Aliens Arrive in the Midwest in UFOlogy

UFOlogy #1 Main Cover (Not Final)

When you're a writer, you tend to find your niche. Stephen King does horror. George R. R. Martin does epic--but incomplete--sprawling tales of regicide. James Tynion IV does very strange stories that are simultaneously humorous and terrifying. The Woods and Memetic are perfect examples of Tynion's work, but this April he's adding to his repertoire with UFOlogy. The debut of the issue will team him up with Noah J. Yuenkel and Matthew Fox.

“Character is at the heart of all of James’s stories,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Whether they’re on a strange planet or in rural Wisconsin, he’s proven he’s one of the best in the business when it comes to character-driven stories with rich concepts. This April he’s teaming up with Noah Yuenkel to do it again. They’re joined by the incredibly talented artist Matthew Fox, for a story that feels like an heir to sci-fi thrillers like Super 8 and The X-Files.”

Becky Finch never wanted to be special. She just wanted to be a normal high school student in the small Midwestern town of Mukawgee. Malcolm Chamber wanted something more. A destiny. An answer from the stars. When Becky is marked by an alien’s touch, she’ll stumble into a mystery she never wanted. A mystery that almost ripped apart both their parents’ lives 12 years ago. She’ll need the help of her eccentric young classmate, Malcolm, as she finds the power within herself to uncover the truth.

UFOlogy #1 arrives in comic shops on April 1st with a main cover by Fox for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code FEB151123. Also available in a limited quantity are a Jackpot Variant by Alison Sampson, a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Frazer Irving and a retailer incentive cover by Paul Maybury. The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is March 9th.
