Boom! Studios, as part of its KaBoom! imprint, has announced Drew and Jot, a new three volume original graphic novel series from cartoonist Art Baltazar. The first volume, Drew and Jot: Dueling Doodles, following the sketchbook adventures of superhero Drew, his trusty sidekick Jot, and their sworn nemesis Doctor Danger. It’s set to debut in November 2019.
The comic centers on Andrew and Foz as they become best friends on the first day of fifth grade, joined by their mutual love of drawing fun characters and crazy action. Their sketches practically come to life in their notebooks as they create a world of adventure following two best friends, Drew and Jot. When Andrew’s little sister gets her hands on his notebook and scribbles a brand new threat that could ruin everything.
Creator Art Baltazar says:
The looseness and fast energy of crayon sketches gone wild! Drew and Jot are characters I had in my sketchbook since the year 2002! This is an EVENT come true for me and it feels excellent to FINALLY bring these guys to the masses! AW YEAH BOOM! Let the dueling of doodles begin! Enjoy the awesome!
I’ve long been an advocate for kids comics and no one does it better than Art Baltazar. He brings an unparalleled sense of fun and adventure to his work and I’m excited to see what he’ll deliver with Drew and Jot.
Chris Rosa, Editor, Boom! Studios adds:
This book is for every kid, from ages nine to ninety, who ever dressed up in a superhero cape or spent a week stapling together copies of their own hand-drawn comic book adventure. Art Baltazar brings all his trademark humor, fun, and zany action to this superhero caper that’s bound to please comic book fans of all ages, and maybe even convince some of them to start drawing their own.
Drew and Jot: Dueling Doodles is set for release in November 2019.
