Over the Garden Wall is something that I haven’t had a chance to dive into as often as I’d like. From the hit Cartoon Network show, to the KaBOOM! one shots, I always got a taste of the fun series, but never got to fully induldge. Needless to say, I was beyond thrilled to see the comic reach ongoing series status! This week brings the release of Over the Garden Wall #1 from KaBOOM!, written by Jim Campbell, Danielle Burgos, Amalia Levari, with art by Campbell and Cara McGee.
The comic features two original stories in each issue. In the first issue, Greg returns to Dreamland at night, where the silly creatures who live there help him on his adventures. Then, dive back into the early days in the Unknown where young Anna, the daughter of the Woodsman, must learn to survive in the woods on her own. The first story definitely has a lighter tone with the quirky nature that fans love about Over the Garden Wall, and the second…well…I felt like it was the beginning of a poem. Still strange in nature, and I mean that in a good way, but unique and emotional. This panel in particular tugged at my heart strings…
I’d definitely recommend adding this new series to your pull list. Over the Garden Wall is a fun read that can be enjoyed by everyone.
