Official, "Sesame Street," Comics Have Been Announced

"Sesame Street," has been around for decades, but has never had an official comic. There have been plenty of picture books, but not a real issue of a floppy. Therefore, hearing there will be a four-issue mini-series to kick off a collaboration between the brand and publisher Oni Press is pretty cool! Written by Joey Esposito and having art by Austin Baechle, it'll hit the stands in late August. Comicsbeat wrote about the announcement and provided the full press release which you can find at this link

The initial mini set in the World of Sesame Street will be fully titled, "Sesame Street: Grover Lends a Hand," and will follow the city's Grover as he tries to help his friends (such as Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, etc.) out with their various problems through cooperation and teamwork. It sounds fun and like it will have a positive message--so you know, "Sesame Street," type stuff. I loved the show as a kid and still appreciate it as an adult who can show it to my own kiddos now. A variety of comics telling Sesame Street-related stories sounds like a fun idea and I look forward to this Grover-centric tale and many more that I imagine are to come!
