Our friends at Kickstart Comics have been putting out some excellent graphic novels over the last year. I’ve been excited about each of their new releases, but when I found out about the upcoming KNOWBODYS (out in October), I freaked out a little. See, it’s written by Matt Maiellaro, co-creator of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I’ve frequently gone on record with my love of ATHF (and its new incarnation as Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1), so I was really excited to see what he had brewing over at Kickstart.
I got to read a preview copy, and I loved it. It’s the story of a husband-and-wife team of paranormal investigators, trying to save the world while not letting the kids know what they really do for a living. There will be a full review later, but for now, I’ll just say that it’s a lot of fun. It’s very funny, but in a different way than you might expect. And it’s a story where the stakes are high and there are actual heroes, which is as far from the Aqua Teens as you can get. It’s surprising and it’s really great.
