Teen Angst and Whimsical Adventures Collide in Newest BOOM! Box Title.
BOOM! Box, an imprint of BOOM! Studios announced today the upcoming release of TEEN DOG, from the up and coming web cartoonist Jake Lawrence. TEEN DOG is being described as a ‘90s Nickelodeon cartoon with the feel of a John Hughes film. Lawrence, who created the character will also be writing and illustrating the new series. TEEN DOG is the cool guy you always wanted to be in high school, à la Michael J. Fox and Ferris Bueller, except he’s a dog in a rad denim vest. Each issue contains short vignettes featuring Teen Dog, his best friend Mariella, Thug Pug, Sara the star quarterback, and many more.
“Teen Dog. TEEN. DOG. Need we say more?” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Our new BOOM! Box imprint is becoming a home for some of our favorite cartoonists and storytellers, many of whom are coming over to print for the first time. Jake, like many of our other BOOM! Box creators, has built up his audience on Tumblr. We’re continuing to carve out a place where quirky, silly, and just outrageously fun and experimental comics can thrive in print.”
Skateboards, football games, prom…your teenage years have got nothin’ on the raddest dude that’s ever graced a denim vest.
