Humankind's understanding of sleep has come a long way in the year 3085, but even so, there's plenty of complexities to consider when navigating the Dream Dimension. That's the trouble Wallow faces in Bravest Warriors #16, which arrives in stores and on digital platforms from Boom! Studios on January 22nd. In a tale written by Tessa Stone and illustrated by Mike Holmes, Bravest Warriors team leader Chris is discovered to be the inadvertent host of an alien parasite known as a Dreamadon. Dreamadon? More like Drama-don! You can see what Wallow and Chris are up against -- along with BW covers by Tyson Hesse, Terry Blas, Jason Adams and Ian Bertram -- in our first-look at the issue, after the jump.
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.
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.
It seems like just yesterday that Boom! Studios had announced a miniseries for Adventure Time creator Pendelton Ward's Cartoon Hangover show Bravest Warriors, but its popularity merited an almost instant upgrade to full-fledged ongoing and now the book's nearing its tenth issue and first trade paperback collection...
Bodysnatching bad guys are traditionally depicted as germs, viruses, bugs, worms and other less-than-lovely corruptors. In Ryan Pequin and colorist Mirka Andolfo's Bravest Warriors #5 backup, "Cute Calamity," however, the team may be up against a much more cuddly threat when the huge-hearted Wallow adopts a pet of unknown alien origins...
