WHY WE LOVE IT: “Tome of the Unknown” is a fantastic animated short by Pat McHale (Adventure Time, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack) and we are happy to see it come to life, not only as Cartoon Network’s first original animated mini-series entitled Over the Garden Wall, but also as an over-sized comic! Pat is great and we’re thrilled to get to work with him on this one-shot!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Bringing the classic feel of a Victorian fable, this is a fun journey of two brothers trying to find their way home. With the talent of Pat McHale on story and the illustrative storytelling of Jim Campbell (Star Wars, The Krachmacher) this is definitely going to be an awesome journey that will appeal to fans of The Secret of NIMH, The Triplets of Belleville, and Grimms’ Fairy Tales.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Two brothers, Wirt and Greg, find themselves lost in the Unknown, a strange forest adrift in time. With the help of a shadowy Woodsman and an ill-tempered bluebird named Beatrice, they travel through the foggy land hoping to find their way home and encountering all manner of adventures along the way.
