Oni Announces ‘Yo Gabba Gabba!’ Comic Anthology [C2E2]
arguably hippest DJ and his magical buddies are picking up their boombox and kicking it in comics this fall. Oni Press and W!LDBRAIN Entertainment announced today at C2E2 that DJ Lance Rock, Brobee, Muno, Toodee, Foofa and Plex and more will all arrive in a full-color 128 page hardcover anthology.
The first of what Oni plans to be many anthologies, “Yo Gabba Gabba! Story Comic Book Time Vol. 1,” will feature a variety of creators from around the industry. Oni previewed art from Vicente “Vinny” Navarrete (“Dear Dracula”), YGG director Parker Jacobs, Matthew Loux (“Salt Water Taffy”), Julia Vickerman, Shawn Crystal and Dave McCaig. Given that the popularity of the show with the comics crowd’s kids, I suspect fans will recognize more names when the full creative announcement comes.
“You should watch the show even if you don’t have kids, this show is fantastic,” said Oni’s Cory Casoni, who affirmed the comic’s all-ages format stating, “The first anthology is absolutely something you can read to your kids.”
