Media Release — BOOM! Studios unveiled a first look at CODA #5, the newest chapter of the critically-acclaimed broken fantasy epic from Eisner-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (Sandman, The Spire) and Matías Bergara (Cannibal, Supergirl), on-sale in September. Also arriving in stores the same day will be CODA VOL.1 DISCOVER NOW EDITION, a limited edition comic-shop exclusive collection featuring the first four issues of the series, with an MSRP of $9.99.
This all-new series, which sold out at a distributor level before the release of the first issue, reveals the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, in which an antisocial former bard named Hum seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him…but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the weird wasteland.
In CODA #5, featuring a main wraparound cover by Bergara, along with a variant cover by Trevor Hairsine (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid), Hum and Serka must set out to infiltrate the bandit city of Thundervale to investigate the existence of a supposed surviving Wihtlord…the dark beings that set about the apocalypse.
“CODA #5 kicks off a brand-new arc of the epic series, and with the simultaneous release of CODA VOL. 1 DISCOVER NOW EDITION there’s no better time to get caught up on Hum’s misadventures,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios.
CODA is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to the critically-acclaimed licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Joss Whedon’s Firefly, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Bone Parish, Abbott, Mech Cadet Yu, WWE and Klaus.
