Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios has announced a new middle-grade OGN by writer CB Lee and artist Mattia Di Meo for Summer 2019. Ben 10: For Science! will be published as part of BOOM!'s KaBOOM! imprint for young readers, and is the second in a series of graphic novels produced in partnership with Cartoon Network, with the first, Ben 10: The Truth is Out There, by Lee and Lidan Chen, hitting stores in March.
A press release contains more details:
Ben 10 tells the story of fun loving, 10-year-old, Ben Tennyson, his cousin Gwen and Grandpa Max, as they discover new adventures around every corner. Once Ben finds the Omnitrix, a mysterious watch that transforms him into 10 different heroic aliens, a world of extraterrestrial superpowers opens up to him. Ben 10 is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment.
In BEN 10: FOR SCIENCE!, from Rainbow Award-winning writer CB Lee (Not Your Sidekick) and artist Mattia Di Meo (Adventure Time/Regular Show), a science camp is attacked by a mysterious threat and Ben and Gwen must go undercover as campers to find out who or what is responsible. To have any chance of saving the day, they'll need to follow the grisly trail of science experiments gone wrong.
I'm so excited to bring Ben and Gwen to the dynamic world of discovery in FOR SCIENCE! As they go undercover at a science camp to investigate monster rumors, they get swept up in making new friends and learning the wonders of space, robotics and more!
And Di Meo:
I can't wait to start this new adventure with BEN 10! Ben and his family are such strong characters, so it's a treat to bring them to life…along with robots and space aliens. What else could I ask for?
Ben 10: For Science! hits stores in July 2019.
