The shift from summer to fall brings with it scarves, hoodies, pumpkin spice... everything and, for Boom! Studios, special comic book covers and prints. Yes, New York Comic Con 2013 is nearly upon us, and Boom! is prepared with a lineup of exclusives that will be available at Booth 1344 come October 10-13. In anticipation, Boom! has given ComicsAlliance a first-look at all of its NYCC Adventure Time, Sons of Anarchy, Polarity, Day Men and The Midas Flesh offerings. Click through for a full look at the entire lineup of Boom!, Kaboom! and new Boom! Box items.
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!
