Your First Look at “THE SONS OF EL TOPO” From BOOM! Studio

Discover The Sequel To The Groundbreaking Film in December 2018


LOS ANGELES, CA (October 29, 2018) – – BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at THE SONS OF EL TOPO VOLUME ONE: CAIN, a hardcover original graphic novel, available in December 2018, from legendary filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky (The Holy Mountain) and virtuosic illustrator José Ladrönn (Incredible Hulk) that continues the 1970 Mexican Acid Western film written, scored, directed by and starring Alejandro Jodorowsky himself.

The merciless gunslinger El Topo has abandoned his pursuit of ultimate gun mastery to find enlightenment in the unlikeliest of places and is forever transformed, becoming a holy vessel imbued with the power to perform miracles and cheat death. But just as he gains sainthood, tragedy strikes as his community of outcasts is murdered before his eyes and his long-abandoned Hijo, Cain, returns to kill the father who discarded him many years ago.

Fueled by resentment but unable to strike his saintly father, Cain instead vows to hunt down his half-brother Abel, leading to an astonishing quest in THE SONS OF EL TOPO VOLUME ONE: CAIN, featuring a haunting cover by José Ladrönn, and continuing the legend in graphic novel format.

“The son becomes the father in this new chapter of El Topo’s saga as we follow Cain’s journey through the same desert wastelands and twisted mental landscapes that Jodorowsky built for us in the original film. Longtime devotees and new fans alike will love to explore this world with Jodorowsky and Ladrönn at the helm,” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios.

THE SONS OF EL TOPO VOLUME ONE: CAIN is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ ambitious Archaia imprint, home to graphic novels such as the Eisner Award-winning Mouse Guard by David Petersen; the Eisner Award-winning The Realist by Asaf Hanuka; the Eisner Award-nominated The Killer by Matz and Luc Jacamon; and licensed series like Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation.

Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

GARY WHITTA AND DARICK ROBERTSON’S OLIVER ARTFULLY DODGES ITS WAY INTO STORES THIS JANUARY

PORTLAND, OR, 10/16/2018 — Award-winning screenwriter Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryThe Book Of Eli) teams with celebrated artist Darick Robertson (HAPPY!, TransmetropolitanThe Boys) for the highly anticipated new dystopian series OLIVER—coming this January from Image Comics.

“OLIVER has been more than 15 years in the making, so it’s a particular thrill to finally see it on its way to a comics store near you, and at a time when it feels more relevant than ever,” said Whitta. “I couldn’t be more excited to be working with my long-time friend Darick Robertson, whose artwork I’ve admired ever since his groundbreaking work on Transmetropolitan.”

In this totally new take on a literary classic, Charles Dickens’ most famous orphan is reimagined as a post-apocalyptic superhero fighting to liberate a war-ravaged England while searching for the truth about his own mysterious origins.

“This project has been a long labor of love for me,” said Robertson. “Co-creating OLIVER has been an opportunity to bring my level best work, with support from Eric Stephenson and Image. It is the essence of what brings me passion for comics and visual storytelling. With OLIVER, I have been able to co-create a rich, emotionally engaging story by my (very patient) friend Gary Whitta, whose career has just surged in the time we have been creating this book. For me, this is what indie comics are all about. I am thrilled to have it scheduled for its January launch at long last.”

OLIVER #1 (Diamond code: NOV180029) will be available in comic book stores on Wednesday, January 23rd. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 31st.

Advance praise for OLIVER: 

“Gary Whitta slips effortlessly from movies into comics with a terrific story and career-best art from Darick Robertson.” —Mark Millar

“This is compelling and masterful storytelling, vividly set in a world that is both familiar and startling.” —Dave Gibbons

BOOM! Studios Announces ADVENTURE TIME: MARCY & SIMON by Olivia Olson and Slimm Fabert

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 15, 2018) – – BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network today announced ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 (of 6), kicking off an all-new limited series epic in January 2019. Writer Olivia Olson (Marceline on Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time™) and artist Slimm Fabert (Adventure Time™ comic series) unveil the exciting official comic book continuation of the Emmy® Award-winning Cartoon Network animated series by revealing what’s next for the titular Vampire Queen and the former Ice King

After the events of the Adventure Time™ series finale, Marceline and Simon have finally reunited! Now together, Simon asks Marceline for help in making amends for his time as Ice King, which leads them, Finn, and Jake on an adventure with so many twists and turns, even our skilled heroes have a hard time keeping up!

A modern day fable, the Emmy® Award–winning animated series Adventure Time™ has become a global success since its premiere in 2010, attracting adult and kid viewers in their millions over the course of 10 seasons. It follows unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. Adventure Time is created by Pendleton Ward and produced at Cartoon Network Studios.

BOOM! Studios has been publishing the New York Times bestselling Adventure Time™ comic books and graphic novels through their KaBOOM! imprint for middle grade readers since 2012 and been honored with Eisner, Harvey, and Diamond Gem Awards for the series.

“Craziness and wonder aside, the best thing about Adventure Time™ is the show’s ability to make you feel,” said writer Olivia Olson. “Great storytelling can punch you in the gut with laughter, tears or ‘Woah, me too.’ Playing Marceline for the past 8 years has taught me a lot about myself. Besides the whole, demon/vampire post-apocalyptic childhood, she and I have all too much in common. Some of that will definitely come out in this series. I want to thank Cartoon Network and BOOM! Studios for the opportunity to keep these characters story going. I hope to do our queen proud and keep the spirit of Adventure Time™ alive undead.”

ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 is Olson’s third writing contribution to the expanded literary world of the eponymous franchise, previously collaborating with her father Martin Olson (the voice of “Hunson Abadeer”) on The Adventure Time™ Encyclopedia. The two also co-authored Adventure Time™: The EnchiridionMarcy’s Super Secret Scrapbook, written from a first person perspective through Marceline’s diary entries about when she and Simon first met. Both Adventure Time™books, published in partnership between Abrams and Cartoon Network, are available now everywhere books are sold.

“Marceline’s history with the Ice King is honestly my favorite part of Adventure Time™, so I feel very lucky to get to work on a comic that explores their relationship in the present,” said artist Slimm Fabert. “Olivia’s script is excellent, and I’m very excited to see where the story goes from here.”

ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 features a main cover by Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance), along with variant covers by Lisa Dubois (Rugrats), Sofie Drozdova (Regular Show) and Ashley Morales.

“There’s a lot of reasons to love the world of Adventure Time™, from the unforgettable adventures to the surprises around every corner, but it’s the characters who leave a permanent mark on every fan. And when it comes to favorites, there’s few more beloved than Marcy and Simon,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “It’s an honor to have Olivia, the one and only voice of Marceline, join us to bring these new stories to life exclusively in comic book form alongside the amazing visuals created by Slimm. This series is a treat for everyAdventure Time™ fan who wants to know what happened to Marcy and Simon after the epic Cartoon Network series finale!”
