Don't you just hate it when your vacation turns into a time-loop addled adventure of mystery complete with corrupt cops? Modrecai and Rigby's immortal buddy and oftentimes mentor Skips does, and it's going to be plain to see next Wednesday, January 8 in Regular Show: Skips #3 by Mad Rupert and colorist Whitney Cogar. Featuring covers by Rupert, Corey Lewis (Sharknife), Paulina Ganucheau (Zodiac Starforce) and Michael DeForge (Ant Colony), the issue sees the plot thicken to molasses levels as the miniseries reach its halfway point.
Mad Rupert's Regular Show romp continues this Wednesday, December 11, with Regular Show: Skips #2 and things are about to get even more hectic for the book's immortal star. As hard as it is to watch the usually unflappable Skips succumb to stress, his crew of Mordecai, Rigby, Benson, Muscle Man, Pops and Hi-Five Ghost are going to be glad he's joined them on vacation as the strangeness plaguing their trip becomes more apparent. Or will they even be aware of his heroism? It's hard to say when Skips encounters a problem he can't say "I've seen this before" about.
Regular Show's super strong immortal sage (who just so happens to be voiced by Mark Hamill) is about to step into the comic book spotlight. This November Boom! Studios will roll out Regular Show: Skips #1, written and illustrated by Mad Rupert (Saskana, Adventure Time). Set to show the RS world from Skips' point of view, the story sees Pops reward Mordecai, Rigby and the rest of the crew with a mini-vacation for all their hard work at the park. Thanks to the antics of his coworkers, though, Skips probably won't quite get the rest and relaxation he deserves for bailing his buds out of trouble time and time again. ComicsAlliance got in touch with Rupert to learn more about what readers can expect in the issue, how the artist got into Regular Show, and just how much she loves pugs.
