Boom! Studios has announced that Steven Universe will be taking things to a cosmic level in February with issue #25, kicking off a new story arc featuring space hero, Lars of the Stars. Writer Terry Blas (Hotel Dare) and artist Gabriele Bagnoli will “reveal Lars and the Off Colors’ hidden truths, as Steven and Connie join them in space for a mind-bending adventure”.
Boom! Studios teases:
Bingo bongo, spacefarers! From slinging donuts in Beach City to swashbuckling his way across the galaxy in a stolen spaceship, Lars has come a long way. And now with the Off Colors as his dependable and devoted crew, he’ll travel even further into the cosmos. But how deep is this newfound confidence? And what happens when the entire crew’s lives depend on him? Blas and Bagnoli blast us into hyperspace for an out-of-this-world journey into a mysterious nebula that forces our daring cast of gems, humans, and fusions to confront their deepest, darkest fears.
Steven Universe and its characters have had a great impact on so many, so the opportunity to add to this amazing world was too good to pass up. To be able to breathe life into a story about Lars and the Off Colors, a group of misfits trying to find their confidence and where they belong in the cosmos, is exactly the type of story I enjoy writing.
When I received the proposal to draw this adventure I was enthusiastic! Steven Universe is a series full of crazy things and incredible characters that I love. I really enjoyed drawing it, and I hope the readers will have as much fun as I did while working on this comic book.
Steven Universe #25 features a main cover by fan favorite artist Missy Peña (Steven Universe), along with a preorder variant cover by Francesca Perrone.
