It looks like Beth of the Bravest Warriors may just prove herself the most relatable member of the team in next week's Boom! Studios issue. You see, in Bravest Warriors #15, the heroine comes across a box of her childhood toys. At first she contemplates cleaning house by donating them (a fine idea!), but then? She reminds herself why action figures perhaps the greatest technical/spiritual achievement in the history of humankind. Ryan Pequin makes it all clear in his "Childish Things" short by Whitney Cogar, followed by a "Food Court" tale by Coleman Engle and a "Danny Divided" story by Tessa Stone. Boom! has provided us with a first look at the issue, with fives full pages of Pequin's short. Click through and prepare to hold your action figures tight.

Pen Ward's surprisingly well-adjusted teens from the year 3085 look like they'll be cutting loose on October 23 in Bravest Warriors #13. Writer Eric M. Esquivel, artist Mike Holmes, colorist Lisa Moore, and letterer Steve Wands pit the team against the fierce "Periodic Table of Evil" on page one, and don't let up from there with a plot that involves Danny experimenting with insect poison during a perilous vision quest. You know, the usual kind of deal. Boom! Studios has provided CA with a first look at the latest assembly of adventure, which you can click through to preview in full.
Pendleton Ward's Bravest Warriors have been known to flex some muscle in their Cartoon Hangover animated adventures and comic books from Boom! Studios, but fans will soon be able to take over for the futuristic (and emotional) teens with a line of bendies from Pop Culture Shock Toys. Rubber and wire-based versions of Chris, Beth, Wallow and Danny were all on display at booth #1454 this weekend at New York City Comic Con 2013 with an estimated release in the first quarter of 2014 at $9.99 a piece. Sadly, there's no Catbug or Impossibear Bendie... yet, but there are some plush and bobblehead options for both characters on the way from Pop Culture Shock coming next year.
Between the talents of writer Joey Comeau, artist Mike Holmes and cover artists Tyson Hesse, Kory Bing, Ian McGinty and Jongmee Kim, Boom! Studios is hardly has to twist anyone's arm to read its ongoing all-ages Bravest Warriors comic. Still, if they want to promise more Catbug in Bravest Warriors #13, well, that should suit everyone with a heart just fine. Boom! has provided CA with a first look at the upcoming October issue, along with the promise of more page time for perhaps the cutest new character from the year 3085.

While season two of Bravest Warriors has only recently been confirmed to be in the works at Cartoon Hangover, Boom! Studios continues to kick out its monthly comic jams for fans of the show by Joey Comeau and Mike Holmes. This September the duo arrives at a full year of teamwork with Bravest Warriors #12, featuring covers by Tyson Hesse, Joanna Estep, Alec Longstreth and Michelle Czajkowski serving as something of a first birthday present for the series. Whether the team's huddling, dodging lasers, cruising on hoverboards or having their action figure selves played with by Catbug, it's easy to see how the Bravest Warriors having a rad time under the collaboration of Comeau, Holmes and the rest of the BW team has translated into fans having an even radder time over the past year.
