Official PR follows and then a preview:
BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at RUGRATS: C IS FOR CHANUKAH #1, an oversized one-shot available in comic shops on-sale November 14th from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert writing duo of Daniel Kibblesmith (Quantum & Woody) & Cullen Crawford and artist Kate Sherron (The Amazing World of Gumball).
It’s time for the Rugrats family vacation to the mountains, complete with the annual argument between Grandpa Lou and Boris arguing over which holiday is better: Chanukah or Christmas. Boris is determined to prove his holiday is the best and starts giving Tommy and the babies a history lesson on the Golem which sets imaginations ablaze. Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil now all feel that they have to save Chanukah from the Golem before it steals the holiday away for good!
“The Rugrats have always managed to put their own unique stamp on the holidays and this Chanukah Special continues that tradition in new and exciting ways! ” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Daniel & Cullen’s script is blisteringly funny. These guys just nail the characters voices. But Kate’s art is what brings it all to life, drawing everything from ancient Israel to wild sled rides. This adventure is not to be missed!”
