New Cartoon Network Comics from Boom! Studios on the Way


Cartoon Network Enterprises and publisher BOOM! Studios have recently signed a new first look deal, which will pave the way for a line of comic book and graphic novels based on Cartoon Network’s library of original comedies.

The first look deal builds upon the two companies’ current relationship, which has already led to several award-winning titles based on Cartoon Networks’ most popular shows, including Adventure Time and The Regular Show.

The next property that will be adapted into comic book form is Rebecca Sugar’s Steven Universe, which focuses on a boy who has become the newest, youngest, and only male member of the magical Guardians of the Universe. The Steven Universe comic will debut as a monthly comic series in August.

“The Adventure Time and Regular Show comic book series have become all-ages successes as a direct result of our strong partnership with BOOM! and its ability to tap talented artists that bring our brands to life into comics,” said Pete Yoder, VP of consumer products, North America for Cartoon Network Enterprises. “As we grow our roster of original comedies, it’s a great opportunity to expand our relationship with BOOM! and allow us to build on this strong success with additional brands debuting later this year.”

“Our partners at Cartoon Network have a stellar lineup of new shows that we are looking forward to publish as equally stellar all-ages comics, following the tremendous success of Adventure Time and Regular Show,” said BOOM! Studios Founder and CEO Ross Richie. “Steven Universe has that same edginess that will resonate with readers—and that’s just the beginning.”
