For those of you who may not have heard, George Perez, a true comics icon, brings his first original series in over ten years to BOOM! Studios. Sirens debuts September 17th and it looks amazing. Sounds like George Perez is gearing up for an epic space opera on the level of Star Wars, so let’s see what the folks at BOOM! have to say about it.
“George Pérez is known for working on some of the most beloved comic book characters and stories in the industry, so when he approached us saying he had an original story with an all-female team, there was only one correct answer,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Quite simply, the man is a legend. He’s been an integral part of the comics industry for over 40 years, and it’s an honor to be working with him on a brand-new series. We can’t wait for everybody to see what George is creating with SIRENS.”
As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy—but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are? And the rest of the universe only remembers them as…villains? A six-issue miniseries featuring your new favorite comic book team, written and drawn by the master himself, George Pérez begins his greatest story yet.
George Pérez’s Sirens #1 arrives in comic shops on September 17th with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code JUL140949. The main covers include two full-color connecting wraparound covers by George Pérez and another illustrated by Cameron Stewart (Fight Club 2, Batman and Robin), with two connecting incentive covers of the George Pérez wraparound cover pencils.
Think that sounds cool? I will be grabbing this one off the shelf and getting a review out to all of you just as soon as it hits the shelves, maybe a little sooner. For now, check out these amazing wrap around covers and tell you don’t love this stuff. You can even catch George Perez at Baltimore Comic Con this weekend.
