Explosive publisher BOOM!

More from the press release:
Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max head to a beautiful seaside resort for some much-needed relaxation – but they'll need to use all their abilities to defeat the terrifying monster ruining everyone's good time! Luckily, Ben Tennyson isn't your average 10-year-old…he's also the wielder of the Omnitrix, an alien device that allows Ben to shift into 10 different alien forms from around the galaxy. Together with his cousin Gwen and his Grandpa Max, they're going defeat the Sharktopus and discover just who would want to ruin a good summer's day!
And a quote from CB Lee:
Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max head to Serenity Shore looking forward to sand, surf and the promised serenity–but what they find is a mysterious tentacled creature prowling in the deep and secrets to uncover from the mysterious lab overlooking the cliffs. THE CREATURE FROM SERENITY SHORE is all about working with your fears and doing your best in the face of challenges, and I had such a blast working on this summer adventure!
And di Meo:
This is my second time on a BEN 10™ adventure, and I'm so glad of it! Drawing monsters and aliens is never boring and I really love the Tennyson family! In this story we have the sea, summer, friends, tentacles, fangs and aliens, of course. It was amazing to draw! And working again with the team made up of C. B. Lee as writer and Eleonora Bruni as colorist was the icing on the cake.
Look for Ben 1o: The Creature from Serenity Shore in stores in July 2020.
