BOOM! Studios and Nickelodeon have announced Rocko’s Modern Life, a new ongoing comic book series based on the popular animated show about everyone’s favorite wallaby! Writer Ryan Ferrier and artist Ian McGinty team to launch the first comic book in the series in December 2017. Each issue will also feature bonus short stories by different illustrators, including Tony Millionaire, KC Green, and David DeGrand.
Rocko, Spunky, Heffer, Filburt, the Bigheads, and the entire cast of O-Town are back, but all is not well. The town is facing a job shortage and Rocko is hit hard. With unemployment and potential homelessness on the horizon, Rocko’s problems are just beginning. But with help from his best friends Heffer and Filbert and his faithful dog Spunky, Rocko is (mostly) ready to take on the world (maybe).
Rocko’s Modern Life #1 features a main cover by Jorge Monlongo, a “look-and-find” cover by Bachan, and a variant cover by Nick Pitarra. BOOM! Studios will also be offering a blank Sketch Cover for this launch.
