Boom! Studios has provided CBR News with a preview of a book we've been anticipating hotly for quite some time, the new first issue of Steven Grant's classic First Comics creation, Whisper. Grant spoke with CBR's Andrew Wickliffe about the reimagining of Whisper, explaining that like the original cult hit, the new Whisper will use black ops, shadow governments, the crime/intelligence community and political paranoia as a backdrop, but that there is otherwise no connection to the original series of First books. Read more of Steven Grant's in-depth interview here, and enjoy this advance look at Whisper #0, coming this August to comic stores everywhere.

Steven Grant's legendary First Comics heroine is back – as an all-new, all-different character! In New Orleans on the eve of Katrina, a collection of privatized black ops gather to provide security for a special mission: security for a drugs-for-weapons swap. Into this gathering steps a woman - the new Whisper. Who may or may not be the woman they think she is, a woman who's supposed to be dead, is very skilled and precise at violence and seems to have useful gaps in her memory. Whoever she is, whatever her agenda, her skills make her invaluable to the man commanding the mission, and he's willing to use her until she runs out of uses. This is an all-new re-imagining, Ultimates-and-All-Star-style, of the legendary First Comics franchise, in mood and spirit much closer to 100 BULLETS than ELEKTRA!
