In a world where luck is quantifiable and something you’re born with, creators Matthew Erman and Stefano Simeone will tell the story of the Unfortunates, a group of teens with no luck at all, in the upcoming comic Good Luck.
The five-issue miniseries will debut in June from BOOM! Studios.
“Good Luck is not only a mind-bending sci-fi adventure about the four unluckiest teens on the planet but also one of the hardest and biggest things I’ve ever written. It wound up being one of the most personal, as well, because it’s a story about unlucky people taking wild swings and hoping for the best, despite what they may believe about themselves,” said Erman, the co-creator of Long Lost. “I’m so excited for you all to meet the unlucky Artie, Cherry, Hilde and Joseph, who live in a universe with a lot of weird little inspirations—Annihilation, Talking Head songs, X-Men, Chrono Trigger—that make this series so unique and hopefully very fun for readers to jump into!”
Here’s the official description from BOOM!: What if Luck was quantifiable, and something everyone was born with? Everyone, except the Unfortunates – teenagers born with absolutely zero Luck. Now, with the world mysteriously plunged into chaos and reality itself threatened, the Unfortunates are our only hope to save the world. When humanity’s last hope is a group of teens with no chance of success, the only thing anyone can do is wish them GOOD LUCK!
“Sometimes, a bit of Good Luck is the best ingredient we can have in our lives,” said Simeone, who has previously worked on comics like Mega Man and Transformers. “Luckily, I think I’ve found some with this new series because it’s got some of the funniest and most fun things to draw in the entire world! I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
