It’s that blessed time of the year where we all try to take stock of what we’ve done with our lives and what other people have created that we enjoyed. That’s right, it’s time to start putting together our “Best of 2016″ lists, and today we’re going to take a look at the Best Boom Studios Covers of 2016.
Meet Jordan, a young man on a mission. You see, Jordan has two dads, one from Earth and one from the planet Ektae. And sadly, both of them are dead. But that's the end of Jordan's responsibilities as a son. He has to transport both of his fathers' remains from Earth to Ektae, which can only be done when the planets align once every seven years. What's more, the urns containing those remains are illegal on Ektae, because they're made of iron, which disrupts the magic that's common on that planet. Also, there's a powerful man on Ektae with a vendetta toward Jordan, and he might be pretty justified.
This is the fascinating premise of Namesake, a new four-issue series by writer Steve Orlando and artist Jakub Rebelka, coming in November from Boom Studios.
