BOOM! Studios Launches BOOM! Box Imprint With Ryan North’s ‘Midas Flesh’ [Interview]

North01

Earlier this week we brought you the teaser hinting at Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb's new series from BOOM! Studios, and if you were wondering how long you'd have to wait to find out what it was, wonder no longer. Today, we know that the team behind the award-winning Adventure Time comic will soon be bringing you dinosaurs in spacesuits in the pages of Midas Flesh, a sci-fi comic about what would happen if King Midas's golden touch was a weapon of planetary destruction.

The book is the first project from BOOM! Box, a new imprint inspired by the largely webcomics talent the publisher recruited to staff its popular and acclaimed line of animation-based KaBOOM! comics including Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors and Regular Show. BOOM! Box is meant to be distinct from the existing BOOM! and KaBOOM! lines in that it will be fully original projects (as opposed to licensed) with no restrictions on format.

To find out more about Midas Flesh, we spoke to North about his inspiration for the comic, his process, why Paul Dini deserves a solid gold rocket car and, oddly enough, his favorite fetish videos on YouTube. Read on to find out!

BOOM! Announces A Story About A Dinosaur In A Spacesuit From The Creators Of The ‘Adventure Time’ Comic, Definitely Has Our Attention

BoomBox01

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.

Finn And Jake Deal With Some Kinda Nightmare World In ‘Adventure Time’ #19 [Preview]

AdventureTime_19_preview-main

Following the haunting "Finn the Human" episode of Adventure Time, many fans may have thought they'd never see the bleak "Farmland" timeline again. Leave it to Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb to not leave you hanging, though. A comparatively dour version of AT's last boy on Earth known as Finn Mertens a.k.a. "Farmland Finn" returned in the last issue of AT and his mechanical-armed adventures continue in  Adventure Time #19 on August 21. Things aren't exactly what they seem this time around, however, as both Finn and his best friend Jake the dog work together to overcome the weirdness of converging nightmare worlds.

Ryan North On ‘To Be Or Not To Be,’ ‘Adventure Time,’ And Why Books Where You Don’t Choose The Adventure Are For Babies

TBONTB00

You're probably already familiar with Ryan North as the creator of Dinosaur Comics or the author of BOOM!'s Eisner award-winning Adventure Time series -- or possibly as the writer of the world's most in-depth critique of the novelization of Back to the Future -- but thanks to Kickstarter, he has another line on his resume: An author who decided his first attempt at a novel should be improving Hamlet.

And just how do you improve Hamlet? Easy. You turn it into an 800-page Choose Your Own Adventure style gamebook and raise enough money to stock it with illustrations by amazing webcomic artists, and make sure to actually put the pirate battle in there this time. I talked to North about his approach to the book, why he wanted to try his hand at a chooseable-path adventure, and why he gave Ophelia a bonus to science.
