I somehow completely missed the limited series Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return last year, but recently read it and was really pleasantly surprised (it’s now collected in a trade that ships today, so you can catch up too!). I must have seen Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure a handful of times, and missed Bogus Journey (I was young and the robots kinda scared me; come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the whole thing), but I’ve always had fond memories of the first film. Less fond of it’s game, which I played a few times at a friend of the family’s house and was always utterly confused.
Following the success of B&TMTR, Boom has snagged Brian Joines and Bachan to handle the writing and art chores on a new sequel that sees Bill and Ted go literally to Hell. The first issues a lot of fun, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the rest of this. Jump on now while the bandwagon is still in town.
Boom’s official solicit and preview pages follow.
What’s to Love: It’s time again to be excellent to each other! We showed just how much we love Bill & Ted with 2015’s Bill & Ted’s Most Triumphant Return, and since 2016 is the 25th anniversary of Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, why not celebrate with a new mini-series that sends the lovable duo to Hell? Plus, all Subscription covers in this mini-series will feature a unique Wyld Stallyns album cover created by some of the industry’s top talents!
What It Is: Bill & Ted are back for a brand-new miniseries, this time with theImagine Agents team of Brian Joines and Bachan at the helm. It’s time to get the band back together! Bill & Ted and the Princesses will have to reunite with some historic friends to knock down the Devil’s door and get their friend Death back. With the help of Rufus, Billy the Kid, Joan of Arc, and more, this is the showdown that will rock the supernatural world. History vs. Hell. Too bad Hell has some surprises up its sleeve…
