Over the Garden Wall is a lush animated series airing on Cartoon Network. Boom! Studios released a one-shot adaptation of the show, which led to new issues due to its success. These newer issues help expand certain points between some episodes of the animated series. It’s a fine chance for you to get all caught up!!
Over the Garden Wall is an American animated television miniseries created by Patrick McHale for Cartoon Network. The series centers around two half-brothers who travel across a strange forest in order to find their way home, encountering strange and wonderful things on their journey. The show is based on McHale’s animated short film Tome of the Unknown.
Bringing the classic feel of a Victorian fable, this is a fun journey of two brothers trying to find their way home through the Unknown, a strange forest adrift in time. With the talent of Pat McHale on story and the illustrative storytelling of Jim Campbell this is definitely going to be an awesome journey that will appeal to fans of The Secret of NIMH, The Triplets of Belleville, and Grimms’ Fairy Tales.

About the comic:
Crime is down in Los Angeles—at least, on the surface. Mickey Cohen has been quiet since his release from prison and the LAPD has seemingly regained control of the city. But the underground is a different story. Det. Harvey Slater and company have spent the last two years focused on Domino and his Syndicate’s unrelenting infiltration, but no matter how many people the hit squad kills, the real fight for Los Angeles rages on. Meanwhile, Slater’s being hounded by Internal Affairs, Bonnie Brae is missing, and everything is falling apart at the seams.
