KaBOOM! Joins Cartoon Network for a Peek Over the Garden Wall in Comic Special

KaBOOM! and Cartoon Network Enterprises have announced the November 5th release of Over the Garden Wall, an oversized comic book special based on Cartoon Network’s first original animated mini-series that will air over the course of five nights beginning Monday, November 3rd.

The Over the Garden Wall comic is an oversized, 26-page story written and directly supervised by the mini-series’ creator, Patrick McHale. Acclaimed cartoonist, illustrator, and colorist Jim Campbell, who was personally hand-picked by McHale, is drawing and hand-lettering the entire story himself. Designed to seamlessly tie in with the animated mini-series, the comic story is one of the adventures that brothers Wirt and Greg and their ill-tempered bluebird friend Beatrice go on while trying to find their way home from the Unknown, a strange forest adrift in time. In their attempt to get to Adelaide of the Pasture, a mysterious figure who might have the key to getting them home, they team up with a group of wayward soldiers in search of adventure and risk getting thrown even further into the Unknown.

Headlined by an all-star voice-cast that includes Elijah Wood, Collin Dean, and Melanie Lynskey, Over the Garden Wall is Cartoon Network’s first ever mini-series, an animated comedy/fantasy story about two brothers, Wirt and Greg, who are trapped in a mysterious world. In this 10-part production, music plays an important role with a soundtrack full of Americana-influenced original songs. Over the Garden Wall is created by Patrick McHale and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

The Over the Garden Wall one-shot arrives from KaBOOM! in comic shops on November 5th with a cover price of $4.99, under Diamond order code SEP141163. The main cover is illustrated by Jim Campbell, while the retailer incentive cover (1 in 15) is drawn by Patrick McHale.
