This December you’ll be able to learn more about the different canines who appeared in Image Comics’ recent Stray Dogs miniseries.
Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner’s litter of dogs — who also appeared in one of Image’s Free Comic Book Day titles this year — will return for a two-issue miniseries, Stray Dogs: Dog Days. It’ll feature short stories about each of the dogs.
“We’re so excited to be making more Stray Dogs! When we first pitched the book to Image, we said, ‘This is a tightly paced five issue series BUT—if people dig the book and the characters as much as we do—we also have a special we want to do later where we give each of our dogs their own little spotlight story without slowing down the pacing of the main book,'” Fleecs said. “It’s like an extended edition Blu-ray—The full Stray Dogs story happens in issues 1-5. But if you want to know more about Earl or Imogene or Victor, or get some more context for the story, all of that happens here. Plus, because we’re not locked into this suspense, ‘How will they escape?’ narrative anymore, we can do funny stories or sad stories or action-packed stories or sweet stories. All of the dogs in the book are different, so it’s been really nice to get to do a bunch of different kinds of stories with them.”
Here’s a look at the variant cover for the first issue, along with a few preview pages:
The first issue of the new miniseries comes out Dec. 29. A trade paperback of the first miniseries came out this past Wednesday.
