BOOM! Studios Gives WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER the Graphic Novel Treatment [PREVIEW]

BOOM! Studios, Enter These Dark Woods, and Creative Licensing have released first preview artwork from the WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER original graphic novel (OGN), arriving in stores November 2018.

In the first ever graphic fiction tie-in to the eponymous film, writer Christopher Hastings (Gwenpool) and artist Noah Hayes (Goldie Vance) reunite your favorite characters from Camp Firewood in an all-new story, featuring a cover by Joe Quinones (America).

Camp Director Beth is relieved to have made it through week one of Camp Firewood in one piece…until the health department is called in for a surprise camp inspection! Now Beth, Coop, Katie, Andy, Susie, Gene, Nancy, Victor, Ben, McKinley, J.J., Gary, Gail, and the rest of Camp Firewood have 24 hours to – literally – clean up their act by bringing the camp up to code or this will be the last summer the camp is open! Luckily, the camp counselors are all onboard to pitch in…if they ever come back from partying in town.

“If you are ready for a summer to remember with some familiar faces and lots of laughs, then you better join us at Camp Firewood.” said Chris Rosa, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Partnering with Christopher, Noah, Joe and our friends at Creative Licensing and Enter These Dark Woods has allowed us to create a Wet Hot American Summer graphic novel experience that’ll thrill fans of the film and that also acts as a perfect entry point into this wonderfully surreal world!”

Wet Hot American Summer is the renowned 2001 cult comedy classic starring Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Michael Showalter, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Molly Shannon, and many others. Written by Showalter (The Big Sick, Hello My Name Is Doris) and David Wain (Role Models, Wanderlust) and directed by Wain, this iconic film was the launching pad for many comedy greats.

“It’s exciting for us to see the path that Christopher [Hastings] and Noah [Hayes] are taking with Camp Firewood and the counselors,” said Howard Bernstein, producer of the 2001 film. “BOOM! Studios’ graphic novel fits perfectly into the Wet Hot cannon, and we are excited for the fans to read it.”
