‘Family Guy’ Comic Book Series Launching In July
Giggity giggity: the Griffins are coming to a comic shop near you.
Titan Comics announced on Monday that they will begin producing a new “Family Guy” comic book series, taking the insane animated series and translating it into paperback comedy gold.
The show, now in its ninth year — and second incarnation, after a number of years off the air — is a groundbreaking suburban sitcom that combines social commentary, ludicrous plot lines and plenty of obscure pop culture shout outs.
Helmed by creator Seth MacFarlane, “Family Guy” follows the Griffin family of Rhode Island as they do things like combat evil closet monkeys, plot to take over the world and drink endless amounts of beer with sex offender friends. It’s already sold 25 million volumes on DVD, and is now betting on its fans’ willingness to read comic books. Probably a smart roll of the dice.
The series hits stands in July.
“Family Guy” has already waded into the paperback world, with a long list of books. Titles include “Stewie’s Guide to World Domination,” “Peter Griffin’s Guide to the Holidays,” and “Family Guy: A Big Book O’ Crap.” They’ve also released manga — or Japanese-style comic — versions of a number of episodes, as well.
