AUGUST is nearly upon us. I want to congratulate each and every one of you for surviving a Trump presidency so long. And that goes for everyone around the world. America is a powerful….I guess we could call it “problem” at the moment….but let’s take our minds off that. Let’s talk comics. Let’s talk previews, something to look forward to! Let’s talk about what’s Coming From BOOM! Studios 8.2.2017!!! What you’ll find here are previews of interior art, covers, and synopses. Let’s get it on!
Adventure Time/Regular Show #1 (of 6) – Written by Connor McCreery, art by Mattia Di Meo
It’s a crossover for the ages in this mash-up of two of our favorite Cartoon Network shows!
When a powerful new villain threatens to conquer Adventure Time’s Ooo, Princess Bubblegum sends Finn and Jake on a desperate quest to find The Power that can save the land—a power that Skips from Regular Show just happens to be hiding!
Finn and Jake’s arrival only exacerbates an existing tension between Mordecai and Rigby, and the trip back to Ooo threatens to tear two sets of bros apart…forever.
Giant Days #29 – Written by John Allison, art by Max Sarin & Liz Fleming
Esther feels guilty when she befriends McGraw’s girlfriend and leaves Susan out in the cold, while Daisy thinks she’s found the perfect girl for Ed Gemmell.

Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1 – Written by Mark Evanier, art by Steve Uy
It’s the inevitable meeting of the sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning cynical cat of newspapers and TV, crosses paths with Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation whose scowl endeared herself to the world. Who’s the most sarcastic? Well, he likes lasagna and not much else…and she doesn’t even like lasagna. Can these two inhabit the same comic book mini-series, let alone the same planet? You’ll find out in a trio of issues written by Mark Evanier and illustrated by Steve Uy. We’d say it’s the cat’s meow but neither of these cats meows.
