DC's Young Animal has announced its first miniseries in Bug!: The Adventures Of Forager. The miniseries will be co-written by Lee Allred, co-written and drawn by Mike Allred, and colored by Laura Allred. The first issue is set to release May 10.
Lee and Mike have a deep history and love of everything Jack Kirby.
"Ever since Mike and I read a battered copy of New Gods #9 in the waiting room before guitar lessons, we've loved Forager the Bug," says Lee Allred.
Laura is equally excited about the series due to Lee and Mike's enthusiasm.
"What a blast to watch Mike and Lee work together. It's like listening to little kids romping in a sandbox and hearing their imaginations burst as they play," said colorist Laura Allred. "I get inspired whenever the three of us slide into that perfect creative stream. They turn me loose with so much wonderful stuff that lights me up. There is a lot of joy in what we've done so far, and I'm so excited about everything we'll do."
The description of the series is below.
Forager is just one of the hive until the day he breaks out of his cocoon and finds himself in a mysterious house in an unknown realm. But he's not alone. As he comes across strange creatures—a ghostly girl, a talking teddy bear—Bug will have to figure out how he got here and how to return. He'll soon cross paths with the evil General Electric, who is after a precious metal that might change the very fabric of life! Forager must set out on a trip across the Multiverse to stop this evil uprising, and may even establish himself as a New God in the process.
