Natasha Allegri is leading a movement. A quiet, earnest, doe-eyed movement to be sure, but one that is unstoppable, and unquestioningly vital. Bee and Puppycat, her already widely beloved series produced for Frederator's Cartoon Hangover channel, is about to relaunch, to widespread fan salivation. Her social media accounts swell with more and more followers every day. Puppycat plushes and inflatable swords were everywhere at San Diego Comic-Con, as was cosplay and fan art.
Allegri's work, in its sincere, unfailingly sweet way, has announced to the world that animation aimed at an adult (or at least teen) female audience is not just viable — it is a verified path to critical and commercial success. ComicsAlliance sat down with her at SDCC to discuss her success, the importance of cuteness, and what we can expect from the new Bee and Puppycat animated series.
When Boom! filled us in that Adventure Time head writer Kent Osbornewould be teaming with Regular Show: Skips artist Mad Rupert for a new series in July that'd include the show's recently-introduced Root Beer Guy, I was intrigued. When the title of the book was revealed to beAdventure Time: Banana Guard Academy, I was ecstatic. I finally had a reason to make someone answer a question relating to the Police Academy franchise! Fortunately for ComicsAlliance, Kent is a very good sport. Read on to learn about how Kent crossed over from the world of AT animation into comics, who some of his favorite creators are, and how Tony Hawk fits into it all.
A number of the Adventure Time animated series' most popular supporting characters have taken the spotlight across Boom! Studios' numerous comic book miniseries and backup stories, but only one hero could pull series head writer Kent Osborne from the show to its comic book incarnation: Root Beer Guy. Well, him and the Candy Kingdom's collective Banana Guard police force, anyway. This July Osborne makes his AT comic debut alongside artist Mad Rupert (Regular Show: Skips) for Adventure Time: Banana Guard Academy #1, the first of a six-issue miniseries exploring the world of law and order in Ooo.
