Soule And Alburquerque’s ‘Letter 44′ #1 To Debut At SDCC With B&W Oni Exclusive
Fans who can’t wait until the official October launch of Letter 44 will have an early opportunity to snag the first issue of Charles Soule and artist Alberto Alburquerque’s sci-fi series this week at San Diego Comic-Con. Following its initial announcement at Emerald City in March, publisher Oni Press has decided to whet fan appetites a little early with a convention exclusive black and white edition of Letter 44 #1.
While technically billed as a preview of the first issue, those who score a copy at Oni booth # 1833 will be able to read the entire story, just sans Guy Major’s upcoming colors, of course.
From Oni’s official solicitation info:
There’s something up there. As newly elected President Stephen Blades reads the letter left for him in the Oval Office by his predecessor, he learns this stunning secret: seven years earlier, NASA discovered an alien construction project in the asteroid belt. A crew of heroic astronauts was sent to investigate, and they’re nearing the conclusion of their epic journey. Don’t miss the first chapter in this thrilling tale of real-world space travel, intrigue, and secret histories!
You can get an early look at a smattering of pages from the SDCC exclusive Letter 44 #1 black and white preview edition below.
