Close on the heel of the Adventure Time comic empire, Boom is striking again with a comics adaptation of The Regular Show, J.G. Quintel’s Cartoon Network hit about Mordecai and Rigby, a blue jay and raccoon trying to make their way in a crazy world. K.C. Green writes and Alison Strejlau draws.
The new series ships in April, with variant covers by
Nick Edwards (ADVENTURE TIME)
Nathan Fox (X-MEN: SECOND COMING)
Phil McAndrew (ADVENTURE TIME, BRAVEST WARRIORS)
John Allison (ADVENTURE TIME: MARCELINE AND THE SCREAM QUEENS)
Noelle Stevenson (ADVENTURE TIME: FIONNA & CAKE)
Chuck BB (CTHULHU TALES, BCBG).
There’s also a limited edition pre-order variant by Chris Houghton (ADVENTURE TIME, REED GUNTHER) and incentive variant by Dustin Nguyen (BATMAN, L’IL GOTHAM)! A commemorative boxed set of all six main covers will be available for collectors.
Normally, we’d be annoyed by all these variant covers but they always turn out so cute, we can’t say no.
“It’s exciting to be able to work on this comic as I am a fan of the show. Probably the funnest part is going back over the episodes again for inspiration (and just enjoying them also),” said Green in a statement, “Plenty of ideas popping up just working on writing them down and getting the voices of each character just right. That is important, especially with this project.”
“I’m really excited to see Regular Show in comic form,” said Quintel. “Can’t wait to see what K.C. Green does with it. As someone who also only has two letters for a first name, I’m sure he’s going to make it awesome.”
