Dynamite Entertainment announced on Friday that Fox's hit animated series Bob's Burgers will be coming to comic stores everywhere this upcoming August. Bob's Burgers: The Comic Book will be written, drawn, and overseen by the writers, animators, and producers of the TV series that airs during the weekend "Animation Domination" block that also homes The Simpsons and Family Guy. The very first issue of the Bob's Burgers comic book includes five vignettes: "Louise's Unsolved Mysteries," "Tina's Erotic Friend Fiction," "A Gene Belcher Original Musical," "Letters Written by Linda" and "Bob's Burgers of the Day."
"If you like Bob's Burgers and you like comic books then you may feel like you're living in one of the greatest times in human history because Bob's Burgers and comic books are coming together in the form of the Bob's Burgers Comic Book," said Loren Bouchard, The creator of Bob's Burgers. "But of course we could really mess it up. Then you'd feel like you were living in one of the worst times in human history. Either way, we hope you'll check out the first few issues. We tried to make something that's true to the show and true to the form without being a sad knock-off of either." "When we announced Bob's Burgers at San Diego Comic-Con last July - and the fact that Loren and his entire team would be involved in every detail of production - the response was huge," said Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. "And the results are fantastic - the creative team over at Bento Box Entertainment has put together some incredible stories and artwork, perfectly suited for the comic book format. We're grateful for their dedicated involvement, and eagerly anticipate that the Belcher family's comic book shenanigans will draw in fans from outside of the direct market." Bob's Burgers #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' June Previews catalog and slated for release in August 2014. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Bob's Burgers #1 with their local comic book retailers. Bob's Burgers #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
