Today, Image/Skybound was excited to reveal a new look at Trover Saves The Universe #1 from acclaimed author Tess Stone, based upon the eponymous hit video game by Justin Roiland, Co-Creator of Rick & Morty and CEO of Squanch Games.
This is the first comic book tie-in ever to the Trover video game series, with the debut issue arriving in comic shops this August. Readers will be introduced to new characters Klover and Bo as they follow them along on a whole new adventure in the ICJ!
If you aren’t familiar with it, ICJ (Important Cosmic Jobs)—is a place where employees are ranked by their boss, and at the end of each month, the worst employee literally gets the ax. It’s…not a great gig. But when ICJ’s top eyehole monster winds up dead, the company’s most inept (and rival) employees, Klover and Bo, are falsely accused of his murder and hunted by the Space Cops!
Now Klover and Bo must clear their names and unravel a conspiracy that reaches the very top… that is if they don’t kill each other first!
Trover Saves the Universe #1 features a main cover by Stone and a variant cover by Roiland. It will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, August 4. You can pre-order and purchase it through our ComiXology link.
