By now, we've got Family Guy DVDs, t-shirts, boxers, posters, shot glasses, playing cards, soundtracks, and NOW there are comic books too.
The first-ever Family Guy comic hits stores on July 27, and according to editor Steve White, it promises to delve deeper than ever before into the Family Guy characters/world:
"'The Family Guy' universe is an amazing wellspring of ideas to plunder. It's given us a lot of latitude to develop stories ranging from one-page gag strips to more extended full-length scripts and pretty much everything in between."
"We're even looking at recurring one-pagers, but as I said, really, the world is our oyster here."
More on the characters to be featured in the comic:
"There's no way we would want to miss out on using the likes of Quagmire. There's also a wealth of other characters we'd want to include. We're not just paying lip service to the show. We're really immersing ourselves in it."
And more from White on how the comic book came to be:
"We felt that Family Guy TV show to Family Guy comic was a natural progression, but Fox needed a little convincing. In the end, we winged it and did a two-page comic strip off our own back and that actually seemed to do the trick."
And here's White on show creator Seth MacFarlane's potential involvement:
"If Seth ever fancied taking time out to write a comic strip or do a cover, we'd be pretty appreciative."
What do U think about a Family Guy comic book? Will U give it a read?
