You’ve probably seen the TV show – it’s reached an audience far beyond its targeted pre-school demographic. You may even have seen one of the spectacular live shows. Now,W!LDBRAIN Entertainment’s Yo Gabba Gabba takes its retro-style, cool music, vivid art and wild entertainment into the realm of comic books!
Courtesy of Oni Press, DJ Lance Rock, along with the residents of his magic boombox, Brobee, Muno, Toodee, Foofa and Plex, jump from their hit series and live stage show to the wild world of comics this fall, with the first Yo Gabba Gabba! comics project – Yo Gabba Gabba! Story Comic Book Time Vol. 1.
Details from the press release follow the jump.
Yo Gabba Gabba! infuses retro-style, music, and art in a way that is utterly unique, excitingly educational, and entirely entertaining. Oni Press editor in chief James Lucas Jones was an instant fan of the program and immediately saw the possibilities for an innovative and engaging translation to comics. “Seeing the show Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz created was a revelation. These were parents who grew up on the same music, television, movies, comics, and video games I did and it comes through every aspect of the show. In addition to creating a group of charming and iconic characters, they consistently bring in top-notch folks to contribute to the program like Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh, House of Fun’s Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer, Biz Markie, the Aquabats and all of the outstanding bands in the Super Music Friends Show. I’m pleased as punch for Oni Press to be joining such a talented
and groundbreaking group of creators.”
Yo Gabba Gabba! stars DJ Lance Rock (Lance Robertson) and a cast of colorful characters, including: Brobee, the little green one, Foofa, the pink flower bubble, Muno, the red Cyclops, Toodee, the blue cat-dragon and Plex, the yellow robot. Yo Gabba Gabba Story Comic Book Time Vol. 1. is on store shelves this fall. The first in a variety of planned Yo Gabba Gabba comics, the hardcover anthology weighs in at 128, full color, oversized pages, and is Brobee-approved at only $24.99!
