Official Press Release
April 15, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA – KaBOOM!, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, is excited to announce the May debut of BEE AND PUPPYCAT #1 from fan-favorite creator Natasha Allegri (ADVENTURE TIME WITH FIONNA AND CAKE). After breaking the record for most funded web series on Kickstarter, this quirky take on the magical girl genre is coming to comics this May with co-writer Garrett Jackson and covers illustrated by Allegri, Zac Gorman (ADVENTURE TIME), Coleman Engle (BRAVEST WARRIORS), and Becky Dreistadt (ADVENTURE TIME).
“When Natasha and Frederator Studios put up the first ‘Bee and PuppyCat’ animated short last summer, we were instantly smitten, just like thousands of other fans,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Any opportunity to work with Natasha is a joy; ‘Bee and PuppyCat’ is a delightful (and hilarious!) series that readers of all ages can enjoy. And judging by the enormous fan response to the animated episodes, it’s sure to bring new readers to comics, which is one of our ongoing missions.”
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: It’s a quirky new take on the magical girl genre with Bee, the forever unemployed main character who can’t seem to figure out life, and the mysterious PuppyCat, a stray…whatever it is…that she stumbled across who has a powerful secret. Fighting bad guys has never been so funny.
BEE AND PUPPYCAT #1 arrives in comic shops on May 14th with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAR140984. Cover A by Natasha Allegri and Cover B by Zac Gorman will ship in a 50/50 intermix. Variant covers by Coleman Engle and Becky Dreistadt will be available in limited quantities.
