It’s an excellent time to be a fan of cult comedy favorite Wet Hot American Summer. Sequel series Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later just hit Netflix—home of 2015 prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp—and now there’s an original graphic novel on the way from Boom Studios.


So far, the only thing we know about the comic is that it will be set between David Wain’s 2001 film and the brand-new sequel, and will follow the adventures of Camp Firewood’s variously raunchy, weird, awkward, and hilarious characters. As you can see from the cover art by Joe Quinones, just about everyone from the movie—which has a gleefully excellent time parodying 1980s summer-camp movies—will make an appearance... yep, even Skylab and the talking can of vegetables.

The full creative team, as well as more story info, will be announced at a later date. Look for the Wet Hot American Summer to hit shelves in June 2018.

This is another much beloved series (like Rick & Morty) that my wife and I don’t get. I can’t tell what it’s going for. The movie was interesting seeing all these now-famous comedic actors in it, but less than half the jokes land for us.

Maybe we should give it another shot? Do the other things (First Day of Camp, Ten Years Later) help?
