‘Regarding The Matter Of Oswald’s Body’ will feature a cast of crazy characters brought in to clean up ‘the crime of the century.’
BOOM! Studios has announced Regarding The Matter Of Oswald’s Body, a new “off-kilter crime thriller” built around the assassination of John F. Kennedy, by writer Christopher Cantwell and artist Luca Casalanguida.
“As a Dallas native and born obsessive, the Kennedy assassination and its infinite mysteries have often occupied my stray thoughts,” said Cantwell. “Regarding The Matter Of Oswald’s Body is both an oddball love letter and an offbeat elegy to the strangest, most wistful and ultimately tragic elements of the state of Texas, with a cast of characters you’ll love, love to hate and be sometimes hilariously confounded by.”
Cantwell and Casalanguida are joined by colorist Giada Marchisio and letterer AndWorld Design on the project.

The new title debuts from AfterShock Comics in November.
Paul Tobin and Andy MacDonald have a new comic called Croak coming from AfterShock in November that combines weaponized nightmares, monsters and … modern dating? Yeah, it’s an interesting, complicated mix, but it sounds pretty cool, as Tobin explains it:
“Croak is about finding monsters and true love, and learning to tell the difference. It’s a world where dream research has ripped a hole between realities, and now legions of legendary monsters stalk the lands. The only way these dream portals can be closed is if certain people quit having nightmares, if they find peace and lead character Risa needs…to fall in love,” Tobin said. “We’re talking TRUE love. Helping her (mostly) is Croak himself, a troll with (maybe) her best interests in mind, but he’s ALSO fond of how she finds and kills monsters, because Croak eats monsters, and he’s always ravenous. So Croak—the comic—is Risa’s story of trying to navigate a world that’s both full of monsters, and monstrously bad dates. She isn’t sure which she’d rather face.”
