Over The Garden Wall: Distillatoria Graphic Novel To Be Released November 2018

Over The Garden Wall: Distillatoria Graphic Novel To Be Released November 2018

Cartoon Network’s critically acclaimed and Creative Arts Emmy Award winning miniseries – Over The Garden Wall will be returning in the form of another graphic novel this November entitled “Over The Garden Wall: Distillatoria”. The new graphic novel will be written by the Eisner Award-winning writer – Jonathan Case and will feature art from the Eisner Award-winning artist – Jim Campbell. After premiering on Cartoon Network USA in 2014, Boom Comics’ children’s imprint – kaboom! released a 20-issue comic based on the series further detailing Wirt’s and Greg’s adventures in the Unknown, the new graphic novel is the latest story from the Over the Garden Wall universe and will also be published by BOOM! Comics.

In the new graphic novel – Over The Garden Wall: Distillatoria, Greg and Wirt suddenly return home after exploring the Unknown, but they’ve accidentally brought Beatrice back home with them, both of them must help Beatrice return home before anyone finds out that she can talk. However everything is not as it seems and there’s something happening in the shadows.

While talking about the plot of the new graphic novel, Jonathan Case said:

“As a borderline-scary fan of Over the Garden Wall, I’m excited to find myself at the helm of a new adventure for Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice. Really, really excited, you guys. With Distillatoria, we’ll revisit some familiar and beloved bits: the Unknown, the Wirt-poems, the rock facts…but we’ll also explore new and (I hope) surprising territory. I dearly hope this new book is a good time for all my fellow old souls and romantic weirdos. And of course, all the lovers of Greg.”

Jim Campbell also talked about the artwork in the new graphic novel, he said:

“At this point drawing Over the Garden Wall feels like home to me. I love this world. I’m really excited about exploring a lot of the new, weird, and creepy imagery Jonathan has conjured up for this story. But it’s also got some of my favorite settings and characters from the show we haven’t seen in the comics yet. This is going to be a good one.”

Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios also added:

“Over The Garden Wall: Distillatoria is a fun filled adventure with Wirt and Greg having to deal with some strange twists and turns as they find themselves suddenly home after being trapped in the Unknown. Jonathan and Jim have made an insanely talented team and this is definitely going to be a story that you don’t want to miss.”
