BOOM! Studios will be at the New York Comic-Con this weekend, and will debut Bravest Warriors #1 and a launch party at Jim Hanley’s Universe.
What the heck is Bravest Warriors, you ask?
It’s created by Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, and is an upcoming Cartoon Hangover series that will debut on YouTube this month. BOOM! Studios’ exclusive NYCC cover is done by animator Bob Flynn, and the issue itself is being made available two weeks ahead of the October 24, 2012 release of Bravest Warriors #1.
Fans attending the BRAVEST WARRIORS Launch Party will have an opportunity to get the first issue signed by cover artist Flynn and BRAVEST WARRIORS writer/producer and Executive Producer, Breehn Burns (DR. TRAN, GLOOM COOKIE) on Friday night. The party, being put on by BOOM! Studios, Channel Frederator and Jim Hanley’s Universe will take place from 6pm – 9pm. In addition to the opportunity to get BRAVEST WARRIORS #1 before anyone else, fans will have the chance to enjoy a screening of the first episode of BRAVEST WARRIORS, enter a costume contest for fabulous prizes, and enjoy food and drink while mingling with staff from BOOM! and Frederator. Jim Hanley’s Universe is located conveniently just 1.2 miles from Jacob Javits Center at 4 West 33rd Street Manhattan, NY 10001. They can be reached at (212) 268-7088 or www.jhuniverse.com on the web.
I know there are a lot of Adventure Time fans who visit Major Spoilers on a regular basis, so I’m curious how many are going to grab this series, based on an animated web series, that hasn’t even debuted yet. I’m very interested in online only channels like the ones YouTube has launched over the last couple of months, and if fans continue to follow the creators, Bravest Warriors could be an important piece of animation, comic book, and online history, which kind of makes this special New York Comic-Con exclusive kind of a big deal.
