Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt have established themselves as a creative team who excel at making a lighthearted, adorable comics with their work on Tiny Kitten Teeth and their Little Golden Book-esque publication of Tigerbuttah. In 2013, they were part of a crowdfunding campaign with Benign Kingdom for an art book titled Capture Creatures, which is launching this week as a new comic book series from Boom! Studios.
After giving the first issue a read, I had a quick chat with Frank about the book to learn more about the inspiration and thought behind Capture Creatures.
It is a matter of public record that I love Pokémon in all its various forms, to the point where my biggest problem is that even with 700 of them in the official games, there just aren't enough. That's why I really love Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson's Capture Creatures, which started on the web as a project for the team behind Tiny Kitten Teeth to design their own pocket monsters, complete with evolutions.
Now, with 143 entries in their Creaturedex and a successful Kickstarter-funded art book under the creators' belts, Boom! Studios has announced an ongoing series based on Capture Creatures,where Gibson and Dreistadt will take their creations from the designs and stats of the website to a brand new story.
Tiny Kitten Teeth creators Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt are no stranger to Adventure Time, having lent their talents to a number of Boom!'s all-ages books, but they always manage to leave their Becky & Frank mark. This Wednesday in Adventure Time Annual #1 the duo does it again with a special horizontally-oriented storyline that gives their whimsical, painted take on Fionna and Cake all the room it needs to breathe -- and it's going to need room because this comic winds back the clock to see just how the future heroes of Ooo behaved as kids.
Following news of its first look deal with Cartoon Network, Boom! Studios has officially announced its first new animation adaptation to follow the launch of Steven Universe. The Amazing World of Gumball#1 is set to arrive in June from through the all-ages Kaboom! imprint, featuring a 32-page story by writer Frank Gibson and artist Tyson Hesse.
Since the name of Boom's Adventure Time comic book game is getting even wilder than usual on its miniseries and special issues, it's hard to say that their upcoming annual is a complete 180 from what's come before. But will turn a full 90 degrees. Seriously.
This April the Adventure Time 2014 Annual by the Tiny Kitten Teeth team of Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt is flipping the series horizontal for a special widescreen installment, which should help to fit in Dreistadt's fully painted take on none other than Baby Fionna and Cake.
Every year around this time, shops and advertisers start harshing the collective mellow of millions of youngsters by rolling out back-to-school gear. But have heart, students! There's still several weeks of summer left and you can readily savor the spirit of fun-in-the-sun with next Wednesday's Adventure Time: Summer Special 2013 #1. Containing stories by Noelle Stevenson, Ryan Pequin, Emily Partridge and the team of Frank Gibson and Becky Dreisdat, the issue promises sunburnless stories starring heroes who are on an eternal summer vacation (although Finn could probably use some math lessons, if we're all being honest with ourselves). Boom! has provided us with an early look at the special issue, and you can read it all after the jump.
It's been awhile since we checked in on Chris Yates' artful line of handcrafted puzzles and it seems we discovered a new wave his Baffler comic creator collaborations not a minute too soon. Actually, in a sense, we're several hundred minutes too late! You see, the eBay auctions just wrapped for Yates' latest Baf
It looks like the mysterious teaser image of the female versions of Adventure Time's Finn and Jake that Boom! Studios sent us on Monday was indeed the sign of an ambitious project. Inspired by the intensely popular AT episode "Fionna & Cake," Boom! Studios is launching a full
Pendelton Ward's Adventure Time animated series is beloved in its usual form by viewers, cosplayers and readers of Boom! Studios monthly comic book series, but season three's episode "Fionna and Cake," which reversed the cast's genders (and in Jake's case, species) is arguably the most popular. With this in mind, B
It's not every day a sentient hot dog that looks like an actual dog turns... three? That's why Princess Bubblegum, Lumpy Space Princess and other esteemed royal ladies of the Land of Ooo have come together in "Happy Birthday Hot Dog Princess," a special backup story by Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt running in Adventure Time #8.
