Preview: Steven Universe #1

Brigid Alverson

BOOM! Studios is debuting another all-ages title in its kaBOOM imprint: Steven Universe, based on the Cartoon Network show by Adventure Time alumna Rebecca Sugar. Here’s a look at the first issue, but first, here’s the 411:

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: A comic about a boy and his friends living in a small beach community, who just happens to have magical powers and fight monsters on the side?! Fans of ADVENTURE TIME and Sailor Moon are gonna dig this series presented in a zine-like format of mini-comics, recipes, games, and more!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Steven really wants to enter the annual Beach City Bike Race but everyone else is a little worried. Steven just makes the cut-off for age, which means the other bikers will be a lot older than him. Connie agrees to help Steven the old-fashioned way through good ol’ exercise but Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl have other plans…

The comic is out in comic shops today. Enjoy!
