I hope I didn’t take the fun out of it for any of you when I posted my theory yesterday, the art style is so unique, so adorable it was kind of hard to miss. That being said BOOM! has given us more details today.
From the press release: CAPTURE CREATURES, an original KaBOOM! series launching in November from Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson, the team behind the popular webcomic, Tiny Kitten Teeth. Becky also did art for the ADVENTURE TIME 2014 ANNUAL, and Frank is currently writing THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL comics for KaBOOM!.
Seems Becky and Frank began all this as an homage to Pokémon (the similarity which Julie remarked on immediately) and they started the Capture Creatures site in early 2012. It was so well received they were able to Kickstart a book and do an exhibit at Gallery Nucleus!
And now they’re launching a comic! Check out the covers for issue 1! (The main cover is by series artist Becky Dreistadt and the chase cover is by Joy Ang.)
The series revolves around two teens trying to solve the mystery of where these 100 creatures came from, while trying to protect them from those who would see them destroyed…
Issue #1 is due out in November, we’ll have more info for you as we get it!
Right now in the August Previews pre-order the third bank in the series! Harley Quinn! (Item Code: AUG142600, SRP: $19.99)
Arkham Asylum: Harley Quinn Bust Bank (Item Code: AUG142600, SRP: $19.99)

BOOM! STudios Press Release:
August 13, 2014 (Los Angeles, Calif.) - Fight back with BOOM! Studios as we take you on a journey of survival with our latest original series debuting in September, WILD’S END. Writer Dan Abnett, whose groundbreaking run on Guardians of the Galaxy was the inspiration for the hit Marvel film adaptation, is teaming up with artist I.N.J Culbard (H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness) to bring readers a smart take on a classic science-fiction mythos. Abnett takes a decidedly more earthbound vantage point as Clive, Peter, and Gilbert suddenly find their 1930s rural England community invaded by aliens. Fans of Blacksad and MOUSE GUARD will love the anthropomorphic characters of WILD’S END as they struggle to preserve their own lives, which have been upended by the harsh realities of death and violence. Their race to discover the secret behind the invasion is reminiscent of the iconography depicted in H.G Wells’ The War of the Worlds crossed with the buddy comedy humor as found in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto trilogy.
“We are ecstatic to welcome Dan Abnett back to BOOM! with this amazing original series,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon, referring to the 2012 series by Abnett, THE HYPERNATURALS, that was published by the studio. “Dan is one of comics’ most renowned science-fiction writers, and I can tell you that he and I.N.J are taking us on a ride that’s crazy entertaining and very unexpected with WILD’S END. I think this series is going to find a special place on the reading lists of folks who are looking for something a little different on the comic shelves every month.”
WILD’S END #1 invades comic book shops on September 10th with a main cover by series artist I.N.J. Culbard and a retailer incentive cover by David Petersen (MOUSE GUARD) for the price of 3.99 under Diamond order code JUL140956. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer? Use comicshoplocator.com or findacomicshop.com to find one! It’s also available for order directly from boom-studios.com.

Consider that they’ve already raised $138,693.82 from 14,014 purchases (that’s an average purchase of $9.90) with the original 9 titles, then unlocked another 10, and now at least the 4 they’re announcing today and there’s still a week to go. This has definitely been a heck of a successful campaign.
