BOOM!'S BAGS (OR A STORY THEREOF)

BOOM! Studios has announced a July release for Bags (Or A Story Thereof), an original graphic novel by Patrick McHale, creator of the Emmy Award-winning Cartoon Network series Over The Garden Wall, artist Gavin Fullerton (Storyboard Artist, Disney;s Space Chickens in Space) and colorist Whitney Cogar (Steven Universe)

Here's how BOOM! describes the book:

"Bags (Or A Story Thereof) is the tale of John Motts. He is a man who had a dog, but now that dog is gone. John searches his house, his street, and his town, but the dog is nowhere to be found. John soon realizes that he must travel further, past the road and into the trees if hefs ever to find out the truth of what happened to his dog.

"Before making Over the Garden Wall, I tried to write a novel in one week and failed; instead I ended up with an odd, rather experimental story about a man looking for his missing dog. It's very exciting that my weird little book is being adapted into a full on graphic novel, and even more exciting that Gavin Fullerton is the one adapting it!," McHale said. "I'm extremely happy with what he's done with this story, and I hope other people like it too. Note: It has the Devil in it, and a walrus who puts things in bags, soc you might like it."

"I'm a huge fan of Patfs work, so I was incredibly excited when I was asked to adapt his short story Bags into a full-length graphic novel," Fullerton said. "Bags is sad, fun, spooky and a wee bit strange. It's the kind of story you come away from feeling a little less alone. I hope the comic can make people feel the same way."



BRIEFLY

BUFFY VARIANT: BOOM! Studios has unveiled Kevin Wada's variant cover to Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2. The issue, by Jordie Bellaire and Dan Mora, reaches stands on Feb. 13.

"Willow is one of the most important characters in pop culture history, and I'm thrilled that Jordie and Dan are able to reimagine her as a modern teenager," said Jeanine Schaefer, editor, BOOM! Studios. "Kevin perfectly captures the essence of Willow -- her joy, humor and warmth -- in a stunning new cover spotlighting everyone's favorite teenage witch."

SWAMP THING CASTING: For DC Universe's Swamp Thing series, Andy Bean will play Alec Holland, while Derek Mears will play the Swamp Thing he becomes.
