BOOM! Studios will celebrate multiple anniversaries this year, including BOOM! BOX, SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, and much more.

The press release follows:

Media Release -- BOOM! Studios was thrilled to make a return to ComicsPRO's Annual Comic Industry Meeting, celebrating the organization's 20th anniversary this year in Pittsburgh, PA. As we continue to support our valued retail partners in 2024, please find the key points from BOOM! Studios' presentation below:

This year, BOOM! Studios will commemorate landmark milestones in its history as a publisher:

The 5th year anniversary of the Slaughterverse's flagship title SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN as well as co-creator James Tynion IV's 10th anniversary at the company.

The blockbuster series will return this year with issue #36, kicking off "ERICA SLAUGHTER YEAR ONE" in April: five self-contained stories that reveal what made Erica the iconic monster hunter we all know and love, perfect for new readers and long-time fans alike.

Spinoff series HOUSE OF SLAUGHTER returns in March with issue #21, as Jace Boucher's FINAL story is told in "The Butcher's War" culminating in the landmark 25th issue. Additionally, the long-awaited second deluxe hardcover of SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN will release this fall, alongside additional anniversary driven announcements to come.

The 10th year anniversary of the award-winning YA imprint BOOM! BOX and its category-defining series LUMBERJANES.

Off of the breakout success of Michael Dialynas' magical eco-fable ZAWA, the beloved imprint's banner year kicks off with I HEART SKULL-CRUSHER! by writer Josie Campbell (My Adventures With Superman) and artist Alessio Zonno (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) in March.

Three more BOOM! Box series featuring incredible creative teams that have never worked with BOOM! Studios before will be announced later this year.

Both of these anniversaries will be celebrated at FREE COMIC BOOK DAY in May, with THE WORLDS OF JAMES TYNION IV and BOOM BOX 10TH ANNIVERSARY EXTRAVAGANZA specials.

2024 will also be a pivotal year for one of BOOM! Studios' biggest tentpole franchises: BRZRKR.

Kicking off a year of BRZRKR releases will be the inaugural story in the second volume of BRZRKR: BLOODLINES, the series of standalone extra-length comic specials exploring B.'s bloody history.

Penning this new story will be legendary comics writer Jason Aaron (Once Upon a Time at the End of the World, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Batman Off-World) and superstar artist Francesco Manna (Predator: The Last Hunt, Carnage).

Titled BRZRKR: A FACEFUL OF BULLETS, this standalone special will bring B. to the iconic setting of the 1800s American West, placing him in the middle of a grudge match between a greedy land baron and his runaway daughter where he must decide if he will play the role of a guardian angel, or succumb to his violent tendencies…

BRZRKR: A FACEFUL OF BULLETS #1 will be available in comic shops in June 2024.

In July, the world of BRZRKR will expand even further with an original prose novel from Dey Rey — THE BOOK OF ELSEWHERE, written by Keanu Reeves and bestselling, award-winning author China Miéville.

New BRZRKR PEN & INK editions, featuring stunning black and white artwork and exclusive artist commentary, are also coming this year beginning with Steve Skroce's Poetry of Madness next month.

A complete Deluxe Hardcover collecting the initial 12 issue mega-series in one premium volume will arrive this fall.

More exciting BRZRKR announcements, both in publishing and beyond, will come throughout the year.

The celebrated series THE EXPANSE: DRAGON TOOTH, set in the universe of James S.A. Corey's The Expanse, will arrive at its monumental conclusion this year with issue #12 in May.

BOOM! Studios has teased plans beyond the current series, to be announced later this year.

BOOM! Studios will celebrate another epic milestone in 2024 with the 20th anniversary of THE AMORY WARS, the New York Times best-selling series created by Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez.

Announced earlier this week, the climactic chapter of the acclaimed sci-fi saga — NO WORLD FOR TOMORROW — will launch in comic shops in May.

Claudio Sanchez along with his wife and co-writer Chondra Echert, currently touring in their side project The Prize Fighter Inferno, performed a secret set exclusively for our retail partners at the ComicsPRO event today.

BOOM! Studios reiterated its mission to support and champion retailer partners in 2024.

Coupled with Diamond's newly announced 3% of retail flat shipping rate, BOOM! Studios reinforced its commitment to its 2% of retail weekly freight rebate, reducing retailer freight costs to a mere 1% of retail beginning April 1.

Additionally, BOOM! Studios announced a deep discount sale that will run March 25 through April 5 so comic shops can take advantage of the improved shipping costs to restock their shelves.

These initiatives augment BOOM! Studios' industry-leading, consistent affidavit returnability program (BOOM! Guarantee), best-in-class marketing and sales resources, and point-of-sale materials.
