Boom! Studios and PAWS Inc. are bringing us more Garfield comics in June 2018 in the form of a four-issue series which will feature the artwork of four different artists, all giving their own interpretation to the nap-loving feline.
In Garfield: Homecoming, Garfield feels mistreated by Jon and goes on a journey looking for a new home. Along the way, he meets a clown who works in a travelling circus and decides to work in the circus. Till things get a little explosive!
Writer Scott Nickel (Garfield: His 9 Lives) will write all four issues of the limited series, but pair with a different artist in each issue, starting with Sara Talmadge (Steven Universe).
Scott Nickel comments:
Putting Garfield on the road in GARFIELD: HOMECOMING allows him to meet a variety of new characters – both friend and foe – and his journey takes him to some interesting and unexpected places. We hope fans enjoy the ride.
Sara Talmadge says:
I’ve always loved Garfield and getting to take him on an all new adventure with Scott and the team and BOOM! Studios was such a thrill! Garfield’s taking on the circus with his usual sass and legendary appetite… But can he be the new star act that the circus needs? Every page in this issue was a total blast to draw (I mean, what’s more fun than the circus?), and I hope you enjoy it too!
Garfield: Homecoming #1 features a main cover by Andy Hirsch (Adventure Time) with Sara Talmadge.
Print copies of issue #1 will be available for sale in June 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the Boom! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the Boom! Studios app.
