BOOM! Studios announced OVER THE GARDEN WALL: SOULFUL SYMPHONIES, a brand new five issue limited comic book series set in the world inspired by the Emmy® Award-winning Cartoon Network animated series, Over The Garden Wall, written by Birdie Willis and illustrated by Rowan MacColl. Greg, Wirt, and Beatrice wander into a theater town and take center stage in a play that might not end the way they expect, available in August 2019.
Greg, Wirt, and Beatrice are ready for a break from the danger and excitement of their journeys through The Unknown. Luckily, they stumble upon a quaint little town full of theaters and stages but no players or musicians, leaving it mercifully quiet… but maybe a little too quiet. When a charming young woman offers Greg and Wirt the roles of a lifetime in the play at her family theater, as well as a place to stay, they decide to audition for the production and test out their acting chops. But who exactly are the three stage sisters running the show and where is everyone else in the town?
“The thing I liked best about writing this particular Over the Garden Wall story is that it speaks to my inner nerdy theater kid. Certain elements of the show remind me of a play – narration, songs, opening and closing title cards like curtains – what better way to celebrate than to put Wirt and Greg and Beatrice in a theatrical setting?” said writer, Birdie Willis.
“When I was younger, I was a big nerd that loved listening to show tunes while drawing my comics.” said artist, Rowan MacColl. “Working on SOULFUL SYMPHONIES has been such a fun experience because of this: I get to combine my esoteric love of musicals and comics in one joyful medley that I can’t wait for everyone to hear (or, uh, read).”
“Greg and Wirt literally take center stage in this fun and frightening exploration of the highs and lows of being a performing artist” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Birdie and Rowan have a lot of surprises in store for Over the Garden Wall fans and you can bet your money on some incredible song and dance numbers.”
