Boom! Studios and Cartoon network will be bringing us more Over the Garden Wall comics in the form of an original graphic novel in November 2018, they’ve announced.
Over the Garden Wall: Distillatoria will be written by Eisner Award-winning creator Jonathan Case and drawn by Jim Campbell, who is also an Eisner winner.
Boom! describe the new graphic novel thus:
While exploring the Unknown, Greg and Wirt suddenly find themselves back home—only it looks like they brought Beatrice back with them?! Now, it’s up to them to help Beatrice return safely to the Unknown before anyone realizes she can talk. But it looks like something sinister might be happening in the shadows and everything might not be as it seems. It’s a mad dash filled with friendship, love, Sara, and learning that home might be a lot further away than you think.
Jonathan Case enthuses:
As a borderline-scary fan of Over the Garden Wall, I’m excited to find myself at the helm of a new adventure for Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice. Really, really excited, you guys. With Distillatoria, we’ll revisit some familiar and beloved bits: the Unknown, the Wirt-poems, the rock facts…but we’ll also explore new and (I hope) surprising territory. I dearly hope this new book is a good time for all my fellow old souls and romantic weirdos. And of course, all the lovers of Greg.
Jim Campbell says:
At this point drawing Over the Garden Wall feels like home to me. I love this world. I’m really excited about exploring a lot of the new, weird, and creepy imagery Jonathan has conjured up for this story. But it’s also got some of my favorite settings and characters from the show we haven’t seen in the comics yet. This is going to be a good one.
Print copies of the new OGN will be available for sale in Fall 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one), book stores or at the Boom! Studios webstore.
