Media Release — Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is most honored to announce the excellent return of the most outstanding time-travelers of the ’80s and ’90s in Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return. Taking part in Bill & Ted’s non-heinous return to comics is accomplished wordsmith Brian Lynch (TMNT: Microseries, Angel: After the Fall, screenwriter of the Despicable Me spin-off feature film, Minions) and stellar illuminator of fine comics Jerry Gaylord (Fanboys Vs. Zombies). There will also be totally resplendent back-up stories in each issue, including a short by the excellent Ryan North (Adventure Time, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and non-bogus artist dude Ian McGinty (Bravest Warriors, Munchkin) in issue #1.
“San Dimas, California’s favorite sons, Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan, are making a most triumphant return to comics—and the telephone booth—this March,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Brian’s scripts are hilarious and Jerry’s art channels all the magic of Bill and Ted’s first excellent adventure. We couldn’t be happier! This series is going to rock as hard as the Wyld Stallyns.”
Following the time-traveling historic epic of Excellent Adventure and the turbulent life and death of Bogus Journey, Bill and Ted must now fulfill their destiny as the inspiration for galactic harmony! How can someone hate the Wyld Stallyns as much as the evil Chuck De Nomolos? With the power of time travel, Bill and Ted set their sights on turning a young 27th-century Nomolos’ non-non-heinous attitude into something most outstanding and metal! Plus, each story will have a back-up adventure!
Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return #1 arrives in comic shops on March 11th with a main cover by Felipe Smith (Ghost Rider) for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code JAN151113. Also available in a limited quantity are a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Trevor Hairsine (Captain America, Eternal Warrior), a retailer incentive cover by Goñi Montes (RoboCop), and a just added 10K Variant cover by Rob Guillory (Chew).
