BOOM! Studios is pulling a card from Kevin Smith's one-card deck by throwing 23-year old slackers Mordecai and Rigby 25 years into the future in Regular Show: 25 Years Later. The six-issue mini-series, written by Christopher Hastings and drawn by Anna Johnstone, will presumably see the 48-year old slackers still working at the park.

"I love the relative elegance of a Regular Show story. Start with a mundane problem, try to weasel out of it, and then plunge into madness," said writer Christopher Hastings. "The characters are completely grounded, have real relationships with each other, and then you take them and stick them in the most bonkers, surreal, fantasy/sci-fi/horror/everything impossible scenarios you can think of. It's a simple combo, but it gives you room for a countless amount of new stories. The tricky part was figuring out how to get the older and MUCH more mature Mordecai and Rigby to jump into that dance again. They've traded their insane adventures for family and career. Seeing how these wiser old pals handle the temptations of adventure will be a big part of the fun of this series, not to mention just catching up with all the other characters, seeing what's changed in their lives, or what's stayed the same." 

Regular Show: 25 Years Later #1 features a main cover by JK Phan, with variant covers by Cole Closser and Noelle Stevenson. The first issue is set to release in June.
