Cosplayers – A New Dash Shaw Comic From Fantagraphics With A Touch Of Adventure Time

cosplayers

Out in April comes Cosplayers, a new comic book one shot from cartoonist Dash Shaw.

Published by Fantagraphics, who last year also published New School, 3 Stories and more, it’s labelled a one shot with the description,

Annie and Verti are two teen cosplayers with too much time on their hands. Annie wants to act, and Verti wants to be a photographer/filmmaker. Together, they embark on making a film starring themselves and featuring an unsuspecting cast of extras they record via hidden camera. What could possibly go wrong? A one-shot dose of humor and melancholy from the creator of New School, BodyWorld, and The Bottomless Belly Button.

Adventure Time is, as we know, a perennial favourite of cosplayers for as long ago as, well, Adventure Time started pretty much. And here, to accompany the news, is a shot of Dash Shaw himself cosplaying with his wife Jane Samborski as characters from Body World.
