If you want to turn up the heat this summer, look no further than this dreamy trade paperback. Oni Press has announced Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Comic Book, which collects issues #1-5 of the series based on the Game Grumps dad dating simulator. The book will be released in a trade softcover and in a special edition hardcover, each featuring unique, summer-inspired covers by Kris Anka.
Each issue in the Dream Daddy collection is its own standalone story focused on a different Maple Bay dad, their kids, and their relationships with each other. These feature new backstories and adventures told by game co-creators Leighton Gray and Vernon Shaw, alongside comics creators C. Spike Trotman, Josh Trujillo and Anka. The trade will feature a new introduction by Gray and Shaw, as well as bonus creator commentary on each issue.
Plus, each Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Comic Book trade will feature a bonus poster of its corresponding front cover. Check out the cover art below and be sure to grab a copy when the book hits shelves on May 15.
