Over five years ago, DC Comics ran a line-wide event called One Year Later. They later ran Future’s End: Five Years Later.
Well, anything DC Comics can do, Boom Studios things they can do five times better.
Regular Show: 25 Years Later is a new comic book mini-series by Deadpool’s Christopher Hastings and new artist Anna Johnstone, that will follow the conclusion to the Regular Show cartoon last year featuring a battle between Pops and Anti-Pops. Fans will get to find out what happened net to characters Mordecai, Rigby, and the rest and will now find out… just a little further down the line than they might have expected.
REGULAR SHOW: 25 YEARS LATER #1 features a main cover by JK Phan, with variant covers by Cole Closser (Adventure Time Comics) and Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes).
“I love the relative elegance of a Regular Show story. Start with a mundane problem, try to weasel out of it, and then plunge into madness,” said writer Christopher Hastings. “The characters are completely grounded, have real relationships with each other, and then you take them and stick them in the most bonkers, surreal, fantasy/sci-fi/horror/everything impossible scenarios you can think of. It’s a simple combo, but it gives you room for a countless amount of new stories. The tricky part was figuring out how to get the older and MUCH more mature Mordecai and Rigby to jump into that dance again. They’ve traded their insane adventures for family and career. Seeing how these wiser old pals handle the temptations of adventure will be a big part of the fun of this series, not to mention just catching up with all the other characters, seeing what’s changed in their lives, or what’s stayed the same.”
“When I got asked to work on the new Regular Show comic series I was super excited to meet the challenge,” said artist Anna Johnstone. “The show has a great sense of humour and as a fan I can’t wait to see what kinds of weird stuff they get up to ’25 years later’… plus the best part, I get to draw it!”
