Welcome Back #2 Hits Second Printing


BOOM! Studios is big on the reprintings lately. First it was Welcome Back #1 getting a third printing and now it's Welcome Back #2 getting a second printing.

Orders close on November 16th, and copies are anticipated to be in stores on December 2nd.

Writer Christopher Sebela and artists Sawyer and Claire Roe explore the lives of reincarnated assassins in Welcome Back. Mali and Tessa have lived hundreds of different lives throughout time, caught up in an eternal cycle as they take part in a war so old that neither side remembers what they’re fighting for anymore. As Mali wakes up in her newest life, she suddenly becomes self-aware and starts to question everything, especially why she continues to fight. But elsewhere, Tessa is already on the hunt… In issue #2, as Tessa flies to America to continue hunting her target, Mali learns the ropes of being a soldier while the memories of hundreds of past lives weigh on her mind.
