over a hundred earths across alternate time-lines,” says writer Sam Humphries. “We follow Rex and Heidi as they slash a bloody path through an empire where going from one time-line to the next is as natural as taking a flight from New York to London. It’s a massive cognitive leap that is now a day-to-day reality for a civilization of a thousand billion citizens." “This is the sci-fi thriller Sam has been waiting to tell after his huge success with OUR LOVE IS REAL,” says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.

“With the full first issue priced at only $1, this is a can't-miss from a hot creator!” says BOOM! Studios Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ross Richie. “Don't miss out on HIGHER EARTH!"
