BOO The World's Cutest Dog Arrives in
His Very Own Comic Series In September!

June 21, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment announces that BOO - The World's Cutest Dog™, the canine social media sensation with more than 17.5 million Facebook fans and an Instagram following of over 600,000, will soon be the star of a new comic book series!

The World's Cutest Dog comes to comics! He's Boo, the Pomeranian pup that's become an internet sensation, and he's ready for four-color adventures in his first-ever comic book! In the debut issue, Boo and his canine companions Buddy and Bluebeary Pie create kitchen chaos when they can't control their tummy rumblings; our favorite doggie becomes a "Boo-vie star" when he lucks into a Hollywood audition; and finally, Boo celebrates the birthday of adorable eight-year-old Audrey… but the party gets out of hand! Comic readers of all ages will love the whimsical, fun-filled escapades of Boo, the World's Cutest Dog!

"When Dynamite published our first Grumpy Cat series, it was proven beyond a doubt that internet sensations can bring their fandom offline and into comic shops and bookstores," says Dynamite CEO/Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "When our own hearts were captured by Boo's adorable photos and memes, we knew he was the next face fit for print. We are thrilled to bring this cute little canine to comics in his very own series!"

"The Boo fandom is going strong and we are very excited to be creating new, fun content featuring the adorable Boo and his friends, with fantastic partners in both the print and digital space," says Knockout Licensing President, Tamra Knepfer.

To celebrate the launch of this new series, Dynamite will release four different orderable covers: Covers A, B, and C are illustrated by My Little Pony artists Katie Cook, Agnes Garbowska, and Tony Fleecs respectively; Cover D is illustrated by Grumpy Cat artist Steve Uy; and a special Subscription-Only Cover E features a photo of the World's Cutest Dog himself! Also, a Blank Authentix Edition will be available, featuring the same great story and a blank cover that professional and aspiring artists can illustrate.

Boo, The World's Cutest Dog #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' July 2016 Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September.  Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Boo, The World's Cutest Dog with their local comic book retailers. Boo, The World's Cutest Dog will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
