“It’s really gratifying to see the comic book community respond to BEE AND PUPPYCAT like this,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We couldn’t wait to work with Natasha again and help her bring this magical world to life in comics. We’re fans of Bee and PuppyCat ourselves, so it’s a crazy amount of fun telling new stories that are additive to the web series.”
BEE AND PUPPYCAT #1 is a quirky new take on the magical girl genre with Bee, the forever unemployed main character who can’t seem to figure out life, and the mysterious PuppyCat, a stray…whatever it is…that she stumbled across who has a powerful secret. Fighting bad guys has never been so funny!
