WHY WE (BOOM Box) LOVE IT: You ever think of a story that you’d love to tell, but can’t think of a home for them? Well, those stories go to this sweet little orphanage for eccentric tales, called THE MIX TAPE. We gathered the best of the best, reached out to our favorite artists and storytellers, and created this oversized, deluxe love letter for you.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: If you’re loving THE MIDAS FLESH, LUMBERJANES, TEEN DOG, and CYANIDE & HAPPINESS, and are excited for our comics adaptation of the MUNCHKIN card game, delve into a world of like-minded stories! From the wacky to the touching, you’ll never know what you’re going to get. Here’s a hint: a brand-new LUMBERJANES story written and drawn by Noelle Stevenson and the first ever MUNCHKIN comic by John Kovalic.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: We reached out to a bunch of our favorite creators with one mission in mind—to bring original, unconventional characters and stories to life. THE MIX TAPE is an eclectic collection of stories based on characters that are anything but your average lot. Talking hamburgers, misunderstood ghosts, and punk rock grandmas are just the tip of these stories that are best described as “off the beaten track.”
THE MIDAS FLESH VOL. 1 TP
Retail Price: $14.99
Author: Ryan North
Artists: Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb
Cover Artist: Emily Partridge
WHY WE (BOOM! Box) LOVE IT: An edge-of-your-seat, save the universe adventure with two butt-kickin’ ladies and a dinosaur in a spacesuit? Yes, please! THE MIDAS FLESH was the first comic to come from our BOOM! Box imprint, and it’s everything we love about quirky comics made “for the love of it.”
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Ryan North (DINOSAUR COMICS), Shelli Paroline, and Braden Lamb have already proven to be an unstoppable team on their award-winning ADVENTURE TIME run. Now North’s debut original print comic book series will leave the reader reeling from start to gilded finish.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: We’ve all heard of the Midas touch. You know, the Greek myth about the man who did a number on himself by wishing for everything he touched to turn to gold? Well, you haven’t heard everything. Joey and her space crew have decided to return to Earth—a planet completely sectioned off, abandoned, and covered in gold—to find out exactly what happened to this once thriving planet and see if they can use that knowledge against the evil empire that’s tracking them down. As luck would have it, they just landed the most powerful weapon in the universe: some ancient dead guy’s body. Collects issues #1-4.
