Go "Over the Garden Wall" and visit Hollow Town in a new series from BOOM! Studios
The beloved heroes of Cartoon Network's Over the Garden Wall get a new comic series from BOOM ! Studios this fall. Titled Over the Garden Wall: Hollow Town, the comic will see series regulars Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice embark on a new adventure in the mysterious Hollow Town. Hollow Town, it should be noted, is a town populated entirely by porcelain glass figures, and... yeah, that sounds pretty terrifying.
It's an all ages romp, though, so maybe it won't be too creepy.
Then again, porcelain dolls can be pretty unsettling...
...let's... let's just check out the fun preview, shall we?
BOOM! Studios Announces
OVER THE GARDEN WALL:
Return To The Unknown with Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice in September 2018
Los Angeles, CA (June 15, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to announce OVER THE GARDEN WALL: HOLLOW TOWN #1, beginning a new five issue limited series set in the world inspired by the Emmy® Award-winning Cartoon Network animated series Over The Garden Wall.
Writer Celia Lowenthal (The Storyteller: Fairies) and artist Jorge Monlongo (Powerpuff Girls, Rugrats) send Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice on an all-new adventure in the Unknown as they stumble on a small town inhabited entirely by eerie porcelain doll-people. After Greg loses a shoe to a pond-turtle, it’s up to Wirt to earn money for a new pair, leading him to babysit some doll-children that may cause Wirt to stay in town forever…
OVER THE GARDEN WALL: HOLLOW TOWN #1 features a main cover by Celia Lowenthal, along with variant covers by Natalie Hall (Adventure Time) and Miguel Mercado (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers).
“With OVER THE GARDEN WALL: HOLLOW TOWN, I’ve been trying to lean into and expand upon some of the great aspects of the show: adolescent social anxiety, patterns and tropes from fairytales, and – of course – spooky things from the woods that aren’t quite what they seem,” said Celia Lowenthal. “Over The Garden Wall is just such a good story; it’s really awesome to get to play around in its universe and, hopefully, do something new and fun!”
“I love everything about Over The Garden Wall - the characters, colors, music... and the way horror and tenderness blend together,” said Jorge Monlongo. “Working on this new series so exciting.I enjoy drawing old houses and antique clothes, malefic trees, sinister creatures and frogs. But what I love the most is drawing Greg!”
Over the Garden Wall: Hollow Town #1 will hit comic shops this September.
