June 9, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA – Finally, the true leader of the Bravest Warriors is getting his own comic! This June, the jivest rainbow bear to have ever worn butter skates is taking the spotlight in the BRAVEST WARRIORS 2014 IMPOSSIBEAR SPECIAL. A fantastic team of all-star indie creators has come together to make what is probably the greatest comic in history, because…Impossibear. Creators Kevin Panetta, Nikki Mannino (BRAVEST WARRIORS), Jeremy Sorese (STEVEN UNIVERSE), Kevin Church (ADVENTURE TIME), Kat Leyh, Paulina Ganucheau (THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL), and Jess Fink (ADVENTURE TIME) are donning orange mustaches and bringing you a collection of stories that are all about the Bravest Warriors’ favorite. No, not Catbug, it’s Impossibear! While the Bravest Warriors are off on a mission, Impossibear and Catbug are up to no good and having all sorts of shenanigans that are definitely not Impossibear’s fault.
“Honestly, how could we not make a comic all about Impossibear? Have you seen his butter skating performances?” said BOOM! Studios Editor-In-Chief Matt Gagnon under some duress. “The bear’s a genius, so we gathered some of the best indie talent out there to do these stories justice. What…oh, right…’Catbug is a little crybaby, Impossibear is way cooler.’ There, I read it, now can you please untie me, Impossibear?”
BRAVEST WARRIORS 2014 IMPOSSIBEAR SPECIAL #1 arrives in comic shops this week on June 11th with a cover price of $4.99 under Diamond order code APR141022. The main cover is illustrated by Ian McGinty (ADVENTURE TIME), with an incentive cover available in a limited quantity drawn by Andy Hirsch (GARFIELD).
