BOOM! Studios Love Mordecai and Rigby

Regualr Show 2014 Annual #1 Cover A

Mordecai and Rigby are two characters people seem to love. They make their living as part of Regular Show and now they're getting in on more action in Regular Show 2014 Annual one-shot. The oversized issue features a collection of action-packed stories from a talented group of indie creators, including Kevin Burkhalter, Jimmy Giegerich, Tessa Stone, Mad Rupert and Andy Kluthe. Mordecai and Rigby find themselves at odds over a haunted pair of sneakers; Pops might be lost inside a hidden labyrinth and he’s not quite sure how he got there; and Skips might finally have a problem that even he can’t solve. Do you know those appetizer sampler platters you can order in your favorite restaurant?

The comic is based on the hit Cartoon Network series created by J.G. Quintel about super lazy best buds Mordecai the bluejay and Rigby the raccoon, who routinely try to find ways to slack off from their jobs as groundskeepers at the local park. In their hilarious, off-the-wall adventures, they interact with the other characters in the show, including their boss, Benson; Skips the yeti; and Muscle Man, a fellow groundskeeper whose best friend is Hi-Five Ghost.

The on-sale date for Regular Show 2014 Annual #1 is May 21st. The main cover for the issue is illustrated by regular series artist Allison Strejlau and it retails for $4.99 under Diamond order code MAR140994. There are also two retailer incentive covers by Jen Lee and regular series writer KC Green that will be available in limited quantities. Full press release below.
We cannot get enough of Mordecai and Rigby in our lives so I'd like to call your attention to the REGULAR SHOW 2014 ANNUAL one-shot we have coming out in comic book shops later next month through our KaBOOM! imprint!
