Mr. Bean Gets A Comic From Dabel Bros In 2017

1500x1500_65264593d331be2332b6ec861133f9b28f2b73928b637ceffb94df03According to a report from ICv2, Dabel Brothers Publishing is working to bring a comic book to market based on the popular British comedy series Mr. Bean. Billed as a "graphic novel" series, the first issue will be illustrated by Ricardo Jaime, though no writer has been announced, and will hit stores next Spring.

Before getting a job at Bleeding Cool, in order to better understand the culture of Editor-in-Chief and Lead Rumormonger Rich Johnston, I watched all of the episodes of the Mr. Bean TV show, the animated series, and both the Bean and Mr. Bean's Holiday feature films. At the time, I assumed these were documentaries about the life of a typical British person, but as it turns out, they are actually meant to be comedy, showing the antics of a grown man with the disposition of a child, as played by Rowan Atkinson.

When it comes to Rich Johnston, however, they remain shockingly accurate.


About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
