What’s to Love: It’s time again to be excellent to each other!

Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Daniel Bayliss
Incentive Cover: Nick Pitarra
Format: 32 pages, full color
Price: $3.99

What’s to Love: From Oz to Shawshank Redemption, we just love great prison dramas. But what if the prison in question is an animal shelter? Ryan Ferrier (Curb Stomp) and Daniel Bayliss (Translucid) combine the tradition of great anthropomorphic stories like Wild’s End and Blacksad with the madcap twists of Six-Gun Gorilla and Chew in their new series Kennel Block Blues.

What It Is: Oliver is a good dog. A family dog. But without warning, he’s sentenced to Jackson Kennel, where he’s instantly placed on Death Row with the rest of his fellow inmates, awaiting a lethal appointment on The Table if salvation doesn’t come. He’ll need help escaping the Kennel, but when the stress of prison life builds, he starts escaping reality instead, imagining a fantasy world of cartoon friends. It’s time to break out…into a musical number?

Writer: Sam Humphries
Artist: Caitlin Rose Boyle
Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Caitlin Rose Boyle
Incentive Cover: Lissa Treiman
Format: 32 pages, full color
Price: $3.99
On sale: February 2016

What’s to Love: Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Jonesy is a comic about love that makes us swoon! Sam Humphries (Fanboys Vs. Zombies, Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex) and fresh talent Caitlin Rose Boyle (Buck n’ Lou & the Night Crew) bring something special to BOOM! Box with this series about mad-cap shenanigans, friendship, pals, being a teenager, and figuring out who you are…with a teen cupid twist! If you like Giant Days, dig adorkable romance stories, or just want to smile from ear to ear after reading a comic, you’ll fall in love with Jonesy!

What It Is: Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. She’s a cupid in plaid. With a Tumblr. There’s only one catch—it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong…

Clarence: Chicken Phantom Vol. 1 OGN

Publisher: KaBOOM!, an imprint of BOOM! Studios
Writer: Derek Fridolfs
Artist: JJ Harrison
Cover Artist: JJ Harrison
Format: 6” x 9”, 144 pages, full color
Price: $14.99
On sale: February 2016

What’s to Love: We’ve all been Clarence at one point. He’s an optimistic, nine-year-old kid who sees the best in everyone and is happy to play the day away with his best friends, Jeff and Sumo. Writer Derek Fridolfs and illustrator JJ Harrison bring all the heart from the hit Cartoon Network animated series to our first-ever Clarence original graphic novel, and it reads like an extended episode of the show. Take a moment to relive childhood!

What It Is: Clarence and his friends join the Rough Riders Scouts for a summer out in the woods. While looking through a cave, they discover a lost journal written by the notorious Black Buck The Pirate (an ancestor of Rough Rider Chicken founder Buckey O’Neill). It details his adventures on the ocean and where he buried his treasure. But he also warns of a phantom chicken that haunts the forest, and drove many of his crew mad. Now, Clarence and his friends are in a race against their rival, Joshua Maverick, to find the buried treasure, while avoiding the chicken phantom!
