Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios trolled its customers Thursday by releasing a preview of an upcoming quote book with no actual quotes in the preview. The Quotable Giant Days, by writer John Allison and artist Max Sarin, purports to collect " a mixture of witty and humorous quotes" from the series, but all we get in this preview are pictures with no words. Hopefully, this is just a practical joke and the book will actually deliver on the promised quotes.
"…", said BOOM! studios when asked for comment, continuing to play games with us.
The Quotable Giant Days goes on sale in July. Check out the press release and preview below.
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 27, 2020) – BOOM!
