Patrick McHale and Jim Campbell Return for New Over the Garden Wall Comic Series

KaBOOM!, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, and Cartoon Network Enterprises, the licensing and merchandising arm of the network, are pleased to announce that Patrick McHale and Jim Campbell have teamed up once again for a new, four-issue Over the Garden Wall limited comic series. Last November, Cartoon Network debuted McHale’s eerily sweet Over the Garden Wall, its first original animated miniseries, about half-brothers Wirt and Greg trying to find their way home. KaBOOM! published a companion one-shot that was eagerly snapped up by fans, selling out immediately.

It’s a new Over the Garden Wall story set between episodes 3 and 4 of the animated series. Wirt and Greg are trying to hitch a ride out of schooltown but end up having to walk. Soon, they come upon two girls playing, and wind up having to keep them entertained so that they don’t wake their giant father!

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 miniseries, 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. A DVD collecting all of the episodes will be released on September 8. Over the Garden Wall is created by Patrick McHale and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

Over the Garden Wall #1 (of 4) arrives in comic shops on August 26th with a main cover by series artist Jim Campbell for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code JUN151090. Also available in a limited quantity is a subscription variant by Adventure Time storyboard artist Steve Wolfhard, a 10 Years incentive cover by Jeffrey Brown, and a retailer incentive cover by creator Patrick McHale.

The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is August 3rd.

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.
