by Olly MacNamee

The cult classic comedy, Napoleon Dynamite is coming to comics, courtesy of IDW. Phew, that’s enough alliteration for now.

Anyway, here’s what you need to know about this new four-part series coming this September. It’s written by the brothers Carlos Guzman-Verdugo and Alejandro Verdugo (Time Cheetah), with art by Jorge Monlongo (Adventure Time).

The new four-issue Napoleon Dynamite series takes us back to Idaho, where Napoleon’s best friend Pedro is student body president. But the good times might not last when a fellow student accuses Pedro of cheating in the election. Can Napoleon and Deb use their special skills to clear their friend before the principal can “Impeach Pedro”?

As for their take on Napoleon Dynamite, With this new story, we’re focusing on matching the movie’s unique tone, finding that perfect blend of oddball comedy and charming slice-of-life drama here’s what Carlos Guzman-Verdugo said:

With this new story, we’re focusing on matching the movie’s unique tone, finding that perfect blend of oddball comedy and charming slice-of-life drama. It’s certainly been a challenge but one we’re sure will pay off for long-time fans. And the best part: we get to rewatch a lot of Napoleon Dynamite!

Napoleon Dynamite #1 will hit stores and digital downloads this September.
