BOOM! Announces A Wet Hot American Summer Original Graphic Novel

Just wait until you see Michael Ian Black's hilarious deliveries in print.

Out of Cartoon Network properties to mine, BOOM! Studios is moving on to the next best thing, a 2001 film with a 2015 prequel series and a 2017 sequel series: Wet Hot American Summer. There's nothing comic readers love more than fucked up continuity.

Wet Hot American Summer, directed by David Wain, followed a group of camp counselors on their last day of summer camp. While the movie was an initial failure, it became a cult classic, as a touchstone of many actors' early work including Janeane Garofalo, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Michael Showalter, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, and Amy Poehler.

Filip Sablik, President of Publishing & Marketing, BOOM! Studios, EXXXCLUSIVELY told The Outhouse, "I always loved [Wet Hot American Summer]. I think the flat, static medium of comics is the perfect medium to bring the hilarious physical comedy and funny line delivery to. Gosh, I wish I went to summer camp. Maybe I can have someone draw me in."
