Coming out this June Regular Show marks a new chapter in cartoon to comics. An all-ages comic based on something that as a father of two I don’t find to be an all-ages show.
Will the book be something I’ll want to share with my 7-year-old? Time will tell…
Here are the covers, followed by the Boom! Studio’s press release:
March 28, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA – BOOM!
