Bee and Puppycat #2 Rushed to Second Printing

Bee and PuppyCat #2 2nd Printing

Bee and Puppycat #2 is a big hit with the comic book readers. BOOM! Studios is also delighted at the news as well, rushing Bee and Puppycat #2 to a second printing. It follows the first issue sell-out, with both issues of the quirky series from creator Natasha Allegri offering stories featuring Bee, the ever-unemployed twentysomething who makes a living as a magical temp worker, and her new friend PuppyCat, the mysterious little...whatever it is...that she stumbled across who has a powerful secret.

“Bee and PuppyCat continues to deliver stories that are charming, light-hearted, and full of quirky fun,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “This is exactly the type of title we need more of in the industry. Natasha, Garrett, and all the creators involved have struck a chord with their work—this second print is a testament to their talent.”

Written by Allegri and Garrett Jackson, and illustrated by Allegri, Bee and PuppyCat is based on the Cartoon Hangover short (which can be watched at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOG_UtLxh58) that went on to become the most funded web series project in Kickstarter history. Allegri had built up a big fan-following on Tumblr while working on the Adventure Time cartoon, then created gender-swapped characters, Fionna and Cake, that became so popular, they were put into the show. Her newest creation, Bee and PuppyCat, is a slice-of-life story with a twist and it has so much comedy and enchantment you can’t help but be swept up.

Bee and PuppyCat #2 second print ships with a new cover by Buntoo under Diamond Order Code JUL148213 and carries a retail price of $3.99. It's anticipated to be on sale September 17th. Full press release below.
