KaBOOM!, the all-ages imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, is excited to announce the April debut of Steven Universe: Greg Universe Special #1 from a collection of talented creators, including Steven Universe creative team Jeremy Sorese and Coleman Engle, Liz Prince (Tomboy), Grace Kraft (Steven Universe), Kelly Turnbull (Adventure Time), Rachel Dukes (Garfield), and Chrystin Garland (Bee & PuppyCat). Based on Cartoon Network’s hit original series, this oversized, self-contained issue features shorts centered around Greg Universe and his relationship with Steven.
“The Steven Universe animated series never stops outdoing itself, consistently delivering powerful characters and deeply moving stories,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “That’s exactly the type of storytelling we strive to stay true to in the comics. For this special issue we wanted to focus a little more on the relationship between Greg and Steven; even though Greg doesn’t have Gem powers, he’s still one of the most important people in Steven’s life, and the bond between father and son presents its own kind of magic.”
Steven Universe and the rest of the Crystal Gems are bonafide heroes, saving Beach City day after day. But you know who else is a hero? Greg Universe! Steven Universe: Greg Universe Special #1 is a collection of shorts that features father-and-son fun, as Greg teaches Steven some valuable life lessons.
Steven Universe: Greg Universe Special #1 arrives in comic shops on April 29th with a main cover by Ru Xu (Steven Universe) for the price of $4.99. Also available in a limited quantity is a retailer incentive cover by Fellipe Martins (Regular Show).
