Media Release -- BOOM! Studios is proud to continue KaBOOM! Summer Blast, a week-long spotlight on the best middle grade comic books and graphic novels from the award-winning imprint in the coming months with an extended first look at RUINWORLD #1, the debut issue of writer/artist Derek Laufman's hit middle grade comics series.
Intrepid adventurers Pogo and Rex are on a quest for fame and fortune. Their discovery of a special map leads them on an epic journey through dangers, demons and old enemies. There's one tiny problem—they've already lost the map. Now they'll have to survive the greatest dangers of a world where threats hide behind every corner…if they can find a way to first survive each other's best intentions first!
RUINWORLD #1 features a main cover by Derek Laufman (Adventure Time) and a variant cover by Sean Galloway (Teen Titans Go!).
"If you're a fan of adventure, comedy or being happier than you can imagine, RUINWORLD was made for you," said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. "Derek brings a charm and wit along with a great eye for action that makes this series unlike anything else on the stands. Pogo and Rex will steal your heart from the moment you meet them – but don't worry, they're pretty terrible thieves so they'll give it back to you right away."

Studios' critically acclaimed KaBOOM! imprint, publisher of world-class licensed series such as Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, Peanuts, and Garfield, along with original series like Mega Princess by Kelly Thompson and Brianne Drouhard, Brave Chef Brianna by Sam Sykes and Selina Espiritu and The Deep by Tom Taylor and James Brouwer.
