HIT CARD GAME ‘MUNCHKIN’ COMES TO COMICS WITH A BOOM!

Press release announced today!! Munchkin fans rejoice!! 

I've only recently started playing Munchkin the past year but I've become addicted to it and fast. After a dinner with Steve Jackson and being able to watch and listen to him talk it was very interesting and insightful on just how creative this guy is. It'll be an unique team up and I'm going to be reading issue #1 for sure. 

Pull on your Boots of Butt-Kicking and rev up that Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment because award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios and Steve Jackson Games are delighted to announce an ongoing MUNCHKIN comic book series coming this Fall. The Munchkin series will be based on the worldwide best-selling card game where players travel through the dungeon and kill everything in sight in order to gain the best (and weirdest) weapons and highest levels. It’s a hilarious, fantasy role-playing game-inspired spoof that brings friends together...until you backstab them for their treasure. 




“There’s a big contingent of fantasy RPG fans here at BOOM! HQ and Munchkin’sirreverent, wry approach to the tropes of the genre is right in our wheelhouse,” said BOOM! Studios Vice President of Publishing and Marketing Filip Sablik. “It’s weird and wacky, and we can’t wait to explore a side of the game that hasn’t been seen before.”
“The best part of the comic books—besides seeing what sort of wacky stories the creative teams craft around Spyke, Flower, and all of the Munchkin characters—is that Munchkinfans will get to watch as the world of the game expands well outside of it's gameland incarnation,”  said Philip Reed, Chief Operating Officer of Steve Jackson Games.
MUNCHKIN #1 will arrive in comic shops this Fall. Further details will follow.
