Meet The Crew of 'We Only Find Them When They're Dead'

BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at key character art of the four crew members of the Vihaan II, Captain Malik, Ella Hauer, Alice Wirth, and Jason Hauer, as well as Officer Paula Richter and a Dead God, by series artist Simone Di Meo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) for WE ONLY FIND THEM WHEN THEY’RE DEAD, a new sci-fi epic from Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk), Di Meo, with color assistance by Mariasara Miotti and letters by AndWorld Design, about one man’s unrelenting quest throughout space to discover the truth—no matter where it takes him. Available in stores September 2020.

Meet Captain Malik and the crew of the Vihaan II, a spaceship that harvests resources from the giant corpses of alien gods found on the edge of human space. While other autopsy ships race to salvage the meat, minerals, and metals that sustain the human race, Malik sees an opportunity to finally break free from this system by being the first to find a living god. But Malik’s obsession with the gods will push his crew into danger at the darkest reaches of space—unless the rogue agent on their trail can stop them first...



WE ONLY FIND THEM WHEN THEY’RE DEAD #1 features main cover art by series artist Simone Di Meo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and variant covers by fan favorite artists Toni Infante (Mega Man: Fully Charged, The Red Mother), Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom), Matías Bergara (Coda), and Jenny Frison (Something is Killing the Children).
