Mike Kunkel's HEROBEAR AND THE KID Returns to Boom! Studios

Because we need more comics suitable for all ages, this summer we'll get a great new adventure.

My daughter is only nine-years-old and she's already becoming cynical when it comes to comics. Most of the all-ages titles she's enjoyed end up coming to an end. The good news is this June Boom! Studios is welcoming the Eisner Award-winning series, HEROBEAR AND THE KID to their KaBOOM! imprint. Mike Kunkel has a brand new adventure set for the HEROBEAR AND THE KID SPECIAL #1.

Remember when you went on your first trip to an amusement park? Remember the excitement and anticipation? When Tyler's class wins a contest, they get to go to the grand opening of...Dippityland! But before Tyler can enjoy the day, he and his best friend Herobear have to stop a gang of imposter mascots from kidnapping the park's creator, Walter Dippity. It's a race against time to stop them from stealing a magical drawing on display in the heart of the park and destroying Dippityland forever. Join in with cartoonist Mike Kunkel’s Eisner Award-winning HEROBEAR AND THE KID in a brand new adventure!
