A New Graphic Novel from the Acclaimed Creator of Over the Garden Wall

BAGS (OR A STORY THEREOF) is the tale of a man and his dog. John Motts lives his life in his home with his dog, Beth, until one day, she goes missing. John begins a frantic search that leads him to the policeman’s home, the advice-giving walrus down the street, and eventually into the dark woods beyond the edge of town where he runs into several mysterious figures in this haunting tale of loss and the unknown.

BAGS (OR A STORY THEREOF), featuring a cover by Fullerton, is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning  KaBOOM! imprint, home to comics for middle grade and younger readers including licensed series such as Adventure Time™, Steven Universe™, Rugrats, and Over The Garden Wall™, along with original series like Pandora’s Legacy by Kara Leopard, Kelly & Nichole Matthews, Bodie Troll by Jay Fosgitt, Ruinworld by Derek Laufman, and Just Beyond by R.L.

“Patrick’s original short story comes to life with Gavin’s stunning art and Whitney’s classic colors as we follow a man who is shaken from his normal routine by a surprising and unexpected loss.” said Shannon Watters, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “In the wake of the disappearance of his dog, John follows an increasingly erratic train of thought which leads down an unusual and dangerous path until it may be too late to find his way back.”
