Adoption Is a Dangerous Business in First Look at BOOM!’s Last Sons of America

Humanity has always been able to adapt, although not necessarily in the best of ways. This November, debuting writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Matthew Dow Smith (X-Files) explore what happens when a biological attack targets America’s most precious resource—their children—and how the world reacts in the new BOOM! Studios limited series Last Sons of America.

After the attack known as Agent Pink made it impossible for anyone in America to conceive children, child adoptions—and more frequently, kidnappings—from other countries became the most lucrative business in the world. Brothers Jackie and Julian are adoption agents based in Nicaragua, and although they do their adoptions through legal means, they’re facing increased competition from straight-up kidnappers. When Jackie makes a desperate move and takes a seemingly homeless kid off the streets, he puts them in the cross-hairs of some very dangerous people.

“Phillip is a new talent and he’s about to make his mark with this intense, gripping story,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Paired with Matthew’s gorgeous artwork, Last Sons of America has a great concept at its core and asks the heavy questions—sometimes, the best intentions can take you down a dark path.”

Last Sons of America #1 (of 4) arrives in comic shops on November 11th with a main cover by Tonci Zonjic (Lobster Johnson) for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code SEP151104. Also available in a limited quality is a 10 Years incentive cover by Felipe Smith (All-New Ghost Rider), and a retailer incentive cover by series artist Matthew Dow Smith.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
