"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Continuing its avalanche of pre-convention announcements, Dynamite Entertainment this morning revealed it has partnered with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products to develop a comic based on the animated comedy Bob’s Burgers.
Debuting in January 2011 as part of Fox’s Sunday night animation block, Bob’s Burgers centers on the Belcher family — Bob, his wife Linda and their children Tina, Gene and Louise — who run a hamburger restaurant. Although overshadowed on the schedule by The Simpsons and Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers may be one of the most consistently funny, and quirky, shows on television (animated or otherwise). The fourth season premieres in September.
“We could not be more pleased to add Bob’s Burgers to the our line of comics,” Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci said in a statement. “It’s stylish and hilarious, a feel-good concept that can be both heartwarming and mischievous at the same time. When we told our team that we were approaching Fox for the license, everyone lit up at the opportunity. We look forward to working with our partners at Fox to put out a fantastic product that will appeal to readers of all ages.”
The creative team hasn’t been announced.
