What unspeakable horrors fie in wait within the perfect facade of the idyllic lives of the one percent? We'll find out in August with the debut of Eat the Rich, a new five-issue mini-series from BOOM! Studios. The comic is written by Sarah Gailey, illustrated by Pius Bak, colored by Roman Titov, and lettered by Cardinal Rae.

Welcome to Crestfall Bluffs! With law school and her whole life ahead of her, Joey plans to spend the summer with her boyfriend Astor in his seemingly perfect hometown. It’s a chance to finally meet his family and childhood friends, all while enjoying a vacation where every need is attended to. But beneath the affluent perfection lies a dark, deadly rot… will Joey discover the truth before it’s too late, and even if she does, can she survive to tell the tale?

Eat the Rich is about class inequality and the systems that allow the wealthy to feed on vulnerable people. It's also a feverish love letter to the soapy primetime dramas I hold dear,” said Gailey. “This has been years in the making, and I couldn't be more excited to share it with the world. Welcome to Crestfall Bluffs, friends. I hope you're hungry.”

“I'm very excited to be working on Eat the Rich. Sarah is a brilliant writer and I'm having a lot of fun turning their wonderful narrative and ideas into drawings,” said Bak. “I'm also very happy to have talented colorist Roman Titov and letterer Cardinal Rae on the team, as well as the friendliest editors from BOOM! Studios, working on this series.”

“What’s better than a horror story that expertly peels back the layers of corruption and greed embedded into supposedly civilized society to expose the monstrosity within—one that’s also darkly hilarious and striking in its insight into human nature,” said Elizabeth Brei, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Eat the Rich is all of that and more! It’s been an absolute blast working with the creative team on this series and we can’t wait for everyone to catch a glimpse of what we have in store.”

Eat the Rich #1 features a main cover by Kevin Tong and variant covers by Becca Carey, Jenny Frison, and Leila del Duca. It's set for release in August 2021.
