Freshmen: Summer Vacation Special #1 Preview

We're pleased to offer you a preview of the Freshmen: Summer Vacation Special #1, which goes on sale this Wednesday, July 2 in comic shops. In addition, we have the hardcover version of Freshmen Vol. 1 coming out this Wednesday.

Freshmen is a comic book co-created by Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Family Guy) and his childhood buddy, Hugh Sterbakov (Robot Chicken). In this extra-sized issue, writer Sterbakov picks up after the events of Freshmen II: Fundamentals of Fear. Freshmen year is over for the superpowered kids of Freese College, but just when they thought they could relax, a new threat arises in the form of a giant plant monster! The fractured team reunites to stop the menace, but defeating the monster bears parallels to some of their personal lives, and in the end, many lessons are learned.

This issue is illustrated by first-time artist Sheldon Mitchell. In addition to the brand-new story, there are Extras in the back, including a sketch gallery, the making of one of the cover, and a first look at Clayburn Moore’s Puppeteer Torso Statuette.
