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.

No Caption Provided

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!

No Caption Provided

The special is on sale June 5, 2013. It will ship with an all-new full color cover and is available for order under the Diamond code APR130954. Be sure to let your comic shop know you must have this. You can also ask about the Animation Cell Variant and the rare Mike Kunkel Hand-Sketch Variant.

Stay tuned for more.

Shoot, why couldn't this be available already in time for Kunkel's appearance at Long Beach Comic Expo? I'm heading there this weekend! Ah well, I'll take a look at this when its out regardless.
