KaBOOM!, the all-ages imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, is excited to announce the April debut of a special comic. A collection of talented creators including Steven Universe creative team Jeremy Sorese and Coleman Engle, Liz Prince (Tomboy), Grace Kraft (Steven Universe), Kelly Turnbull (Monster High), Rachel Dukes (Garfield), and Chrystin Garland (Bee & PuppyCat) are coming together to bring us Steven Universe: Greg Universe Special #1. Based on Cartoon Network's hit original series, the issue will feature multiple stories that include tons of father-and-son fun, as Greg teaches Steven some valuable life lessons.
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon spoke about the Steven Universe special issue:
The Steven Universe animated series never stops outdoing itself, consistently delivering powerful characters and deeply moving stories. That's exactly the type of storytelling we strive to stay true to in the comics. For this special issue we wanted to focus a little more on the relationship between Greg and Steven; even though Greg doesn't have Gem powers, he's still one of the most important people in Steven's life, and the bond between father and son presents its own kind of magic.
While I haven't jumped on the Steven Universe bandwagon, I do participate in reading tons of BOOM! Studios titles. Out of all of the books I read, one thing is for sure: they are an outstanding publisher. Besides, Steven Universe is an iconic character, and it looks like this special issue will be a treat for fans. Steven Universe: Greg Universe Special #1 will be available on April 29th. The main cover will be illustrated by Ru Xu (Steven Universe) and there will also be an incentive cover by Fellipe Martins (Regular Show).
