Media Release — This November, KaBOOM! Studios, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, launches REGULAR SHOW: SKIPS, an all-new, all-ages limited series comic based on the successful Cartoon Network comedy created by JG Quintel.
REGULAR SHOW: SKIPS spins out of the main REGULAR SHOW comic series and shines the spotlight on the mysterious yeti groundskeeper. Written and drawn by Mad Rupert (REGULAR SHOW, ADVENTURE TIME), REGULAR SHOW: SKIPS #1 will ship with main covers by Rupert and Kel McDonald (ADVENTURE TIME, Fame and Misfortune) along with variant covers by Mia Schwartz and Tessa Stone (Hanna Is Not a Boy’s Name).
WHY WE LOVE IT: No one is more mysterious in the crazy world of REGULAR SHOW than Skips, the park’s enigmatic yeti groundskeeper who always seems to know what’s going on. Finally, we get to see the world from his point of view.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Because you know that REGULAR SHOW is anything but ordinary…and newcomer Mad Rupert has crafted a comic that is extraordinary.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT: Pops decides to take the team on a mini-vacation for all the good work they’ve done. Little does Skips know, this vacation is not going to be a restful one…
REGULAR SHOW: SKIPS #1 will arrive in stores on November 6th and carries a retail price of $3.99 under Diamond order code SEP131018. It’s also available for pre-order directly from boom-studios.com.
