Bill and Ted are Back with a BOOM
Boom writes in:
We are indeed launching a new Bill & Ted comic book series, set to debut in March. The six-issue miniseries is called Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return, and is set after the events of both films, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. In this series, Bill & Ted must now fulfill their destiny as the inspiration of galactic harmony, and they start by using their time machine to travel to the 27th century to turn a young Chuck De Nomolos into a fan of Wyld Stallyns.
Writing it will be Brian Lynch, who’s written comics like Angel: After the Fall and Spike, and is also an accomplished screenwriter, having worked on the Puss in Boots and Hop animated films, and next year’s Minions movie. Joining him will be artist Jerry Gaylord (Fanboys Vs. Zombies), a favorite of ours here at BOOM!
Each issue will contain a short back-up story worked on by a different set of creators. In issue #1, that will be writer Ryan North (Adventure Time) and artist Ian McGinty (Bravest Warriors). Their story can be described like this: “The Evil Bill and Ted play a trick on the Good Robotusses that only Bill and Ted can solve...with the power of time travel!”
