Media Release — BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at BLACK BADGE #3, the next chapter of the new acclaimed monthly series reuniting Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins, the Eisner Award-nominated dream team behind Grass Kings. Meet the Black Badges, a top-secret, elite branch of boy scouts tasked by the government to take on covert missions that no adult ever could.
