BOOM! Announces A Story About A Dinosaur In A Spacesuit From The Creators Of The ‘Adventure Time’ Comic, Definitely Has Our Attention
Here’s a peek behind the scenes for any of you wondering what the glamorous jet-set life of someone who sits around reading comic books for a living: You get a lot of press releases. I think there was one week before San Diego where I was getting 40 of those things every day, which is well past what I would consider critical mass for PR. What I’m getting at here is that with so many press releases coming across the desk, it takes a lot to get me excited about them.
And then you get one where Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb, the award-winning team behind the Adventure Time comic, are doing a story about a dinosaur in a spacesuit. And now you have my attention.
North, of course, is no stranger to the world of dinosaurs doing (and wearing) things that dinosaurs usually do not do (or wear), having been the creator of the amazing Dinosaur Comics for the past ten years. Similarly, he’s no stranger to spacesuits having worked on Galaga at ShiftyLook. Recent wins at the Eisner and Harvey awards have shown us that Paroline and Lamb work pretty darn well with him, too, meaning this mystery comic stands a good chance of suiting fans just fine.
As a fan of this team, this is definitely something that I want to see. Stay tuned for more information as this story of spacesuited dinosaurs develops.
