BOOM! Studios is launching an ongoing “Rugrats” comic in October, written by Box Brown (“Andre the Giant: Life and Legend”) and drawn by Lisa DuBois (“Adventure Time”). It will be published through their kaboom! imprint.The first issue sees Tommy Pickles and friends up against a new terrible enemy: a babycam.
The series will be the first of several collaborations between Boom! and Nickelodeon. Filip Sablik, President of Publishing & Marketing at BOOM! Studios, said, “As longtime fans of Nickelodeon’s innovative, outstanding programming, we couldn’t be happier to kick off our partnership with the return of Rugrats. The entire team at Nickelodeon has been a fantastic partner, working with us to deliver the best all-new stories of your favorite animated shows in comic book form through our all-ages KaBOOM! imprint.”
Rugrats was a phenomenon among children of the 1990s, and led to three feature films, a stage show, and a follow-up series titled All Grown Up! A syndicated comic strip based on the show ran from 1998 to 2003, while magazines featuring original comic stories were published by Marvel in the UK and Nickelodeon in the US during the series’ heyday.
