Grab the Treasure! Get an Exclusive Munchkin Card in Every First-Print Copy of the New Comic Series

Kick open the door! Kill the monster! Steal the treasure! The world of Munchkin is coming to comics! BOOM! Box, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, will debut of the new ongoing series Munchkin, based on the best-selling card game about dungeon adventure created by Steve Jackson Games in January. Every first-printing copy of the comic will include a brand-new exclusive card that can be used in the game!

Writers Tom Siddell, Jim Zub, and John Kovalic, who is also the official artist of the game and illustrates his own stories in the comics, along with artists Mike Holmes and Rian Sygh, translate the world of Munchkin into an adventure series where readers can join the power-hungry, emotional, and untrustworthy group as they continue the satirical battles made famous through the card game.

Based on the immensely popular card game, the Munchkin comic series takes place in a very flexible mashup of genres. Originally a satire of fantasy roleplaying, the game has since then taken on non-fantasy and non-gaming elements, and the new comic series builds on that. Munchkin #1 features four stories set in and around the world of the game, featuring Spyke and the other characters, monsters, and weapons that players have come to love.

Munchkin #1 arrives in comic shops from BOOM! Box on January 28th with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code NOV141115. Every copy of the first printing includes an exclusive brand-new Munchkin card able to be used in the game. The main cover is illustrated by Ian McGinty, with a 1-in-99 “Jackpot” variant cover by Evan Palmer, a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb, and a retailer incentive cover by John Kovalic. The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is January 5th.
