It’s not Sons of Anarchy, but Kurt Sutter is keeping the dark edge with his latest BOOM! Studios comic book Lucas Stand. Written by Sutter and Caitlin Kitterdge (Coffin Hill) with art by Jesús Hervás, the story follows Stand, a former special-ops soldier who has a long history of doing dark and terrible things. After returning home, Stand decides he’s had enough, and attempts to commit suicide — only to be offered a literal deal by the devil, in which “every demon he hunts down is cleaning the slate for one of the evil deeds that he’s done.”
The book was announced this weekend at WonderCon. Sutter initially proposed the project as a potential TV series for FX, but found that the broad ideas were better suited for another medium.vSee the exclusive first look at the cover to issue #1, due out in June, by Riley Rossmo.
