It’s not quite Pokemon, but the teaser images we’ve been seeing all week finally get a big reveal as BOOM! Studios announces Capture Creatures for the company’s KaBOOM! imprint.

Capture Creatures arrives in November from the publisher, with Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson doing all the heavy work.

Becky and Frank created the creatures as an homage to Pokémon and posted them online starting in early 2012. (Fun fact: The first creature they created was Bon Bon Fire, who is featured on the main cover.) Fans loved them! Becky and Frank were eventually able to successfully Kickstart an art book and do an exhibit at Gallery Nucleus. Now, we are very excited to be bringing CAPTURE CREATURES to its own comic book series! In the series, over 100 creatures have mysteriously appeared on earth, and two teenagers try to discover where they came from and stop those who are trying to destroy them.


BOOM! Studios promises more information soon, but now we know all about the project.
