Eve #2 arrives June 9

The story follows the eponymous eleven-year-old Eve as she attempts to escape what’s left of New York City in order to save the world. The good news is that she’s accompanied by a companion: a robot teddy bear named Wexler. The bad news: they’re being stalked by mutants who are looking to consume them! The worse news: according to the press release from BOOM! (which you can read in its entirety below the preview pages), there are worse things than mutants afoot in this brave new world…

Eve #2 will be available at your local comic shop beginning June 9th, 2021 (and hopefully making your way there will not be quite as difficult as escaping from a dystopian version of NYC).
