BUCKHEAD #5 Boom! Studios The Nerdy Basement


Discover the Truth About an Ancient & Powerful Mystery in Final Issue of Afrofuturist Series, ‘BUCKHEAD’ this April

BOOM! Studios today revealed the first look at BUCKHEAD #5, the final issue in the five-issue limited series from rising star author Shobo (Outcasts of Jupiter), artist George Kambadais (The Black Ghost), and letterer Jim Campbell (Jim Henson’s Storyteller) about a Nigerian immigrant family meeting strange new people and dealing with unusual experiences in the mysterious town of Buckhead, USA. Available in April 2022.

Toba and his friends have split up. He’s entered the Elseverse in search of his father, while the rest of the group works to take down the mind-control device threatening all of Buckhead. But that’s not all they’ll have to contend with… as an ancient power once thought defeated is freed from the Elseverse, spelling almost certain doom for them all!

Experience the epic conclusion to this incredible adventure as the mystery of the Eben sword is finally revealed.

BUCKHEAD #5 features main cover art by George Kambadais (Firefly), as well as a video game homage variant cover by Simangaliso Sibaya (Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire) with colors by Natalia Nesterenko and Unlockable Variant cover art by illustrator Michael Okoro.
