BABY DUCKS AND OMINOUS WATER PARKS: RACHEL CONNOR TALKS ‘REGULAR SHOW: HYDRATION’ GRAPHIC NOVEL [INTERVIEW]
By Chris Sims
Boom! Studios has found success with a line of Adventure Time original graphic novels that’s being published alongside the ongoing monthly comic, so it was only a matter of time before they expanded that strategy to include Regular Show as well. Now, we’re just about to see the first full-color Regular Show graphic novel, Hydration, hitting shelves with a story of everyone’s favorite raccoon and bluejay dealing with a heat wave that hits the park, sending them in search of a way to cool off. It’s a simple idea, but under Rachel Connor and Tessa Stone, it turns into a sprawling adventure that’s full of the magical realism and 8-bit video games that Regular Show fans have come to love.

To find out more, I spoke to Connor about the process of creating a story that would be longer and more complicated than any episode of the show, the strange twists that allowed it to expand to a full 155 pages, and why the Baby Ducks just had to make an appearance.

(I’ll be at DRAGON*CON, my table is in the comics section!  Come by, I’ll have loads of prints and badges and books (remember, I make my living/find happiness from writing and drawing books!).  Get a sketch, exchange words, etc)
So I did a Guardians of the Galaxy commission, and decided to color it, because, well, I color everything these days.

ALE GIORGINI DRAWS CHARACTERS FROM YOUR FAVORITE MOVIES WITH THEIR EYES CLOSED

By Chris Sims

When you’re trying to spotlight an artist like Ale Giorgini, it’s difficult to figure out what to focus on. He’s done so much great stuff built on so many themes, from minimalist portraits of celebrities (a roster that includes both Charlie Brown and David Lynch) to pairing off some of cinema’s greatest couples in a series called “That’s Amore,” and it’s all worth seeing.

In the end, though, it was the pieces inspired by some of my favorite movies that hooked me, full of sleepy-eyed characters from The Big LebowskiGhostbustersThe Goonies and more.
