Brand New Regular Show Comic Book Series Continues The Story After The End Of The Series

BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network has announced that they’re releasing a new six-issue comic book series which will continue Regular Show’s story after its conclusion on U.S. television last year. The brand new comic book series will be called “Regular Show: 25 Years Later” and will be arriving in comic book retailers in the United States from June 2018. The story will continue from where the animated television show left off, after the epic battle of Pops vs Anti-Pops and just like the final scenes of the last episode, the story will take place 25 years later. At this point, a much older and mature Mordecai and Rigby have moved on from the park, they’ve pursued different career paths but remain very close friends, and they still meet up with their old co-workers at the park.

Christopher Hastings (Deadpool comics) will be writing the new original story and the comic book series will feature art by Anna Johnstone, with JK Phan illustrating the main cover, and with variant covers by Cole Closser (Adventure Time Comics) and Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes).

From The BOOM! Studios Press Release: The Regular Show Returns…25 Years Later

BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network are proud to announce REGULAR SHOW: 25 YEARS LATER #1, the first chapter of an all-new six-issue limited comic book series inspired by the Emmy® Award-winning animated series arriving in stores June 2018. After the stunning conclusion to the landmark Regular Show on Cartoon Network in January 2017 featuring an epic battle between Pops and Anti-Pops, fans have been wondering what’s next for Mordecai, Rigby, and the rest of the park – and now BOOM! Studios has the answer! Journey 25 years into the future with acclaimed writer Christopher Hastings (Deadpool) and the debut of artist Anna Johnstone, as Mordecai and Rigby have a lot to learn about how things never stay the same…

REGULAR SHOW: 25 YEARS LATER #1 features a main cover by JK Phan, with variant covers by Cole Closser (Adventure Time Comics) and Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes).

“I love the relative elegance of a Regular Show story. Start with a mundane problem, try to weasel out of it, and then plunge into madness,” said writer Christopher Hastings. “The characters are completely grounded, have real relationships with each other, and then you take them and stick them in the most bonkers, surreal, fantasy/sci-fi/horror/everything impossible scenarios you can think of. It’s a simple combo, but it gives you room for a countless amount of new stories. The tricky part was figuring out how to get the older and MUCH more mature Mordecai and Rigby to jump into that dance again. They’ve traded their insane adventures for family and career. Seeing how these wiser old pals handle the temptations of adventure will be a big part of the fun of this series, not to mention just catching up with all the other characters, seeing what’s changed in their lives, or what’s stayed the same.”

“When I got asked to work on the new Regular Show comic series I was super excited to meet the challenge,” said artist Anna Johnstone. “The show has a great sense of humour and as a fan I can’t wait to see what kinds of weird stuff they get up to ’25 years later’… plus the best part, I get to draw it!”

REGULAR SHOW: 25 YEARS LATER is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ critically acclaimed KaBOOM! imprint, publisher of world-class licensed series such as Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, Peanuts, and Garfield, along with original series like Brave Chef Brianna by Sam Sykes and Selina Espiritu, and The Deep by Tom Taylor and James Brouwer.

“We are excited about this chance to tell the next chapter of Regular Show in comic book form at BOOM! Studios,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “REGULAR SHOW: 25 YEARS LATER is a must-read for any fan of the show, bringing all the humor, absurdity and irreverence that’s made it so beloved worldwide.”

Print copies of REGULAR SHOW: 25 YEARS LATER #1 will be available for sale in June 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

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.”
