SDCC’13: Bob’s Burgers comes to comics
Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to develop comic book series content based on the popular cartoon series, Bob’s Burgers. An animated comedy, with new episodes debuting Sunday nights in September on FOX, Bob’s Burgers features a unique visual style in addition to an engaging, family-fun dynamic that will undoubtedly translate into a high-quality and successful comic book series.
Bob’s Burgers follows the ups and downs of Bob, who runs the Bob’s Burgers restaurant with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, but his family falls short on service and sophistication. The show debuted in 2011. Numerous critics have applauded the series’ offbeat sense of humor. The show was recently nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program, and was also a Critics’ Choice Television nominee for Best Animated Series.
“We could not be more pleased to add Bob’s Burgers to the our line of comics,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of the comic and graphic novel publisher Dynamite. “It’s stylish and hilarious, a feel-good concept that can be both heartwarming and mischievous at the same time. When we told our team that we were approaching Fox for the license, everyone lit up at the opportunity. We look forward to working with our partners at Fox to put out a fantastic product that will appeal to readers of all ages.”
