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!
