The Angry Birds. The green pigs. Two factions locked in never-ending combat. Their enduring stories of sacrifice and struggle have captured the hearts and imaginations of the world. We know their suffering. We are them. Now, those stories can be further told in comic form.

Indeed, IDW Publishing has announced it’s teaming up with developers Rovio to make Angry Birds a comic that will debut this June with stories from writers including Jeff Parker (Batman ’66) and Paul Tobin (Bandette).

“The Angry Birds comics are a perfect way of getting to know the characters, their personalities, and their world more closely. I hope that readers of all ages will have fun with these comics by top-notch creators,” Jukka Heiskanen, Rovio’s Editor-In-Chief of Comics, said in an IDW press release.

IDW CEO and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall added, “Rovio has taken what was once a captivating game and built it into an interesting world filled with interesting and, uh, feathered characters who will make a perfect addition to our growing line of fun, all-ages comics.”

Angry Birds‘ transition from mobile game to comic actually shouldn’t be too huge of a step. Before going fully animated with their cutscenes, Rovio included cutscenes that told the birds’ story with what basically amounted to dialogue-free comics in their games, particularly in Angry Birds Rio.
