Between its Superbook and Sailor Moon-inspired aesthetic, hearty humor and intriguing premise, it's not hard to see why Natasha Allegri's two Bee and PuppyCat shorts from Frederator's Cartoon Hangover have amassed more than 4 million views online over the past few months. With fan demand fully in tow, Cartoon Hangover has turned to Kickstarter to expedite the creation of six (or more, according to stretch goals) new 6-minute installments set to start rolling out by the summer of 2014. Should backers succeed in funding the project, they won't just get more cartoons to watch. Rewards include a Bee and PuppyCat #1 comic book, with certain backing levels indicating that the series could run long enough to supply two years' worth of collected editions.

If you've read ComicsAlliance comments for any amount of time, you'll know that if nothing else, we are bitter, jaded (hipster???) dinosaurs. As a result, it may seem rare that we get excited about something like a variant cover or a convention exclusive, unless it's something pretty, pretty awesome. Fortunately for our tiny, blackened hearts, that exact thing happened today when Boom! Studios revealed their Baltimore Comic-Con variants for Garfield #17 and RoboCop: The Last Stand #1.
Yeah, that's right: We're excited about Garfield on a Monday. See why in the full-sized image below!
Check out all the links from Monday after the cut.
Here at ComicsAlliance, we were already pretty big fans of Natasha Allegri thanks to her amazing art and her work on Adventure Time, where she created the female version of Finn, Fionna - the most cosplayable character of the past five years (and wrote and illustrated Boom!'s Fionna and Cake comic miniseries). Now, we've been given another reason why her work's amazing in the form of Bee and PuppyCat, a new series from Cartoon Hangover about an unemployed young lady who gets a strange new pet dropped on her head and enters into a world of transformation sequences and rainbow swordfights. The second episode dropped this week, and I can confirm that it is most definitely the single best five-minute Magical Girl cartoon series currently airing on YouTube.
Uh, in retrospect, that's kind of a narrow category. Just trust me, it's great, and you can watch the first two episodes below!
The silent battle of superiority between "Cat People" and "Dog People" has just been won with Cartoon Hangover's release of the "Bee and PuppyCat" trailer. Neither dog nor cat, but perhaps both simultaneously, Natasha Allegri's adorable hybrid and its human companion will officially begin captivating those who favor furry friends of any variety on July 11.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
