BOOM! Studios announced today MOSELY, a brand new five-issue limited series from Farmhand creator and co-creator of Chew, Rob Guillory, highly acclaimed artist Sam Lotfi (Harley Quinn), and colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieu (I HateFairyland), chronicling one man’s attempt to take down the mighty idols of technology that have captivated the world in the near future. Available in stores January 2023.
In the hyper-technological world of the later 21st century, Mosely is a bitter old janitor on a mission from a higher power—to unleash holy Hell upon the “too big to fail” Tech Gods. Can one man bring down the corporate powers who’ve used their vast influence to oppress an all too complacent human race (and hopefully win back the favor of his estranged family while he’s at it)? Mosely’s taking up the Holy Hammer and you better believe he’s gonna smash some $h!t until he sets mankind free!
Rob Guillory is an Eisner Award-winning American comic book artist and writer. Born, raised and currently based in Lafayette, Louisiana, Guillory is most known for his eight-year run on Image Comics’ New York Times Bestselling Chew. The book went on to achieve much success, winning two Harvey Awards (including Best New Talent for Guillory), two Eisner Awards, as well as being translated into a dozen or so languages. Guillory is also currently writer/artist on his hit creator-owned series Farmhand from Image Comics.
“I pictured MOSELY as the summer action blockbuster I’ve always wanted to write. But when I put pen to paper, Marvin Mosely had bigger plans. Turns out Mose was such a huge character that this story had to grow to epic proportions just to contain him,” said Guillory. “He’s maybe the most unlikely savior of the world in comics today. And you’re gonna completely fall in love with the old bastard.”
Sam Lotfi is a comic book artist living in Austin, TX. He’s best known for his work on Mosely with Boom! Studios, Alfred: Pain in the Butler with DC Comics, and Last Stop on the Red Line with Dark Horse Comics, as well as other work for DC, IDW, Dynamite & 1First Comics. You can find Sam on Instagram @slotfi.
“I’m thrilled to be telling this story with Rob. It’s always a joy to create characters and a world from the ground up and even more fun to watch those characters collide! I found myself making sound effects out loud while drawing this book, that’s how fun the world of MOSELY is!” said Lotfi.
MOSELY #1 features main cover art by series artist Lotfi, and variant covers by series creator Guillory and highly acclaimed artists Joe Palmer (Time Before Time), Mike Huddleston (Decorum), and more.
“The false gods of technology have NOTHING on MOSELY in this exciting new sci-fi series that pits a singular individual against all of the corrupt corporate powers of Big Tech” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Of course, being the creative geniuses they are, Rob and Sam make this a fun, action-packed, and extremely entertaining thrill ride so get ready for big boss fights and a peek into a futuristic society that challenges our own relationships with our devices!”
