Courtesy of Viking Books for Young Readers, Bleeding Cool has an exclusive first look at the cover and inside the upcoming Last Kids on Earth title, Thrilling Tales From The Treehouse, for publication on the 6th of April, 2021. Part of the series of bestselling Last Kids on Earth books written by Max Brallier, this is the first graphic novel in the series, an anthology with six stories by Brallier and art from regular Last Kids on Earth series illustrator Douglas Holgate, as well as comic book artists Jay Cooper, Anoosha Syed, Lorena Alvarez, Christopher Mitten, and Xavier Bonet.
The kids and their monster buddies are hanging out in the tree house, when Jack launches into an epic, totally-heroic, super rad story of one of his many post-apocalyptic adventures. Of course, after he's finished, everyone's eager to one-up his tale with a story of their own. Soon, Quint, Dirk, June and Skaelka, and even Globlet regale the group with sometimes outrageous, often hilarious details of their action-packed escapades during the monster-zombie apocalypse. Their stories are capped off by a special double-length feature which will finally reveal the mysterious whereabouts of two villainous villains to prep readers for the 7th book in the series coming Fall 2021!
The novels currently have over five million copies in print, helped along by the Netflix animated Last Kids on Earth series, which recently celebrated their Daytime Emmy Win for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program with the third season dropping last Friday. Earlier this year, a toy line for the show was released and in 2021 kids everywhere can earn their own Feat of Apocalyptic Success with a video game.
