This week sees a Rainbow Brite comic book launch from Jeremy Whitley and Brittney Williams. And for those taking notes, this is the first time we’ve ever gotten a Rainbow Brite origin story. In all the other versions, she’s fully formed when the story starts.
I asked Jeremy for a secret about the first issue and he told me that although they ended up going a different way, Hallmark suggested early on that if they wanted to, they could have made Rainbow Brite something other than human.
But he told a lot more to one special YouTuber for an hour and a quarter, crunched over to fit into her personal space…
Jeremy is certainly a comic book trooper… here’s the solicit and a preview. Out on Wednesday…
