Preview: ‘Over the Garden Wall’ #1
Over the Garden Wall, a sort of a twisted fairy tale story about two half-brothers trying to find their way home, started out as an animated miniseries on Cartoon Network, and BOOM! Studios published a one-shot comic in their all-ages KaBOOM line. Now they are back with a four-issue series, and the first issue came out this past Wednesday. Here’s the blurb:
In this first of four issues, we present a new Over the Garden Wall story set between episodes 3 and 4 of the animated series! Wirt and Greg are trying to hitch a ride out of schooltown but end up having to walk. Soon, they come upon two girls playing, and wind up having to keep them entertained so that they don’t wake their giant of a father!
