Based on a yearlong blog challenge and following a successfully funded Kickstarter for an art book and a widely attended gallery showing of Dreistadt’s original painted art, Capture Creatures is a heartwarming story about over one hundred strange creatures that suddenly appear on Earth and the two teens who will do whatever they can to keep them safe and figure out where they came from.

“Becky and Frank are both enormously talented, and we’re so happy to be working with them again on a new original series,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “They’ve created over a hundred amazing creatures, making this a very ambitious project that has potential for so many delightful stories. There are adorable creatures for everybody to discover, and each one of them comes with their own unique story.”
