The KaBOOM!, imprint of BOOM! Studios, and Cartoon Network Enterprises, have some exciting Over the Garden Wall news. Patrick McHale and Jim Campbell have teamed up once again for a new, four-issue Over the Garden Wall limited comic series.
Last November, Cartoon Network debuted McHale's eerily sweet Over the Garden Wall, its first original animated miniseries, about half-brothers Wirt and Greg trying to find their way home. KaBOOM! published a companion one-shot that was eagerly snapped up by fans, selling out immediately.
Headlined by an all-star voice-cast that includes Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Collin Dean (The War at Home), and Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men), Over the Garden Wall is Cartoon Network's first-ever animated miniseries, an animated comedy/fantasy story about two brothers, Wirt and Greg, who are trapped in a mysterious world.
BOOM! Studios President of Publishing and Marketing, Filip Sablik spoke about the project by saying:
We are incredibly excited to dive back into the unknown with Patrick and Jim. We adored the Over the Garden Wall animated miniseries here at BOOM!, and this new limited series will allow us to explore even more adventures with Wirt, Greg, the Woodsman, and all our favorite characters.
This new limited comic series follows Wirt and Greg who are trying to hitch a ride out of schooltown but end up having to walk. Soon, they come upon two girls playing, and wind up having to keep them entertained so that they don't wake their giant father! The story takes place between episodes 3 and 4 of the series. Honestly, I keep hearing so many wonderful things about this show. I constantly gravitate towards an art style like this, and would really like to binge watch the show sometime. Over the Garden Wall #1 (of 4) arrives in comic shops on August 26th.
