Music and cartoons are right up my alley, so a comic that touches on both seems to be my speed. It’s unsurprising, then, that this first look at the new Over the Garden Wall series Soulful Symphonies is absolutely delightful, from Rowan MacColl’s gentle and engaging pencils to the kind of creepy variant covers. Check it out below, along with further details about the series. It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of spooky, whimsical fun, so I’m definitely looking forward to this one.

In their strange and rambling quest to find a way out of the mysterious woods and back home to their ordinary lives, brothers Wirt and Greg, along with their friend, a talking bird named Beatrice, stumble upon an odd town full of stages, musical shops, and theaters but not a single person in sight. When Greg breaks out into song on stage in the eerily silent village, he finds an audience of one who then draws them all into the performance to end all other performances …
