Kaboom, the kid-oriented imprint of Boom Studios, has a comic coming in Spring 2017 that looks perfect for anyone who loves MasterChef Junior almost as much as Gravity Falls. Brave Chef Brianna is written by fantasy author Sam Sykes with art by Selina Espiritu, and tells the story of Brianna Jakobsson, a talented chef who opens a restaurant in a city of monsters. It seems that was the only site she could afford, and she needs to prove herself to her father, who has set up a contest between her and her brothers.
But succeeding as a chef in Monster City means cooking what monsters want to eat, and that has to be a little intimidating for a decidedly non-monstrous human like Brianna.

Boom Studios has been publishing a plethora of Adventure Time comics for years now, and as totallly mathematical as they are, the tone and style typically sticks close to the TV show. Now, KaBoom is launching a new ongoing titled Adventure Time Comics, which sees some of the most vibrant and unique voices in comics taking a crack at the Land Of Ooo while retaining their own styles and sensibilities.
Ahead of the Adventure Time Comics' first issue later this month, Boom has provided us with a look at all six variant covers, including an exclusive first look at Stephanie Buscema's variant, available only at Fried Pie Comics.
Boom Studios' comic adaptions of Cartoon Network shows such as Adventure Time and Steven Universe, published through their KaBoom imprint, has resulted in some of the best all-ages comics in recent memory. Hot on the heels of a successful miniseries, this week sees the release of a brand new Over The Garden Wall ongoing series that delves into and fleshes out the world of the show.
The new series is split into two, with Jim Campbell --- who served as a storyboard artist on the cartoon --- contributing to the ongoing adventures of Greg and his frog Jason Funderburker, while Amalia Levari and Cara McGee uncover the story of Anna, The Woodsman's Daughter from the show. We caught up with Campbell to chat about adapting the series from animation to comics, the freedom the medium grants, and splitting up the brothers. Plus, Boom has provided us with an exclusive preview of Levari and McGee's story in Over The Garden Wall #1
Rebecca Sugar and Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe is one of the most heartwarming, beautiful shows on television, and the comics published via Boom Studios’ KaBOOM imprint have been an absolute hoot. Later this month sees the release of a brand new miniseries, Steven Universe and The Crystal Gems, and Fried Pie Comics has four exclusive variants from Missy Pena!
The variants display the Crystal Gems in a gorgeous art nouveau style, each getting their time to shine on their own solo cover. Steven, Pearl, Amythest and Garnet all look resplendent on covers that still manage to capture the tone and the style of the show perfectly.
This April, Boom Studios' all-ages imprint KaBoom is launching Over The Garden Wall as an ongoing series, written by Jim Campbell and show writer Amalia Levari, with art by Campbell and Cara McGee. Over the Garden Wall began life as an animated miniseries created by Patrick McHale for Cartoon Network, which led to a one-shot tie-in comic from Kaboom, which led in turn to a comic miniseries, and now this ongoing book.
In terms of sheer ubiquity, no comic strip matches Peanuts. I can’t remember Charlie Brown and Snoopy not being around. Neither can my parents or relatives. Peanuts is so omnipresent that it’s easy to forget how revolutionary the original strip actually was/
And the strip is inextricable from its creator, Charles M. Schulz, whose work has never been out of print — be it thanks to the Fantagraphics Complete Peanuts collections or the “Classic Peanuts” strips still running in newspapers. But over the past couple of years, Boom Studios has been releasing Peanuts comic books and original graphic novels that brings Schulz’s work to a format it was never really in before (except once), while adding stories by new creators who hope to honor Schulz’s work while incorporating their own takes on Chuck, Linus, Peppermint Patty, and the rest.
Cake is a cat on a mission in these preview pages for Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake: Card Wars #4. Don't mistake that aggressive showering and aggressive cereal eating for signs that she's not a morning cat; Cake has a Card Wars Championship to win. If you've ever been in any kind of tournament, you may recognize Cake's mix of grim determination and heart-wrenching anxiety.
Charles Schulz was a master humorist whose enormous Peanuts library will surely be remembered as one of the great works of the 20th century, and while he will never be replaced, I'm glad to see his work live on with new entry points for modern audiences that may help lead them back to his work.
One of those entry points is the Peanuts movie coming out in November. Another, aptly timed ahead of the movie's release, is next week's original graphic novel Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare, from Jason Cooper and Vicki Scott, published by Kaboom. It's a full-length Snoopy adventure that sees the hound in his World War I Flying Ace mode --- and therefore emboldened and no doubt headed for trouble. Check out an extended ten-page preview.
This August, Boom Studios is bringing us back to the weird world of Over The Garden Wall with a four-issue miniseries written by show creator Patrick McHale and illustrated by colorist and cartoonist Jim Campbell. Set between episodes three and four of the show, the miniseries promises more of the sort of old-timey curiosities that the show and last year's one-shot comic special delivered. Check out our exclusive five-page preview.
