The Addams Family: The Bodies comic book will be issued in the Fall by IDW Publishing.
To tie in with the release of the upcoming CG-animated The Addams Family movie, a one-shot comic, The Addams Family: The Bodies – created by writer Zoe Quinn (Goddess Mode) and artist Philip Murphy (Star Trek vs. Transformers) – has been announced.
Wednesday Addams discovers a mysterious tome – one that promises true empowerment to the young woman who wields it. Wednesday decides to complete the dark rituals hidden within this Eleventeen magazine… and achieve ultimate power!
Writer Zoe Quinn commented: “As a goth who fell in love with The Addams Family at a young age, it’s a dream come true to write for the iconic, loving family of oddballs. As a comics creator, I’ve really enjoyed being able to play with visual gags and write the most fun dialogue I’ve ever created, too.”
“The Addams Family is definitely one of those iconic pop culture families that so many people grew up with and love. From Charles Addams’ original New Yorker cartoons to the TV series, movies, and animated series, everybody has their favourites,” added artist Philip Murphy. “It’s definitely a dream project and I am sure that fans old and new will have a howling good time reading it!”
The Addams Family: The Bodies comic book will be released in October.
