Kaboom! and Boom Box January Titles!

WHY BOOM! LOVES IT: Marceline and the Scream Queens was our first Adventure Time miniseries and we loved the tour Meredith Gran took us on. It’s definitely time for more Marceline and what better way to get everything rolling than with an epic that takes Marceline and Princess Bubblegum to the far corners of the world and into space!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Marceline. The. Vampire. Queen. From the writer that brought you Marceline and the Scream Queens, Meredith Gran (Octopus Pie), and introducing indie talent Carey Pietsch, this is your chance to get some one-on-one time with one of your favorite residents of Ooo.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Marceline is on a rampage for mysterious reasons, and the kingdom of Ooo is desperately scrambling to stop her. In trying to save both Ooo and Marceline herself, Princess Bubblegum accidentally propels Marceline into the farthest reaches of space…and strips her of her powers! Guilt-ridden, Princess Bubblegum sets off on a space rescue that’ll test the power of her mind…as well as the power of friendship.

munchkin

WHY BOOM! LOVES IT: As long-time fans of the game, we’re jazzed to weave stories out of the world of Munchkin, whether it’s from the perspective of one Munchkin, a gang of them, or even one of the monsters that live behind the doors!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Kick open the door. Kill the monster. Steal the treasure. Screw over everybody you come in contact with. Welcome to the world of Munchkin, a gathering of stories based on the popular game series. It’s a laugh a minute, pal. Plus, every first printing of every issue will ship with an exclusive card for the game.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Based on the immensely popular card game, Munchkin comes to comics! Munchkin takes place in a very flexible mashup of genres. Originally a satire of fantasy roleplaying, it has since then taken on non-fantasy and non-gaming elements. Characters in Munchkin change constantly but never permanently. What do Munchkins do? They play for the win. They are rules lawyers. They backstab. They gloat. They whine when someone else backstabs or gloats. Munchkins are emotional. Munchkins may be clever, but they are never wise. Munchkins have short attention spans. Munchkins may be brave in the face of awful odds, but they are even braver when beating up crippled goblins for their lunch money. If a Munchkin seems to show mercy, it’s because he was bored or distracted. After all, even stomping an ant helps you level up.

WHY BOOM! LOVES IT: In 1984, Jim Davis created a groundbreaking series of illustrated short stories called Garfield: His 9 Lives, setting the Fat Cat in various eras, that became an instant classic. We loved it so much we wanted to do it again!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Even if you’ve never read the original His 9 Lives stories or watched the 1988 animated special, you’ll enjoy these unique interpretations by an all-star cast of cartoonists, including Andy Hirsch, David DeGrand, Roger Langridge, Frazer Irving, and Genevieve FT, as they depict Garfield through the ages, from prehistoric times, to the reaches of outer space.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: “Garfield: His 9 Lives, Part 1.” The journey begins with “Cave Cat,” as David DeGrand takes us back to Garfield’s first life, during the earliest days of life on Earth! Then, Kari Smith illustrates “King Cat,” as we see how Garfield got down in Ancient Egypt.
