Dark Horse is planning something truly Incredible.
In connection with Disney and Pixar’s long-awaited Incredibles 2, a graphic novel for young readers is coming June 12, followed by a three-issue miniseries of comic books starting July 11.
The 48-page graphic novel Heroes at Home, retailing for $7.99 and available for pre-order now, finds Parr children Dash and Violet doing their best to help out at home while their mom and dad — Mr. and Mrs. Incredible — take on new and very different jobs. First, Dash and Violet must secretly go into Super mode when they interrupt criminal activity on a routine grocery trip to pick up some essentials! Then, helping out at home, their efforts to keep up with their chores are unknowingly obstructed by the innocent mischief of their little brother, Jack-Jack!
Writer Liz Marsham (Disney Princess Beginnings) pens this graphic novel while artist Nicoletta Baldari (Star Wars Adventures: Forces of Destiny) brings her illustrative skills to the Parr family’s latest crime-stopping mission.
Incredibles 2: Heroes at Home features stories that are described as accessible to young readers, but enjoyable for all.
Crisis in Mid-Life! & Other Stories #1 contains part 1 of “Crisis in Mid-Life!,” part 1 of “Bedtime Story,” and a standalone Jack-Jack story. While dedicating a new submarine, Mr. Incredible is interrupted by the dastardly Bomb Voyage — who is intent on crushing the crowd of onlookers underneath the sub! Mr. Incredible struggles to save the day, which has him questioning his super powers — could something be wrong?
In “Bedtime Story” part 1, Bob tells Jack-Jack a bedtime story that has Violet and Dash calling foul: this battle from his glory days seems too amazing to be true. Then in his own adventure, at a visit to the park, Jack-Jack uses his powers to overcome a worthy opponent.
The adventures of the Parr family — aka The Incredibles — continue in this super comics collection, written by Christos Gage, and Landry Q. Walker, and illustrated by Gurihiru, J.Bone, and Andrea Greppi and Roberta Zanotta. According to Dark Horse, every issue in the three-issue miniseries will feature two original ongoing stories, plus Jack-Jack focused shorts in issues #1 and #2, set during and after the big-screen events of Incredibles 2.
Incredibles 2 comes to theaters at last June 15.
