Reach for the stars in an all-new epic with Space Captain Lars in February 2019
BOOM! Studios today announced that STEVEN UNIVERSE™ #25, on-sale in February 2019, will kick off an epic new comic book exclusive storyline featuring fan favorite space hero, Lars of the Stars! Writer Terry Blas (Hotel Dare) and artist Gabriele Bagnoli reveal Lars and the Off Colors’ hidden truths, as Steven and Connie join them in space for a mind-bending adventure no fan can miss.
Bingo bongo, spacefarers! From slinging donuts in Beach City to swashbuckling his way across the galaxy in a stolen spaceship, Lars has come a long way. And now with the Off Colors as his dependable and devoted crew, he’ll travel even further into the cosmos. But how deep is this newfound confidence? And what happens when the entire crew’s lives depend on him? Blas and Bagnoli blast us into hyperspace for an out-of-this-world journey into a mysterious nebula that forces our daring cast of gems, humans, and fusions to confront their deepest, darkest fears.
“Steven Universe and its characters have had a great impact on so many, so the opportunity to add to this amazing world was too good to pass up. To be able to breathe life into a story about Lars and the Off Colors, a group of misfits trying to find their confidence and where they belong in the cosmos, is exactly the type of story I enjoy writing.” said writer Terry Blas.
“When I received the proposal to draw this adventure I was enthusiastic! Steven Universe is a series full of crazy things and incredible characters that I love. I really enjoyed drawing it, and I hope the readers will have as much fun as I did while working on this comic book.” said artist Gabriele Bagnoli.
STEVEN UNIVERSE™ #25 features a main cover by fan favorite artist Missy Peña (Steven Universe), along with a preorder variant cover by Francesca Perrone.
“There’s so much left to discover about this new space pirate version of Lars and the rest of the crew. We’re excited to give fans a story that shows new facets and sheds new light on these uniquely fascinating characters.” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Sometimes it takes a death-defying adventure into the darkest recesses of the universe to confront what’s hidden inside.”
