Steven Universe is getting a new 5-issue mini-series in August from S.M. Vidaurri and Mollie Rose. Called Steven Universe: Harmony, the new series will also feature covers by Marguerite Sauvage, Savanna Ganucheau, and Veronica Fish.
As Steven helps Sadie cope with quitting her job at the Big Donut and losing Lars, Steven and the Gems must work together to deactivate an old Diamond Authority artifact called the Harmony Core before it destroys Earth.
And the obligatory press release quotes from writer Vidaurri…
STEVEN UNIVERSE: HARMONY was inspired by the beautiful world that Rebecca Sugar created, and the incredible music. I was in bands in middle school and high school, and I remember how high-stakes things felt. So when Sadie Killer and the Suspects was introduced, I was smitten. I wanted to write a story that balanced Steven’s gem related capers with his playing in a band. Because both feel like they could be the end of the world if something goes wrong.
…and artist Rose:
I’ve been following Rebecca Sugar’s work for nearly a decade and Steven Universe since the beginning. Rebecca’s work was really influential for me when I was a teen, especially her comics (I have a treasured copy of Pug Davis), so working on this is definitely a really cool opportunity. I’ve always admired Steven Universe’s dedication to creating complex and diverse characters and worlds, and getting to be a part of that universe is really exciting!
Look for this in stores in August from BOOM!’s explosive-themed KaBOOM! imprint.
