SOLICITATIONS: Regular Show gets official announcement
BOOM! Studios teased its upcoming Regular Show comic a few weeks ago, and now the publisher has released the official statement that includes creators K.C. Green and Allison Strejlau.
This April, KaBOOM! Studios, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, launches REGULAR SHOW, an all-new, all-ages ongoing comic book series based on the smash hit Cartoon Network animated series created by J.G. Quintel. The highly anticipated series will be written by web cartoonist K.C. Green (GUNSHOW) and illustrated by newcomer Allison Strejlau.
Join Mordecai, a blue jay and Rigby, a raccoon, a couple of best bros in their twenties just tryin’ to chill for a bit, man. But when you’re livin’ in as crazy a world as they are, no day can be called…regular!
“It’s exciting to be able to work on this comic as I am a fan of the show. Probably the funnest part is going back over the episodes again for inspiration (and just enjoying them also),” commented writer Green, “Plenty of ideas popping up just working on writing them down and getting the voices of each character just right. That is important, especially with this project.”
REGULAR SHOW #1 ships in April with main covers by Nick Edwards (ADVENTURE TIME), Nathan Fox (X-MEN: SECOND COMING), Phil McAndrew (ADVENTURE TIME, BRAVEST WARRIORS), John Allison (ADVENTURE TIME: MARCELINE AND THE SCREAM QUEENS), Noelle Stevenson (ADVENTURE TIME: FIONNA & CAKE) and Chuck BB (CTHULHU TALES, BCBG). Ask your retailer about the pre-order variant by Chris Houghton (ADVENTURE TIME, REED GUNTHER) and the incentive variant by Dustin Nguyen (BATMAN, L’IL GOTHAM)! Additionally, a commemorative boxed set of all six main covers will be available for collectors.
“I’m really excited to see Regular Show in comic form,” added creator Quintel. “Can’t wait to see what K.C. Green does with it. As someone who also only has two letters for a first name, I’m sure he’s going to make it awesome.”
REGULAR SHOW #1 is a 32 page, full color issue that retails for $3.99 and is available for order under Diamond Code FEB130826-28. The REGULAR SHOW #1 COMPLETE COVER BOX SET contains REGULAR SHOW #1 Covers A-F in a shrink-wrapped commemorative slipcase that retails for $24.99 and is available for order under Diamond Code FEB130829.
