Boom! Studios and Carton Network have announced the upcoming launch of Regular Show: 25 Years Later, an all-new six-issue limited comic book series inspired by the Emmy Award-winning animated series.
“I love the relative elegance of a Regular Show story. Start with a mundane problem, try to weasel out of it, and then plunge into madness,” said writer Christopher Hastings. “The characters are completely grounded, have real relationships with each other, and then you take them and stick them in the most bonkers, surreal, fantasy/sci-fi/horror/everything impossible scenarios you can think of. It’s a simple combo, but it gives you room for a countless amount of new stories. The tricky part was figuring out how to get the older and MUCH more mature Mordecai and Rigby to jump into that dance again. They’ve traded their insane adventures for family and career. Seeing how these wiser old pals handle the temptations of adventure will be a big part of the fun of this series, not to mention just catching up with all the other characters, seeing what’s changed in their lives, or what’s stayed the same.”
“When I got asked to work on the new Regular Show comic series I was super excited to meet the challenge,” added artist Anna Johnstone. “The show has a great sense of humour and as a fan I can’t wait to see what kinds of weird stuff they get up to ’25 years later’… plus the best part, I get to draw it!”
After the stunning conclusion to the landmark Regular Show on Cartoon Network in January 2017 featuring an epic battle between Pops and Anti-Pops, fans have been wondering what’s next for Mordecai, Rigby, and the rest of the park – and now BOOM! Studios has the answer! Journey 25 years into the future with acclaimed writer Christopher Hastings (Deadpool) and the debut of artist Anna Johnstone, as Mordecai and Rigby have a lot to learn about how things never stay the same…
Regular Show: 25 Years Later #1 will go on sale in June.
