February 8, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA – This April, BOOM! Town issues Shannon Wheeler’s follow-up to the Eisner Award-winning I THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE FUNNIER with I TOLD YOU SO. BOOM! Town offers this 116-page collection of Wheeler’s rejected New Yorker cartoons on the heels of his Eisner win for Best Humor Publication this past summer.
“Shannon has done it again,” says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “He brought an Eisner-worthy collection of strips to I THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE FUNNIER last year, and I’m proud to say that I TOLD YOU SO delivers in the same fashion.”
“If you couldn’t get enough of I THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE FUNNIER, you’ll race to pick up this next collection of Wheeler’s work,” says BOOM! Studios Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ross Richie. “We couldn’t leave it with just one book. There were too many great cartoons left over that The New Yorker didn’t select.”
