FIRST LOOK: Boom! brings us Over the Garden Wall: Circus Friends the graphic novel

September 6th, 2019 by Marc Comments

BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at Over the Garden Wall: Circus Friends, a brand new original graphic novel set in the world inspired by the Emmy Award-winning Cartoon Network animated series, Over The Garden Wall.

Writer Jonathan Case (Over the Garden Wall: Distillatoria) and artist John Golden follow Greg, Wirt, and Beatrice as they circle ever deeper into The Unknown on their search for a path home and instead stumble upon a distraught strongman and clown who have run away from their circus (due to artistic differences). But when they follow the two disgraced performers back to the big top, Greg and Wirt lose Beatrice to the greedy Ringmaster who’s found his newest act: a talking bird! The boys will have to team up with the reluctant circus acts to save Beatrice and escape the clutches of the biggest show in the Unknown!

Over the Garden Wall: Circus Friends is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning KaBOOM! imprint, home to comics for middle grade and younger readers including licensed series such as Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Regular Show, Ben 10, and Over The Garden Wall, along with original series like Just Beyond: The Scare School by R.L. Stine and Kelly & Nichole Matthews, Hex Vet by Sam Davies, RuinWorld by Derek Laufman,  Hotel Dare by Terry Blas and Claudia Aguirre, and Pandora’s Legacy by Kara Leopard and Kelly & Nichole Matthews.

Print copies of Over the Garden Wall: Circus Friends will be available for sale on October 2, 2019 at local comic book shops

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
